    Why are we unable to view any files submissions from our form?

    Asked by krudbeck on January 31, 2017 at 11:46 AM

    We cannot see any content from the file submissions we have gathered. Can you help us solve this issue?

    I see you're having a problem with some uploaded file submissions that were supposed to be sent to you on your form.

    After investigating this problem further I found that your upload field isn't required so this means your form could be submitted without a file being attached even if not at all. 

    I believe this is the cause of your issue and would suggest enabling the requirement.

    So the submissions that we made have no content at all? It says that we have file uploads but I can't open them.

    I see two submissions on your form and like what my colleague have explained above, the submissions were submitted with the upload field in your form left unfilled. Please note that if there is a file uploaded to your form, it will show you a link to the file on your submission page on that field. Do you mean that there is a link but when you click it, you cannot open it?

    Thank you.

    Yes, you cannot open it because it is in an unrecognizable format. Karlie RudbeckMarketing Coordinator  The Arc of Greater Boone County900 W Main StreetLebanon, IN 46052317-482-6815 ext.103 Office765-610-9067 Cellkrudbeck@thearcgbc.orgwww.thearcgbc.org

    Hi,

    I could not reproduce what you are experiencing, as when I open the submissions I see no links to the file uploads.

    Could you please provide us with these links to the unrecognizable format files? That would help us inspect further.

    Thank you in advance. We're awaiting your reply.
