The File Upload field allows form users to upload files as part of their form response. This typically includes photos, PDFs or other files that are saved on their computer or device. When using a mobile device, they can also choose to take a photo on the spot.
Form users can select multiple files for uploading at the same time. Alternatively, you can add multiple File Upload fields to the form to separate your file requirements.
Uploaded files can be viewed and managed either within their particular response via the View Responses tab or along with all other files in the File Manager tab.
Tip: You can configure notification emails to add uploaded files as attachments to notification emails for form responses.
- In the Form Fields panel (left-hand side), click and drag the File Upload field onto your form.
- Enter the question or name.
- (Optional) Tick if answering this question is compulsory.
- Save & Close.
