    Receive Uploads in Order They Are Submitted?

    Asked by asiemon on January 25, 2016 at 09:43 AM

    Good Morning,

    Is it possible to receive file uploads in the order that they are submitted through a form?

    I have a client I'm using JotForm for that uses the file upload feature to allow law firms to submit documents to them for printing. In many cases, the law firms will upload the document/image files in the order that they want them printed and bound, but when my client receives them, they are in alphabetical order. Is there any way around this?

    Thanks for your help,

    Can you please indicate if integrated your form with google drive or dropbox? In your integration you can always create a subfolder with the time of the submission.

    Please let us know if this helps.

    We don't have integration with Dropbox or Google Drive currently. So just do clarify, with Dropbox integration, can each upload be saved into a unique folder? With the name of the submission and timestamp?

    Unfortunately, Dropbox only allows you to create a subfolder name with the fields in the form. With google drive you can use the SUBMISSION TIME stamp to create a subfolder. You may adjust the Main folder name to anything you like or just leave it as is. By default this will be the name of the form. The sub-folder can be concatenated using fields from the form, time stamp, form ID or submission ID

    Please let us know, if you require further assistance.
