    Can links to downloaded spreadsheet be "live"

    Asked by mreade on December 22, 2016 at 05:34 AM


    Hello Jotform

    In the form above I ask applicants to upload a document.  Is it possible for the links to these documents to by "live" when the submissions are downloaded into the spreadsheet?  This would be a really useful feature for me.

    As I understand you want the links on the spreadsheet to open a new page to preview the upload when clicked.

    If this is the case please confirm that and we will open a feature request about it. If it is not, please elaborate the issue further.

    Awaiting your response.

    Hi Seth
    Yes, that’s right. At the moment the links are “dead” as in the screen shoot below. It would be a great feature if they could be live and I could go straight to the uploaded file from the excel download. Best, Michael
