    Hi there,

    I just want to confirm, you want to use an already existing folder in your drive as the receiving folder for the integration, right?

    If this is what you want, unfortunately, it's not possible. The Google Drive integration automatically selects the PARENT folder based on your own form's name. Then you have the option to edit the folder's name. In that parent folder, subfolders will be created based on field values that you set.

    This just means that we cannot pre-select the folder where it is going to. It is also always going to go through the "My Drive" directory. So the Shared Drives are not an option.

    As an alternative, you can use the Google Drive integration from Zapier. I believe they do have the option to find specific folders where you can send the data to. Here's a link for that: https://zapier.com/apps/jotform/integrations/google-drive

    I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Thank you!
