    I am using a google sheet to collect responses. I have a fole upload question. Users are uploading images. The google sheet captures the file link - but this is a download link and not am embeddable file, hence I cannot embed my images..


    Any help?

    I am not sure if I understand your query correctly. Do you mean to display the images for the file upload field in the Google Sheets instead of link? If so, unfortunately, it is not possible to display the image in the integrated Google sheet. 

    If you are referring to something different, please let us know. We will be happy to assist.

    Hi Kiran,


    My user fills the form. He uploads an image file. I get the image file link nicely in a Google sheet where i collect my responses. Now, when I click on the image link, it downloads the file and does not display it in the browser. Probably has to do with a MIME type not set to image/ ... Any chance to change this?


    Best,

    D

    The Google Sheets integration is using Hyperlink function for the link in the spreadsheet. I have tried using the Image function on a different cell which didn't work. I am not sure if this can be implemented from our end to display the image on the browser from the spreadsheet. Let me forward this thread to our backend team for evaluation. We cannot guarantee that the feature shall be implemented or cannot provide any ETA at this moment. If there is any update, you'll be posted here.

    Thanks!
