    Can JotForm use field responses as file names in googledrive integration?

    Asked by mccollins on July 18, 2013 at 03:27 PM

    I posted this on the forum with no avail. (http://www.jotform.com/answers/245685-Can-jotform-merge-a-field-response-into-the-filename-for-GoogleDrive-integration#0). 

    Is there a way to manage this in the same way you can for DropBox submission?  I am currently "tricking" jotform into doing this by using the Full Name and Email Fields, then renaming the prompts.  However, it still preempts the file name with a timestamp, which dissalows for sorting and organizing by pertinent information.

    Alternatively, is there a way to simply disable the timestamp in the filename in GD integration?

    You can choose a field from your form to be the folder name without the TimeStamp by integrating your form to Google Drive in our form builder. This guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/192-How-to-Integrate-a-Form-with-Google-Drive. But again, there is currently no way you can add Extended Folder Name like what Dropbox have.
