Google Drive: Allow to save submissions on existing gdrive folders

    Asked on May 03, 2013 at 12:53 AM

    Suggestion for Google Drive integration:

    Show a pop-up to place the JotForm submissions folder in a specific Google Drive folder. I realize I can modify the created folder, but this would be more convenient.

    For example, let's say I have the following folder structure in my Google Drive:




    Now I create a form, and I want all of its submissions to go to Folder1/Folder2/Folder3 (Folder3 is a child of Folder2, which is a child of Folder1).

    Today I can name the Google Drive integration folder "Folder3". It will be created next to Folder1. Then I can go to Google Drive and move Folder3 to be under Folder2.

    What I'm suggesting is the ability to select Folder2 when setting up the integration directly.

    I will try to simplify the details. Please correct it if its wrong or not clear.

    Currently, when you integrate to Google drive or Dropbox, there is already an option for "parent folder"(main folder) -- the folder name is base on the name/title of the form.

    And below the main folder are sub-folders created by submissions. The name of the sub-folder can be dictated by the field name that comes from the form. It means that the sub-folder can be targeted already because you can point the submissions to go to this sub-folder (when you specify the field name)

    What I'm suggesting is the ability to select Folder2 when setting up the integration directly.

    You can do this already if you set Folder2 as the field name during integration process.

    BUT I think what you want is, the submission folder to be the "main folder" -- so, what will happen is for every submission, there is "parent folder" on your google drive account.

    I will await your updated response.

    Hi, the actual problem/suggestion that i understood  is, Astronauts4Hire needs to integrate all the form submissions to an already existing folder that the user have in the Google drive, Rather then creating a new one in the root directory it self.

    Let say, he has Folder1 -> Folder2 in his drive before he created a form yet.

    Now he wants to integrate the submissions - creating a parent folder for submission under directory Folder2.

    Which means: the parent folder should create in this way

    /Folder1 -> Folder2 -> [JotForm Form Name ] -> Submissions

    and not in

    /[JotForm Form Name] -> Submissions


    May I correct @Astronauts4Hire

    Yes you are right, sorry though but it is not yet possible with JotForm. Let me forward this as a feature request to our dev team. I am not sure though if this will be most likely considered for implementation since this seems not quite important as it's doable via drive folder already. However, if there's any progress on this request, you guys will be informed here.

    Thank you!
