Google Drive Uploader – Building a Drag and Drop Uploader form for Google Drive

Google Drive doesn’t natively support upload forms that can be used by anyone. If you try and add an upload question to a Google Form you will get this message: “Respondents will be required to sign in to Google when file upload questions are added to a form”.

If collecting documents from anyone is important to you, then you’ll need to use third-party software that integrates with Google Drive.

Create a drag and drop drive uploader form that natively integrates with Google Drive

With File Request Pro you can create a customised and secure drive upload form that allows you to collect files and content from anyone. These files and content are then automatically sent to the Google Drive folder of your choice.

You can create a branded upload form using your logo and colours:

Your clients simply need to fill in the form and drag and drop files.

You can have as many file upload fields as you need, and even the basic plan allows files of up to 5GB. There is no limit to the number of clients who fill in your forms, or the number of forms you need to create. Pricing is clear and unambiguous.

You can create one-page or multi-page forms, depending on your requirements.
