To Whom it May Concern:
I am looking to build a form for a "High School Jazz Artist" competiton we are hosting. What I need is a form that we can collect data (name, instrument, age, school, etc.), but also have the capability of uploading 3 mp3s per each submission.
We could have 50-100 applicants, so that could be upwards of 300 mp3s.
My question is what plan will be sufficient for this? Will the "Silver Plan" (100 GB) be enough? Also, is there a limit to size of files? Is there a limit to how many uploads per each form? How do I go about adding "file upload" capability to the form? FYI, I have not started building one yet.

To allow your users to upload files through your form you need to add the file upload field, you will find it by clicking on the "Add Form Element" icon on the left side of the form builder:
The plan you will need to purchase should be based on the files size, for example, there may be some users uploading 1 M files and some others 5 MB files, you could limit the files size on your form so you avoid to receive larger files and reach the limit quickly, here's the guide that will help you with this: https://www.jotform.com/help/33-Changing-the-File-Upload-Size-Limit
By default, the file upload field will only allow one file, but this can be changed by going to the field settings, multiple tab and turning on the option to accept multiple files:
You could also find a form already created on our templates page, please check on our uploads form category here: https://www.jotform.com/form-templates/category/upload-forms
And follow the steps on this guide to use the template: https://www.jotform.com/help/106-How-to-use-the-form-templates
