Attachments in Forms Personal store in OneDrive

Attachments in Forms O365 Group store in SharePoint

 

Why are the attachments storing in folders in SharePoint (4 levels deep).  Can we get them to the root and use metadata?   Simple form to send Contracts for approval with metadata Pending Reviewing Approved.  I don't understand why is Microsoft using Folders???

 

Thanks

Hi @John Reeb 

 

I share the same frustration with not being able to nominate a pathway for the uploaded attachments, but unfortunately this is current functionality.

 

As it's a new feature and a useful one, my feel is that the good folks in Microsoft Forms team will add this ability in a future release.
