    Is it possible to have the Google Drive integration to use conditional logic?

     

    I'm working on an expense claim form. I have incorporated form fields such as "approved" and "rejected".

     

    What I was hoping to achieve was only once something was approved would it save to Google Drive.

     

    Is this even possible?

    Unfortunately, this is not possible with our current integrations. 

    Once the form is integrated with any 3rd party service it will forward the data for every received submission.

    If the form is submitted once, will subsequent submissions overwrite the Google Drive files?

    By default, the Google Drive integration will create a separate folder for each of your submissions:

    Even if you change the configuration of your Google Drive integration to use the exact same name for each individual submission, your files should not get overwritten in Google:

    However, for practical reasons, and to be sure there are no issues later on if there are any updates on how Google Drive creates / handles files with the same filename, it is recommended to keep your Google Drive settings such to use a unique name for each submission, in its own uniquely named folder. This is the default configuration offered when setting up the integration.

    You can refer to the following guide on how to set up your Google Drive integration:
