    Please allow customization of Google Drive integration folder names similar to submission emails

    Asked by Astronauts4Hire on May 01, 2013 at 11:29 PM

    Scenario 1: Use a form to update a membership organization members information - submit new resume, update address, etc.

    Scenario 2: Several types of submissions exist and it would help arranging them in different folders or different names.

    The ask is to allow customization of the folder for each submission by allowing to pick the folder name in a similar way to setting up e-mails, i.e. be able to use fields in the folder name, also add timestamp to the folder name.

    Before I create a ticket requesting about this feature, I just want to be clear.Your request will be naming of the folder in google drive like email subjects on the notification settings. Thanks!

    Thank you for suggesting this nice feature. We have just enabled custom submission folder names on Google Drive integration as requested. 

    It would be great to hear further feedback and suggestions.

    Kind regards

    It's great to see feature requests become reality!

    I played with it and saw the following while setting up the Google Drive integration:

    You may use:
    {id} for submission id, {form_id} for form id

    Are only ID and form_id available or can I also use other parameters from the form (e.g. to make the folder name contain the type of submission, for example, for a form like our contact form at http://www.astronauts4hire.org/p/contact.html)?

    Yes the default ones are {id} for submission id, {form_id} for form id

    But, you should see more options depending on the number of fields you get. For example for this form,  I get more options , so I chose 2 different variable tags, rather than submission ID or Form ID


    So you should see the folders in your gdrive account, like these:
