    I imbedded a JotForm into a Google Doc.  I then linked the Google Doc to a button on my weebly website.  What I am intending to happen is for students to use the button to drop a PDF of their report card (grades) into the folder on my Google Drive.  However, I do NOT want students to have access to the PDF files that other students drop into the folder.

    Will students have access to the files that are dropped into the folder on my Google Drive that other students have dropped in there?

    Will the file names of the PDFs that are already in the folder be visible to the students when they click on the button that I created?

     

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi Linda,

    No.

    Unless you do the sharing on your Google drive account for other people to access your Google drive, the integration to JotForm will not change any security or sharing configuration in your Google account.

    Will the file names of the PDFs that are already in the folder be visible to the students when they click on the button that I created?

    Still No. The same reason I mentioned about your Google account security settigns.

     

    Hope this help. Inform us if there are other question.

    Thanks.
