    have just seen your service, impressive.


    we want to use a file upload form, i.e. our clients upload documents to us.

    is it possible to get the documents automatically archived/uploaded in the clients private folder?



    The problem:

    if clients upload files we want to make sure 100% that our client files are separated.

    Normally the file names are "neutral", i.e. "picture_12345", with no info about the client uploading the file.



    Please get back to me with reply and suggestion how to solve this.

    With kind regards

    Mr Andreas Lindgren

    Hi Andreas,

    You can use the dropbox or google drive integration feature of JotForm. Using this feature will give the capability to store the uploaded files into the folders that correspond to a field name from the form.

    i.e. Name -- if your form have a field called Name, when you integrate to dropbox, you can set the destination folder as the Name. So, everytime the same user upload a file.. it will go to his/her folder name.

    Hope this help. Please inform us for any other inquiry.

    Hi, thanks for your swift reply.

    I looked at the Dropbox before, did not see the possibility you are suggesting, thanks for the info.

    Will check this, this is a good solution if it works.

    You can set a folder to where the submissions will go on Dropbox by going to your form submissions page, then managing your dropbox integration. See this visual guide:

    With Google Drive, you can set the Main Folder Name and Submissions Folder Name during the integration.

    I hope this helps. Thanks
