    Hi, I just set up one of my Jot forms to atomically save submissions to a Folder in my Google Drive. 

    1. How do I set-up a different jot form to save submissions to a different folder?

    2. When my JotForm submissions save to my "JotForm" google drive folder, the system automatically creates a new custom-named folder for each submission. How do I disable that extra, unnecessary, custom-named file folder from being created?


    Thanks!

    When you integrate your form with google drive, you will have the option to provide the main folder name where you want all the submission to be sent. You will also have the option to select the field name or the submission date/time where the individual submissions will be sent under main folder. Please check the screenshot below:

    Please note that submission will always create a new folder in google drive but with a little workaround it is possible to achieve your requirement. Here are the steps you need to follow:

    #1. Add a new short text entry field in form and set the default value to any desired text. You can also hide this field as well.

    #2. Integrate your form with google drive and select this short text entry field in the integration. Please check the screenshot below:
