    Is there a way to update the field so that the email notification alerts
    the recipient that an upload was made (and is accessible by logging in to
    jotform account)? Essentially, I just need the field to show y/n if form(s)
    were uploaded, but *not* to include the form itself.
    Thanks,
    Brad

    Please test my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/80965203655965

    Is that what you're trying to achieve? When the user did not upload, the email alert will say that there's no attachment file added and vice versa when the user successfully uploaded a file.

    In the demo form, I added a new hidden field that will be updated depending on the File Upload status. I also used the Update/Calculate field condition. For more information about the condition, please check this link: https://www.jotform.com/help/268-How-to-Insert-Text-or-Calculation-into-a-Field-Using-Conditional-Logic

    Here's the result of my test:

    1. With an attachment file.

    2. Without an attachment file.

    Thank you, I was able to clone the form in order to view how you set up the
    conditional logic
