    Could you please provide more details of what you're trying to achieve? If I understand you correctly, you want to remove the upload link and display the file name text only. Do you want to do that in the submissions data, email notification content, google drive, etc? 

    We'll wait for your response. Thank you.

    Yes!

    and hope to do that in the submissions data, email notification content, google drive also the PDF report.

    Thank you for waiting. 

    Unfortunately, that is not possible here in JotForm. We don't have a feature that can disable the upload link so it will only show the file name text only. However, I have a workaround that can achieve the same result by adding a Condition and a Text field.

    Here's my demo form that you can clone: https://form.jotformpro.com/71901987505968

    In the demo form, I used the Pass Field Value to Another Field condition. I also added a Text field which will copy the upload file name field that will represent the File Name Text only instead of the Upload Link.

    You need to enable/disable the Upload Field in the Submissions Page to hide it and only shows the Copy Upload File Text name. Here's the result:

    For the Notification Email Content, you can remove the Form Field Name of the Upload Field Name and change it to the Copy Upload Field Name. Here's a screen animation:

    For the PDF report and Google Drive, that should work once you have edited the Submissions page by disabling the Upload Field as shown in the screen animation result of my other reply.

    If you have questions, please contact us again.
