Click the + button and choose the page that contains how you want to categorize the folder. In our example, we will group the folders by the Name field, which can be found on the Personal Information page.

Next, Insert the value. Now, when a respondent submits a form, their file upload will be stored in a folder under their Name. This means every respondent will have their own folder.
