    Hey. I need to add an upload button in my form for the weekly mobile photography contests that I hold. I need people to upload their files through their mobile phones with a brief description. Please help me with that. Also, I'd like to know if that's possible on Jotform?

    Hello Mark,

    You need to go to the form that you would like to add the File Upload field and click on "Add Question", and select "File Upload" from the question type drop down menu. But in order to get the users upload multiple files, you are going to have to add different upload fields manually on Google Forms. Jotform has a built-in multiple upload field which I believe would be useful in your case.

    You can also utilize the widgets supported on Jotform such as; Image Upload Preview, Drag and Drop Upload, Cloudless File Uploader, Transloadit, Uploadcare File Uploader and Infusionsoft Upload. Each upload platform offers some added/unique features so you can check them out and use the one that fits your needs.

    Your user-base will use your form on their mobile devices, Jotform is Mobile Responsive, which means your form will be optimized for your users to have the best experience. Google Forms does not have that feature, please make sure to check out why Jotform is the best Google forms alternative with our many templates for all kinds of uses and advanced features.

    In order to add an upload field to your form, please follow the following steps:

    1- The easiest way to allow your users to upload a file to your form is by adding a File Upload Field to your form.


    2- To allow multiple files to be uploaded by users you can click the FILE UPLOAD field to highlight it then click the GEAR icon to open its properties. Secondly, go to the MULTIPLE tab then toggle MULTIPLE FILES to ON and then you will be all set.
