    Upload to dropbox

    Asked by Simon Chilton on May 08, 2013 at 05:07 AM

    Hi. I'm looking for a way to offer clients the ability to upload up to 1GB files via my website. My server has a 64MB file upload limit. I'm therfore looking to upload directly to something like dropbox rather than to my web server. Is that possible?

    Hello Simon,

    Are you pertaining to JotForm Server? Unfortunately, No. This feature is not possible. Because the file must first be uploaded to JotForm servers. Then a process transfers these files to Dropbox.

    Feel free to let us know if you have further questions or inquiry and we'll be glad to help out.

    Thank you!

    Hi Simon,

    Our Dropbox API only supports 300MB per transfer. You may consider Google Drive instead. But since our Free Accounts only have 100MB space limit, you may need to upgrade your account to Economy or Professional Package.

    1GB is a large file. Our server may delay the processes. How about if you upload that one using Rapidshare? Mediafire? And just ask your client to send you the download link via the form?
