    File upload: MINIMUM file size.

    Asked by isoiso on October 29, 2012 at 05:22 AM

    Is it possible to create a MINIMUM file size for upload?  We use this to gather data from client for print and it's vital that we stop them uploading files that are too small..

    Hi, 

    We are sorry but it is NOT possible. You can only set Maximum File Size in Jotform. No Minimum Limits. 

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Welvin,

    Thanks for the quick reply. 

    I realised that it was not possible,  I wonder if it is something you'd consider as a development in the future?  The file upload is a great feature and it's well executed but this would be a useful addition and most of the javascript / jquery plugins I've looked at have this variable.  I would prefer to use JF for this but understand if not.

     

    Thanks,

     

    Chris

    Hi Chris,

    I will try to forward this to our developers. But I'm not sure if this is something they might want to consider in future. 

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Chris,

    I have forwarded your request to our dev team.  Unfortunately, due to the fact that they are extremely busy, we can not give you an ETA on this feature.  We will contact you as soon as there are any updates on this.

    Meanwhile, you can use the following suggestion to make your users aware of the quality issues of uploading a small file.

    Let us know if this helps!

    We are also a print shop and have the same issue we notify our customers on the form that 1.2 is the minimum file size, but it doesn't stop them, is this something that can be developed please.

    I don't feel like this is that difficult of a think to do, why can't we just get it done?

    Hello,

    At this time the request is still pending, this is due to the workload of feature requests the Development Team already has roadmapped. Once the Development Team has evaluated this request we will have an update.

    I would suggest in any case for you to create a new thread to request this feature. So that individual requests are weighed in when the request is evaluated.

    Thank you again.

    Hello Chris,

    I understand that this is an old feature request already.  But to update you on this, we've now managed to implement setting a minimum file size upload on file upload elements. You can modify the settings on this by clicking properties on the file upload field, when editing your form.

    Please let us know if you have further questions or concerns.

    Thanks.
