How can I make a field not show up on submission after auto-filling another form?

    Hey Jotform,

    We are trying to compress the size of our file download. We are aware you guys only offer file upload size limits and cannot provide image compression, we are just trying to figure out possible workarounds.

    Our issue is that once we download the form with the image, the file size is a little too big with pictures, so we were trying to find a workaround.

    I found the way to prepopulate another form, but I was wondering if there was a way to pre-populate the second form with the file upload, and not have the file save on the first form, only the second?

    If this is possible or if their is another workaround please let me know!

    We would just need it to pre-populate the second form with Name and File upload before submission, and stop saving the file upload on the second form.

    Thank you as always!

    Do you want to compress the files in the PDF Document? If yes, you may change the size of the image to Tiny in the PDF Editor's File Upload settings:


    Unfortunately, it is not possible to only pass the uploaded file to another form and not save it to the original Form.

    Let us know if you have further questions.
