How to connect my online fillable forms to my Google Drive?
To help you quickly connect your online fillable PDFs to your Google Drive, we created a step-by-step guide below.
- Before anything else, make sure that you are logged in to your PlatoForms and Google Drive accounts. It is also recommended that you prepare the folder/s you’d use to organize your data. If you don’t have accounts on these apps yet, then go ahead and create one.
- Go to PlatoForms dashboard and find the online PDF form that you would like to connect to your Google Drive.
- Once you find the PDF form, click on the gear icon located in its upper right corner, and you’ll see a dropdown option. From the dropdown option, look for, and click Cloud Drive.
- After the Cloud Drive application options window pops up, go to the Google Drive tab and toggle on Connect.
- When the authorization window appears, click on Allow. Make sure that you’re using the right Google account.
- Now that you’ve authorized the account you’ll use to organize your data, set the folder where you want to store them, and toggle on the settings based on your preferences.
For example, if you want to upload even the attachment files that the user submits, then toggle on Upload Attachment Files. The same goes for the other options.
You should also note that if you toggle on Create Subfolder, then you have to set up the name of that subfolder.
Pro Tip: You can set and use the name of your online form’s fields as subfolder names. We created a detailed guide here.
Once you’re satisfied with your connection settings, click Save. It’s also important to test if the settings are applied and if it’s already working on your online PDF form.
We hope these steps are helpful! If you’re using other cloud drive storage, you can check our FAQ for more details.
