There are many cases where you need to have a form that accepts files and/or documents. Like, say, a CV for a job application form or a school project for an online quiz. 

But where do these files and documents go after the user clicks submit? 

They go straight to your Google Drive or Dropbox account via integration.

Here's how you can create this workflow:

1. Select a form

First thing you need to do is login to your MightyForms app.

Once there, you can either create a new form, or select an existing form from your dashboard

2. Go to Settings

With the selected form open, click on 'Settings'.

3. Go to Integrations

Then click on 'Integrations'. Here is where you'll connect your Google Drive or Dropbox account.

4. Connect with Google Drive or Dropbox

When you click 'Connect' you simply have to sign in and allow MightyForms to access your files and folders.  There are specific tutorials on how to integrate your Google Drive account or your Dropbox account if you want to see more details. 

5. Go back to the form 

Once you've integrated with one of those Cloud services, go back to your form's dashboard by selecting 'Project View' from the breadcrumbs on the left.

6. Click 'Edit'

Then click on 'Edit' from the options to the right.

7. Add the 'Upload File' field

To add a File Upload field look to the left corner of the page where your builder toolbox is. Under Basic Fields, you'll find the File Upload field, select it and drag and drop wherever you want it in your form.

8. Set up 'Upload File' properties

Select the File Upload field once it's in your form and you'll see it's properties on the toolbox.

It will automatically activate the connected account and send the files/documents to the root folder unless you change it.

Note: if you have both a Google Drive and a Dropbox account integrated, simply select the one you want this particular set of submitted files to be sent to.
