    How can I prevent GDRIVE to upload a PDF or attachement as a file with the same name into to GDRIVE folder.
    Instead having it to ovewrite or put a version number would be helpful.
    Imaging a submitter post and then update & post again, which leads to the same files on GDrive, but it is hard to know, which was the last updated file

    You can try to include the submission ID of the submission as the PDF submission's Filename on the PDF Editor page. I will confirm on my end if that will work and I'll get back to you on this ticket with my findings.

    Apologies for any delays. Upon testing, it seems that changing the File Name of the PDF document on the PDF Editor page will not change the filename of the PDF Submission sent to Google Drive.

    However, your requirements can be achieved by doing this instead in the Google Drive integration settings.

    The only issue here is that every submission will become under different subfolders.
