    The PDF file that is forwarded to the integrated Google Drive folder, should automatically include any new fields you have added to your form. This means that any submissions made after that new field was added, should automatically contain that new field in the PDF files.

    When it comes to the Google Spreadsheet integration, it should auto update the columns in the spreadsheet as well, and this happens upon receiving your first submission since a field is added to or removed from your form.

    In other words, when you save your form with a newly added field, and receive the first submission with that new field present on the form, the integrated Google Spreadsheet will be updated with the columns referencing your currently existing form fields.

    If you need any further clarifications, please let us know. Cheers
