    Not having submissions go to dated subfolders in GoogleDrive

    Asked by wilsong on April 16, 2015 at 12:38 PM


    I read that someone else didn't want this to happen and that it was fixed... My submissions (uploaded Word docs) are going to Google Drive, but the sub-folders are by date, which is a pain.  I just want all submissions to go to the upper level GoogleDrive folder that I set up in the form Integration setup.

    Thank you,

    Gayle Wilson

    The way the Google Drive integration works is that it creates a main folder with the form's name (which you can edit) and then creates a sub-folder for each new submission:

    You also choose which field will give the name to that subfolder, but I believe it is not possible to avoid the creation of this subfolder, because it is the way the integration works. 

    This sub-folder will then create 1 file with the submission data and other files if you are receiving uploaded files.

    If you don't want the subfolders named after the date you can select another field, but  I believe it is not possible avoid them.
