    how can i remove an uploaded photo on a submission?

    Asked by skyrun on October 15, 2013 at 04:59 PM

    i can edit the submission and replace the photo with another one, but i can't delete it.  should be a 'x' delete button beside the photo when editing (imho).

    pretty important to be able to do since people can upload inappropriate or copyrighted materials...

    I'm afraid that it is not possible to delete already uploaded files while editing a form submission.

    A possible workaround could be to replace the uploaded file while editing the submission, with a generic image from your computer, this will  replace the inappropriate or copyrighted material  with the generic new one.

    hope it helps

    please let us know if you need further assistance

    What I want to know is how to remove or delete an uploaded photo that resides in my UPLOADED PHOTO folder. It's not being used in a form submission, it is just stored somewhere and I'd like to have it removed.

    I just uploaded it to see what it would look like as a background image, but then chose not to use it. Now I would like to delete or remove it from wherever it is being stored.
