    Hi, I am using Google Drive integration.

    Am using the User Contributed Dropdown widget field ID = {demisedPremises}

    It seemed this widget is not able to pull the data out and is shown {demisedPremises} in Google Drive folder name. Same for the PDF file generated. All other fields are ok.

    Is there anyway to work around this? Or I have to use the normal dropdown list? 

    Thanks!

    I have been testing this and I can see the issue, I will pass this to our second level so our developers can have a look on this, we will keep you updated via this thread.

    Noted. Thanks! Either it is the widget itself or it could be the "hyphen" or even "[ ]" I put inside he options causing some problem? Just to make it easier for troubleshooting. The field name works fine for the rest of email & PDF.

    Yes, the field can only be mapped using curly braces, you can not pull data or name a field with another sign or special characters.

    Let us know if you are referring to something else.

    Thanks. Just to be clear, you are saying that my options inside widget
    shouldn't contain "-" or "[ ]" ?

    I see. It seems you're referring to this (see screenshot below).

    If this is an option in the fields then it is allowed.

    What I'm referring before that is not allowed is naming the folder in google drive integration with [demisedPremises] or -demisedPremises-.

    Hi, I use the {demisedPremises} field in the naming/creation of folder as
    forms are submitted. All the rest of the fields used are fine except for
    this widget.
