Submissions: Overcome the limit

    Hi - I am a librarian who is working with an institutional repository. Our new workflow involves faculty members sending their published, peer-reviewed works to us and then adding them to the repository. I have created a form via JotForm that allows for faculty members to upload a list of publications (CV) and/or works that they would like to have added to our institutional repository. Primarily, we expect to be receiving WordDocs and PDFs. As we are a public institution, with very real budget constraints we're looking for not only a free service, but a sustainable one. As this new workflow is only just being rolled out, we are concerned that the one hundred submission monthly limit will not always work for us. Would the DropBox add-on help us to get around that potential issue so that if we needed to handle more than one hundred submissions in a month, we'd be able to do so? Thanks!

    Yes you could use Dropbox to store your submissions. However, you would need to delete your submissions regularly so that you stay under limit. 

    One possibility is to use the auto delete app. It deletes your JotForm submissions automatically.


    Another option you have is to apply for the 50% education discount. It is granted to educational organizations. You can apply here:
