How to Integrate a Form with Google Drive

Last Update: December 13, 2015

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 you 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. The 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. 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 




5. On the next step, you can customize your folder names. Click the "pencil" icon to select the fields as your custom folder name or input your own custom folder name. Clic the "Apply" button to save the selections.





6. Simply click the "Complete Integration" button to save the integration:







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

I have a google drive with a form already receiving data. But I want to add a file upload button that would enable the participants to send a graphic file to be used in the analysis.

How do add / link the file button on jotform to the spread sheet created on google drive ?
Thanks

Is there anyway to have the submissions go to a Google Spreadsheet instead of a PDF file?

I just wanted to double-check the following. When I delete submissions from my JotForm site, ones that have been sent to my Google Drive, I'm only deleting what is stored at JotForm, right? Just want to make sure that I'm not inadvertently also simultaneously deleting them from my Google Drive. That would NOT be a fun surprise! Thanks.

I want to upload files and with each file are specific fields associated with that file. I would like to be able to look at spreadsheet file in Google Drive that shows me every upload that was added through jotform.com and uploaded to my Google Drive. Is this possible? The PDFs that JotForm creates are fine, but not useful for me. Any other solutions out there?

Hi JotForm Support.

I want to create a form with the image upload feature, I know how to do that.

I then want to save the data to a google response sheet which I know how to integrate it too.

I would like the image once uploaded to be inserted into that spreadsheet so that it is view able.

The reason is because I want to public that specific response spreadsheet which is going to have lots of images in it with certain response. I am creating an online live database.

Is this possible?

I have successfully integrated to Google Drive and Google docs.
I would however prefer for each submitted response PDF to go into the same Google Drive folder rather than into a dedicated folder for each submission.
I would prefer a list of PDF rather than PDFs each inside their own folder.

diveakssh (May 19, 2016 at 08:39 PM)

I have done google docs and google drive integration and its working fine.

However, when a student uploads a file, the upload link in the spreadsheet links me to the jotform Server. I need the link that generates into the spreadsheet to be to the file in Google Drive as we want to preview the file in a tab, not download it.

Is this possible with Jotform or do I need to go back to Form+ ?

Description suggests that file uploads will be uploaded to Google Drive, the rest of the thread seems to suggest this is not the case. I have successfully linked and am getting a pdf upload but no file uploads.

Hi ,

Is there any way in which we can have multiple filed updated in google form instead of writing / pasting fields individually ..

The idea ..

I have few friends who give me feedback on monthly basis – this feedback will be in 20 rows & 20 columns , I want to consolidate it in single spreadsheet , in google spreadsheet we can give access to copy-paste their reports but in that case some time people overwrite earlier data , some time they can change (own) earlier data .

I am looking for tool in which they can upload ( copy-paste ) details in one sheet with their credentials which will get auto updated in backend sheet , by doing this I can protect my backend spreadsheet by not giving edit options to others.

Pls help.

I would like the response to go into a different Google Sheet depending on the answer. For instance the question is "Who is this for?" The answers are "Person A, Person B, and Person C." Only Person C needs to see the responses made for Person C- can I make sheet for only responses concerning that person?

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?
