    Jotform file upload and joomla user name

    Asked by tcgass on July 10, 2012 at 04:56 PM

    Hi there,

    I'm getting into handling jotform and I really love it! I just created a file upload form that I've integrated into my joomla 2.5 site.

    When people upload a file for me, it will be stored in a dropbox folder named "first name" "last name". I wonder if there is a way that jotform automatically gets the "first name" and "last name" from the joomla user account, when the user is logged in. In other words: I publish the form only for logged in users, and they don't have to type in their names anymore.

    Thanks for any hint,

    Hi Thomas,

    Thank you for using our service and appreciating JotForm.

    Unfortunately, the Joomla integration you were looking for is not available at this current version of JotForm. So you will have to make use of the current method when using the upload process.

    In case you are not aware yet, the feature you mention is doable in Facebook (just in case you have way to integrate your Joomla site to Facebook) . Check this guide

    Feel free to contact us again anytime if you have other inquiry.
