    File upload saved location - is it possible to set absolute location?

    Asked by rebirthdesign on November 15, 2013 at 03:36 AM

    I'm working with a cloud integration service.  Everything is working like a charm apart from the file that is uploaded.  I believe this is mainly because the saved location for the file is not absolute.

    This appears to be the file location:




    The form is only passing the imagename.png whereas I've figured out the uploads/username/uniqueID.


    With each file upload though there is a different random number.  Is there any way to make this unique so that I can push the uploaded image and sync with my other cloud app?  Another work around that I'm not seeing?

    If you use a file sharing integration app on the form, you can then dictate the upload location.

    You can find the available file sharing integration apps here http://apps.jotform.com/category/file_sharing_and_storage

    You can also integrate the form upload field to use FTP.
    Review this guide on how to  How-to-Enable-FTP-on-Form-Submissions

    Using FTP, you can set the uploaded files to your file server.
