    Feature Request: Automatically set a name of PDF Submission from one of the field?

    Asked by shaneseverson on February 19, 2013 at 07:32 PM


    I'm new to JotForm, loving it so far. I've integrated my form with Google Drive successfully, and it's auto-populating the folder names the way I want. Now I'm wondering if there's a way to go a level deeper and auto-name the generated PDF submission in the same manner as the folders (please see attached screenshot)? All of the submissions in each folder auto-populate as "submission.pdf" by default, which could be more helpful. Any suggestions?

    Hi Shane,

    Unfortunately auto-renaming a submissions PDF is not currently with possible with JotForm. However, well take note of this in the future so our developers will be able to consider this addition. Sorry about that. Thanks!
