Google forms with uploads to DropBox

New member | Level 2


We currently use Google forms to capture visit data from our Cleaning and GM rounds, Daily Van checks, Waste tip logs, Chemical spraying logs and Playground safety logs.
We use a simple tick box check list and image uploads via a form that are all neatly sent over to a spreadsheet that shows the data in fields with links to images. 

All this data is downloaded once a month added to our Dropbox and shared with our clients as evidence of service.

Effectively im looking for a way to cut out the middle man (google) and have the same forms, that provide the data, before and after images (images via a clickable link), tasks performed, and so on, via spread sheet.

Thanks for any help in advance

Sorry i forgot to add, that all staff use iphones and windows phones to fill the forms and take images that are uploaded while they are on site. 

This helps give us visibility of when work was done as the spread sheet give a date/time stamp once the upload is complete 


Re: Google forms with uploads to DropBox

Hey there @Accuro-James,
The integration with Google offers to create, edit and share Google Docs, Sheets and Slides within Dropbox. So currently, you wouldn’t be able to save or import your Forms within your Dropbox account. 
It seems that the set up you’re using at the moment might be the most optimal, with backing up your Sheet within Dropbox at certain periods. 
I know that this isn’t exactly what you wanted to hear but I hope it will clarify the situation for you at least. If you have any other questions about this though, please do get back to me here and I’ll be more than happy to help.
Have a great weekend ahead - Thanks!
