    How do I get my JotForm information that flows to a Google Drive spreadsheet to not create a new spreadsheet every time there is a new submission?

    Asked by litmotors on July 11, 2013 at 05:30 PM

    My JotForm flows through to a Google Drive Excel Database and every time there is a new submission, a new google spreadsheet is created. 

    This has been occuring for the last month, whereas before every time there was a new submission it was just added to my pre-existing spreadsheet. Please advise.

    Thanks for your help!

    Actually you can specify a Main Folder and then a sub-folder based on a question in the form

    Like you see in the image:


    So for example you can choose a Main Folder name and a sub-folder based on the Full Name question of your form


    So, in your gdrive, it should look like this:

    Unfortunately Google spreadsheet integration is not setup to have main folders and subfolders yet, this already has been requested, but it's not implemented yet
