Images used on the forms: Upload a lot of files at once instead of one by one

    Asked on April 21, 2013 at 09:45 AM

    It is past me and my wasted time, but i wanted to know for future use and for others to know as well, if there is a way to bulk upload my images to jotform folder to be used for building various forms. I could not see or find any such tool, and i had only 37 pics for this form, but the process could be made much simpler and faster if i did not have to upload them one at a time. i understand i had to create the fields one at a time, but why not able to select all my photos and click upload once, then just one by one create fields and select them out of the folder, not having to wait 10-15 seconds each time in between. those are really annoying for busy people who have a lot on their plate. a process that can be done in background with 10 seconds total action time spent, ends up taking 10 minutes totally unnecessarily. now imagine 100 pics or something along those lines... different sizes, for different versions of the forms, etc...

    please consider adding this feature somewhere down on the bottom of your development list so at least it gets done sometime.

    you see, all of these little things make jotform appear almost as a whiz kid! genius and incredibly potent for the job, yet just a "kid" and kind of lacking when it comes to certain features or behaviors (copy/duplicate of rules only, or segments of a form at once, other bugs i have reported) which may be fine for most of your users but a tiny fraction who happen to be power users and really like your platform's abilities for the power user aspect of it and yet it is such a turn off to have to deal with needlessly tedious work in 2013 online. I mean, sure I've been spoiled here by not really having to code anything everytime i need a form, and i get the purpose, but with just a little more effort overall and fixing these bugs or offering these power features, your platform could go A LONG LONG WAY to become base of many simple e-commerce sites... look i have used too many website template systems to believe anything any of them says about their ecommerce system, you either need to pay a lot through a cart system or install on server which aint possible with most template cms systems. and jotform right now is actually going to play that role for us, become our main business tool turning our website from informational only to a full blown or at least enough of an ecommerce system... say at a tiny faction of the cost of anything else capable of providing checkouts for rental business... just sayin

    keep up the good work!

    Thanks for your inputs and comments. The reported bugs of other threads have been escalated into a ticket

    On regards to the ability to save your uploaded images and have them ready for future forms, this is not a bug, it is rather a feature we don't provide and I don't any other form builder provide. I

    At any rate, I have forwarded in a ticket your feature request be added to our list . Hopefully if our developers see an increasing number of people asking for the same feature, they might prioritize this with a higher level.

    Kind regards

    i think you entirely missed my point. this was a feature request, correct. and it was not about saving uploaded images for future forms. it was about me knowing if in future forms i had to upload a lot of pics, if there is a way to upload them at once to that temp forlder for that form, instead of uploading them one at a time.

    Don't get me wrong, just making sure the ticket sent is sent for the correct feature request. I do appreciate all of you and your teams round the clock efforts!

    Yes, she completely missed your point, because we already have this feature. When you add an image field you can use an image from images used in the other forms in the past.


    So, what you are requesting is that we should have an option to upload multiple images on this page, instead of one by one:






    I opened a feature request ticket about this.
