    How are the files received from the drag and drop widget?

    Asked by muuv on March 01, 2017 at 09:04 AM

    I have inserted the drag and drop widget into a form and tested it. It worked fine. The only thing I don't know is...where is the file? How is it sent to us when a member drags and drops a file into the form? Thank you!

    I believe you are basically asking is how is the file received after being uploaded via the Drag and Drop widget.

    When a user uploads a file via the drag and drop widget it is just attached to the form.

    However, when they submit the form it is then sent to our servers and shows up on your form as a link for you to access when viewing your form submissions.

    Example:
