    How do I customize my submitted forms to google drive so they have a meaningful folder name instead of random numbers

    Asked by guest_23113856741048 on November 08, 2012 at 08:58 AM

    I have set up a test form that is submitted to my google drive when you click the submit button. The problem I have is that each submitted form creates a folder in my google drive with random number generated for the folder name which means I it isn't easy managed if I have a large number of submissions. Is there a way the created folders can have a meaningful name such as using the company name or the name of the person who submits the form as the label name for the folder so I dont have to open each folder individually to check the details within the form to work out where it cam from?

    Yes, that is possible. When integrating to Google Drive, please choose a submission folder name from your form fields on the dropdown selection;

    I hope this helps.

    That appears to be a bug in your account because when I cloned the form and attempted Google Docs integration on my end, ten (10) fields showed up in the dropdown. I'll submit a ticket to see how quickly we can get this matter resolved for you.

    Our apologies for any inconvenience which may have been caused.
