    Google Drive or Dropbox integration

    Asked by tycoprinting on January 14, 2016 at 09:03 PM

    By integrating google drive or dropbox into our form do you know if there is any way to set it up so it's doing a one-way sync meaning that it just puts the uploaded file onto our local computer instead of syncing everything within that folder?

     

    Thank you.

    I believe that the way both Dropbox and Google Drive function of themselves, is to first sync the uploaded file into their online storage, and then copy/sync that file from the online storage onto your local PC.

    If I understand it, you would like to send a copy of the file directly to your local PC, without it going to the online storage. Unfortunately, that is not possible as far as I know.

    If you are instead asking about being able to sync only the JotForm folder with your submissions, while not syncing the rest of your folders between the local PC and online storage on Dropbox / Google drive, then that is possible by using the Selective Syncing in Dropbox:

    Or the Sync individual folders in Google Drive:

    I hope this helps.
