    Thank you for contacting us.

    You will need to enable an 'Allow Multiple' option on your upload field. This will switch the Single Upload tool to Multiple Upload that comes with progress bar.

    However, please note that Multiple Upload tool is not designed for large uploads (150-300MB).

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    Could I second that.

    It's a great function on the multiple upload option but is sorely needed on the  single upload. Why?

    It is vital so that users know where they are in the upload process. The thing is with the single upload option ... on an Iphone it lets you take a photo "in the moment" ... the multiple upload option does not allow this ... you have to select pre-taken photos ....you have to already have taken the photo/s.

    So, the single upload function has great workflow value ... but a user is in the dark as to how the photo upload thing is going.

    It makes total sense from a jotform point of view to nurture this brilliant upload feature ... becuase more and more people are taking photos on smartphones ... and to make it as easy as possible for the user is the way to go.

    Can we get a progress bar for the single upload plaese 

    Thanks Mark

    Please post your question in a separate thread. That doesn't seem to relate here.

    Thank you!
