    I need to integrate with Google Drive generating the folders like this:


    GoogleDrive-> {order_number}/{file_name}.pdf


    Since I have multiple forms to each order, I would need different file names. Currently I can only set the final folder name... Any fix since I see this is a request since 2015?


    Thank you,

    Pedro

    Hi Pedro, unfortunately, our Google Drive integration still doesn't allow the user to customize the directory structure used to save data from the form submissions into Google Drive, so you won't be able to deviate from the standard pattern established, that is:

    [Folder Name > Field Name]

    As it is today, you can't use the Google Drive Integration to save data directly into the root directory of your Google Drive, neither create subfolders that deviate from the current pattern for directory showed earlier.

    I've escalated this feature to our development team, so they can add this feature to Jotform on a timely date. Since this is a very requested feature, probably it won't take too long for this feature to get added for the Google Drive Integration.

    Please allow me to inform you that the implementation of a certain feature depends on the popularity of the request among our users and the workload of our developers, so we cannot provide an exact time frame for when a certain feature request will be implemented.

    We'll update you regarding this feature via this thread.


    Feel free to contact us,

    Thanks.

    Hi there.

    "so they can add this feature to Jotform on a timely date" - it is sad to see that this is being asked for more than 3 years!

    I like Jotform and used to pay for a premium account in the past. I'm going to review some other options because this features is a deal-breaker for me.

    Thank you for your answer,

    Pedro
