    How do you get links to uploaded files in the email?

    Asked by agmckenna on August 21, 2013 at 06:00 AM

    I'm trying to get a file to be uploaded, with a LINK included in the EMAIL.

    I've tried both the jotform server and drop box and the files go to the server/db OK, but I can only see them if I go looking for them.

    The email doesn't not indicate whether the customer has sent attachments or not.

    I hope that makes sense!

    When someone uploads a file to you, you can get them in the email alerts.

    You just need to setup this up into the email body of your email notification

    For example on this test form  , the name of the tag is {sendUs} ,   because I named the upload field as "Send us your Image " 

    So it should display automatically. However, you can add the IMG prefix like  {IMG:sendUs} into the email body alert  (jut click the Form Fields list, second option for "send us your image")


    And this is the final result into my gmail inbox

    Thanks for that, someone else had set it up for me and that was missing.
