    Google sheets, exclude url, use only file name?

    Asked by cantugraphics on February 28, 2016 at 08:12 PM

    Hello I found a thread that was the exact same thing I need but opposite. 


    I would actually only like to see the uploaded file name show up on my google sheet not the full url

    Also I would like to know if its possible to have additional columns calculate how many files/submissions were uploaded per category? For instance, if they uploaded 2 files in ORDER FORMS, I would like to have an additional column show the quantity 2. Same for the MAPS upload button.

    Unfortunately there is no possible workaround to achieve your desired output because the values on the spreadsheet are defined to that integration by default so customization is not allowed. It is also not possible to detect how many files have been uploaded in the upload field. A possible workaround would be to add a Spinner field in your form that asks the user to select the number of files that they uploaded.

    If you need further assistance, do let us know.
