Send Your Form Uploads to Google Drive

We are very excited to announce our new integration with Google Drive. You can now send files uploaded on your forms directly to your Google Drive folder. 

                                 



Google Drive is a great way to share your files among different computers and mobile devices. Integrating your form with your Google Drive account takes less than a minute. Once your complete the integration, when someone submits your form we will instantly send uploaded files and the data on the forms to your Google Drive folder.  



The screenshot above describes what happens when you integrate with Google Drive.
1. Folder name will be same as your form name, so that you can see all of your files under a single folder for each form. 
2. Individual submission folder names can be customized. So, for example, you may choose to have the "Name" question on your form for that. 
3. We will also create a PDF file that contains all data submitted with the form. 
4. Finally, all of the uploaded files will be transferred to this folder.



I am sold! How can I start using Google Drive integration? 


1. First, open your form on the Form Builder and click on Integrations button on the toolbar.







2. Select Google Drive on the list of integrations.




3. On the first page of the wizard you will be asked to give JotForm permissions from your google drive account. Click on Authenticate to do that. 




4. A small pop-up window will request permissions. Click on Allow access


5. On the next step, you can customize your folder names. 





6. That's all. Your integration is all set. You can now start getting files on your Google Drive.

    --Does each submission need to have a sub folder?
    --Does it need to include the PDF summary?
    --May the files be loaded into one large folder with all other files?
    --Is it possible to assign an automatic numbering system to the file name?
    Thank you!

    Can I view my secure forms on my Google Drive? The integration is working, but I cannot read them. My Drive is secure through Google Apps for Work.

    Hello,

    This is a great feature, but I would like to protect the anonymity of the uploader. Can you disable the pdf submission details that accompany file uploads?

    Cheers,

    Andrew

    Nice. Can I upload the form link into Drive for sharing. I want to share forms into multiple student folders using Hapara Teacher Dashboard, but the form has to reside in Drive to be able to do this. Thanks.

    If the same user uploads different files, is there a way to keep them in the same "folder" of Google Drive?
    Can we pass a parameter with a user id and use it to name the folder?
