Feature request: a file manager for uploaded files

    Thus far, I use a dummy form to which I have an image element in which I upload the image needed in the true form. This puts the image in the list of "uploaded" images. The URL for all those images, stored in Jotform, seem to work just fine for me.

    The only issue I seem to have is figuring out the URL. I usually display the temporary form as a user would then do a 'inspect' with browser or right click and "open image in new tab". A valse I wish I could avoid, but seems simpler to compare with what you suggest (less steps ?)

    A problem is managing those images. Can we delete any of those images ? (I forget) What happens if a form still is using a deleted image ? (I suspect it gets the 'no image found' thingy.) It doesn't seem to warn about duplicates - it just takes the new upload and tweaks the name (?)

    It would be nice to be able to have 'folders' to organise the images. When the list of images gets long, the selector's behaviour can get affected (becomes slow as it does mini thumb views, ...) Actually, to have a file manager of some sort somewhere in Jotform's user interface. One could mass upload/update images and such (ex: school logos) ...

    I love Jotform. There seems to always have at least one or more ways around any issue ...

    Thank you for your feedback. I agree that would be a very cool feature. So I have escalated this feature request to Level 2 support.
