Would you like to anonymously receive files in Google Drive? Provide your customers and colleagues with a simple-to-use drag and drop file upload page? With the need to use users IDs, google accounts, or complex requirements?

In this post, I’m sharing a method to build a branded file uploader that’s fully sync with your Google Drive account. All this without coding or complex scripts.

Creating a Drive Uploader Form for Google Drive

The upload page we are building does not require your users to have a Google Account, like google forms does. And it’s fully branded both with your logo and brand colours.

Before diving into the implementation, let’s take a look at a sample form.

Creating a new upload form with File Request Pro is a 5-min process, you do it once and you can use it for as long as you need.

To get started, you need to register and connect to your existing Drive account. Afterward, you can access your admin area to create your drag and drop form page.
