Amazon S3 or DropBox IntegrationAsked by Jason Lombard on May 15, 2012 at 11:56 PM
Hi guys, just stumbled on to JotForm from the Smashing Magazine website. I've been using several other form-builders and really like what I see with yours. However, I also have one feature on my wishlist that you don't currently offer. I would gladly pay the $10 monthly if I could get Amazon S3 or Dropbox integration for the file upload feature. Think about it, you guys still get to sell a "premium" level, and you don't have the bear any of the associated overhead with regard to bandwidth.
As far as I know, you'd be the only ones out there offering such a feature (there may be a reason for that, I don't know). But I work with a photographer who offers a professional color-correcting service for large photos and we've been looking for just such a service so he can charge the customer and then allow the customer to upload the file for correction.
Anyway, just an idea that would help you get one customer—I can't guarantee any more than that. :-)
Thank you for the interest in JotForm, we are using Amazon(S3) to store uploaded files and Premium users get 10GB of the upload space. You can also integrate the form to your Dropbox account if you wish to save the files there this feature is available to both free and paid JotForm subscribers.
For more information on how to integrate Dropbox to your form you may visit this link:

What about connecting the form to my S3 account?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to connect your form to your own S3 account. The only way to get more upload space is to upgrade your Jotform account. As suggested by my colleague, you may integrate your form to Dropbox, which is another way of saving your files.
it's not the space i'm worried about, it is the fact that eventually the files will be uploaded to my S3, so it seems unnecassery to upload the files to my dropbox/google drive and from there to my S3 if I can upload directly to the S3.
Thanks for the info, i've seen this was requested a few times, so I suggest to consider it in your future releases.
The rest of the service is great!
