    Can I turn off the feature that setups a separate folder for each submission and cover sheet

    Asked by jwegmeyer on June 09, 2014 at 12:39 PM

    I have been testing Jotform as a way to embedded  a form in my companies internal website, which was built using Google Sites.  I built a form that allows employees to upload files to a folder on a Google Drive. It looks like each time a doc is submitted a new subfolder is created for that document as well as a cover/info sheet as well.  I would like to stop both of these processes and have the upload file go dirctly into the main folder with out any additional documents being created.  If possible can the form be set up to simply upload the file with out doing anything else?

    Hello,

    Sorry but that is not possible. That's how the integration works what you can only do to assign which field you wanted the folder name to be so if you wanted the folder name to be displayed whatever the name of the "First name" field will be then that is possible but uploading the filed without touching or creating subfolders is currently not possible.

    Every time you re-integrate your form with google drive it creates a new folder and subfolders. Linking back to the old folder from what I know is not possible as well.
