How to share files uploaded with requestors and recipients
When files are uploaded to your Google Form, the add-on will include the link to
the files on email notifications. If your requestors or recipients need access to
these files, you will need to ensure sharing permissions (of the Google Drive
folder) are set appropriately.
To access the Google Drive folder:
- Open your Google Form
- Click the Responses tab
- Locate the question(s) that asks the user to upload a file
- Click the View Folder link
- This will open up the folder where files uploaded are stored
Once you have located the folder(s), share access to the folder by following the steps on
You may share the folder with specific people, anyone with access to the link, or
a group of people. Set a permission level that you are comfortable with. Any files uploaded
to your form will inherit the same sharing permissions as you set for the folder.
If you have multiple file upload questions in your form, you will need to perform
the above steps for each folder.
