    Auto upload of files to Google drive

    Asked by gmbph01 on October 26, 2014 at 09:50 PM

    Hello Jotform,

    Is it possible to upload files automatically when submitting a form (i.e. have a saved file in server or preferred location in a computer)?

    What I am trying to achieve is to have a file uploaded automatically to google drive so it is already located to the destination folder. At the moment I keep on edtiing a templated document and dragging it manually to the destination folder which is a repetitive task anyway. At least when it is submitted together with the form I can avoid that mundane task.

    Any ideas?

    Kind regards,

    Hi Genesis,

    The Google Drive integration do auto upload the uploaded files to the Google account.

    Is there any possibility of uploading files to google drive with no manual intervention. I have multiple text files which I need to upload every day. It is very monotonous work. 
    I have tried using Google drive integration but in that case also, I have to use 'upload' button to locate the file and submit it.
