    Need alternate progress indicator for uploads

    Asked by editiononebooks on June 09, 2017 at 08:01 PM

    I'd like to have a visible progress bar shown under the file upload buttons on my form instead of the percentage indicator that is included with this prebuilt form. Ideally, something bold and obvious. My customers send us very large files and the uploads can take awhile. I want to them to have an obvious visual showing that progress is being made.

    It is not possible to change the upload progress bar, but you could try with a widget, for example, the Drag and Drop Upload widget will show a different bar: https://widgets.jotform.com/app/drag_and_drop_upload 

    You will also find more upload widgets here: https://widgets.jotform.com/category/file_upload 

    This guide will help you adding a widget to your form: How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-your-Form

    Hope this helps.
