Can I move the Google spreadsheet to a folder other than the default one created by Jotform?Asked by sabsentral on November 08, 2013 at 10:28 AM
I am using this tool for attendance in my classroom. I have a folder called "Attendance" in my Google Drive. I would like all 5 attendance forms to go into this folder but the integration tool simply continues to create a new folder called "Attendance" each time.
Thanks for contacting us.
Are you refering if there is a way to collect into one single folder, that you choose/create, the pdf files of multiple forms that are linked to google drive through our integration? If that's correct, let me inform you that's not possible. Our integration creates one folder per each form and one sub folder per each submission of the form.
Please correct if I've misunderstood your request so that we can give you the proper assistance. Kindly open a new thread to make unrelated questions.
This is what I am trying to do.....
I will be having each of my students (25) use the attendance form daily to submit their attendance to me electronically. Are you saying that each time one student submits a response that it will create a separate google spreadsheet file?
I don't want each form to be in a separate file or even folder as that will create a very chaotic and disorganized record keeping system.
Here is a page where I have used the other form I created for students to do a self-assessment which will also be happening daily. Please tell me if there is a more efficient way I can accomplish this task.
Thanks for your explanation. And accept my apologize as I misunderstood your request, you are talking about storing the Spreadsheet integration and I thought you were refering to the Google Drive integration.
So, making this clear:
The Google Spreadsheet Integration will collect the data of each submission of your form in one single spreadsheet. This spreadsheet will be stored in a folder that Jotform will create in your Google Drive. You can rename that folder with a title you prefer while building the integration:
So, it won't create one folder per each submission you receive.
If you have 5 forms and if you build the Google Spreadsheet integration for each one of them, the integration will create a folder and one spreadsheet so that the data of the submissions of each form will be separated. Each form will follow the process I explained above.
Please let us know if you need further assistance or kindly open a new thread to make unrelated questions.
Ok so in any case each individual form will be stored in a separate folder within Google Docs? Will it create a sync issue with the submission results if I physically move those response spreadsheets into one folder rather than having 5 folders called "Attendance"?
Yes, by default each individual form will be stored in a separate folder, however, I just tested the behavior of the spreadsheet by moving it to a different folder other than the default one, then sent some submissions and the data was successfully added to the spreadsheet. So, I think you may try moving the spreasheets all in one single folder. But if the result is different from your side, let us know.
I hope this helps. Please let us know if you still need our assistance with this or kindly open a new thread to make unrelated questions.
