Form Uploads Manager

Form Uploads Add-on

Stop manually uploading files to Google Drive™, sorting, renaming and adding individual tags / descriptions! Configure Google Form™ add-on once to upload files and images, then each new item will be

- uploaded to the correct folder;

- appropriately renamed;

- an individual description will be added, with tags for quick search;

- items can be shared with the uploader or others from the defined list;

- a list of all uploaded items with an URL for quick access can be sent by email.

Upload subfolders, item name and description may contain placeholders defined in form fields.
