    Google Drive: How to save files in the same folder?

    Asked by tkatzer on January 29, 2016 at 02:25 PM

    Is there a way to make it so all of the submitted files show up in one folder instead of inside a folder for each submission? Also, when viewing the Google spreadsheet there is a direct link to the file that that was submitted. Is there a way to modify it so the link is to the file in my Google Drive so I don't have to download the file again from your site? Thank you.

    Unfortunately, there is no way to save all your uploaded files in the same folder, they will be saved in different folders, it's to do not generate confusion when you are trying to find a file, so for example, if you would like to find X file and you have all the files in the same folder, then it could be so hard, but having the files in different folders, you only need to find the submission and then open the folder to get the file.

    In regards to the link in the spreadsheet, no, you can not replace it with the link to your Google Drive, it can only be the link to our server.

    The uploaded files, if that's what you mean are automatically added into the folder of the submission along with the PDF copy. If you'd like to save the files into a different folder, unfortunately, it's not possible at this moment.
