    How can I require attachments to form submissions?

    Asked by certified.trainer on January 19, 2017 at 04:16 PM

    We are trying to leverage JotForm to collect expense reports and want to be able to require attachments to submissions. Is that possible? (We hope so because we love JotForm :)

    I assume you are referring to uploading files through your form(s) when you say attachments, is that correct?

    If it is, then yes, it is possible for you to do that. You can add a File Upload field to your form and set it as a required field so it will not be left unfilled/empty by your respondents.

    Here are guides that may help you set up the File Upload field.
