    How can i deactivate the "Upload a photo" field after the user entry

    Asked by bhanukaran on August 07, 2013 at 02:30 AM

    Hi Team,

    I have a form and i want to deactivate the "upload the photo" field after the user uploads the picture. We want to have this feature as just in-case if the user tries to change his picture entry, he should not be able to do it.

    The contest that we are running allows users to enter only once. Can this work in jotform where at the individual user level user is restricted to upload the picture only once.

    Kindly suggest.

    Thanks

    Bhanu

    Hi Bhanu,

    To prevent users to submit more than one entry/submission, you need to set Unique Submission. Please take a look at this article for more detailed information: http://www.jotform.me/help/64-How-to-Set-Unique-Submissions-on-a-Form

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.

    Thank you!

    Hi Team,

    Unfortunately, I tried this option but it does not serve my purpose. 

    I am writing again what exactly would be my requirement.

    There is a form with show-hide condition.

    Name, Email id & multiple choice questions. 

    There are 2 rounds in the contest. In the first round I will only ask users to share their email id, name, & answer multiple choice questions.

    After that user gets a submission confirmation with the edit link. 

    Then the second round starts where this time we will inform only selected users to edit their link and attach a picture to an already pre-populated entry and this time it will the same form but the "upload a photo' field will be activated or visible with previously populated text entry.

    In this round, we want users to upload the entry only once. Which means if the user wants to change the picture entry using the same edit link, he should not be allowed. But, this should be only at the individual user level.

    Can we do this in jotform. Please guide.

    Thanks

    Bhanu

    Hi Bhanu,

    There is always a smart way to accomplish the desired functions. Here's a sample form: http://www.jotform.co/form/32235507453854

    The process:

    1. Add both Upload Field and Hidden Field to the form. The upload field is hidden and would only show if the hidden field is filled - this time, the URL Parameter is used and Conditional Logic.

    2. Allow them to fill up the form and submit without the URL Parameter: http://www.jotform.co/form/32235507453854

    3. You should receive an email containing the Edit Function. If you'd like them to edit their submissions and allow them to submit a file or an image, use the URL Parameter: http://submit.jotform.co/form.php?formID=32235507453854s&sid=242143314341436846&mode=edit?showupload=yes. They should be able to see the submit button. If they upload a file, the Upload button will automatically hide. 

    This should work for you. If you need any further details. Let me know.

    Thanks

    I think the explanation is a bit too short. I will come back to you later for the whole detailed explanation. You can cloned the form and see how I've made it. Here's a guide: How to Clone a Form.

    Hi Welvin,

    Thanks, I will await for your detailed explanation. It would be great if you can share it by tomorrow.

    Meanwhile, I will try this logic at my end.

    Thanks
