Step 1: Would be to submit the form that requests three attachments under three questions.
Step 2: The attachments get stored in SharePoint to their respective folder based on question number instead of a folder for each form submission. Meaning SharePoint creates a folder called Q14 for attachment 1 (for all form submissions) and Q15 for attachment 2 (for all submissions) and Q15 for attachment 3. I would rather have folders as submission 1 with files for Q14,Q15,Q16 and submission 2 with files for Q14,Q15,Q16 and so on.
Does it make sense ? :|

Yeah that upload thing per question rather than within a submission is certainly annoying (I experience the same annoyance).
I'm not aware of anyway to change that behavior at present short of a probable workaround using Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow) to move the files to where I want them to be.
Alternatively, the experts at https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Community/ct-p/PowerApps1 may have some other ideas on how to resolve this?
