    Hi, I have set this up and it's great. My form requests documents (pdf) and they appear as a link in the spreadsheet cell in the drive account (wonderful). To open the document from the link you're asked to download the document. I'm wondering if there is a way to view the document in the browser (considering it has a pdf view url)?

    Many thanks.

    You will have to download the PDF file to view it.

    If you want to view it within your browser, you can use Google Chrome browser. This supports PDF viewing but you will still need to download the PDF file first before you use Chrome browser as the PDF viewer.
