    Google integration: Google submissions spreadsheet links to a file on JotForm servers not to the one uploaded to Google Drive

    Asked by m1cr0ch1p on October 08, 2014 at 10:58 AM

    I have a form that includes a file upload.  I set the integration so that the file gets uploaded to Google Drive and it is working.  I also set it so that it uploads the response to Google Spreadsheet.  However the link to the file in the spreadsheet is linking to a url on JotForm and not to the file on Google Drive.


    How can I make the file go only on Google Drive?

    Every time a file is uploaded through the jotform the file first goes to jotform server and only then it is sent to Google servers because of the Google drive integration.

    Now following this you could remove the file from the JotForm servers so that it is only located on your Google Drive right after it is transferred to it by using this app Auto Delete Submissions.

    Now in regards to having the link to the file uploaded on Google drive in your spreadsheet, I would raise that as a feature request so that our developers can take a look at it and see if it would be possible to implement it.

    They will update you on this through this thread if this feature is added to JotForm.

    Best Regards,
