    Hey,


    Was wondering if it's possible to view a file that was uploaded to the file uploader.


    Our form will require users to partially fill out the form and then save it and send the saved link to another user to complete it. However, we need the person who receives the saved copy to be able to view the file that was attached to the file upload widget. I attached a screenshot of an example.


    Please let me know if this is possible, thank you!

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out.

    Please note that the uploaded PDF will be shown as a link in the notification email.

    Here is an example of the notification email:

    1615989897_60520c8946716_

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to show the PDF.

    You can also show the uploaded PDF as an attachment by enabling the Send uploads as Attachments option in the Notification settings:

    Hey,


    Thanks for your help on this!

    Had another question as maybe an alternative.


    Is it possible to setup the file uploader to utilize Microsoft OneDrive or Sharepoint?


    Thanks!

    You can enable the Continue Forms Later fields on your form. This will allow your users to save the form with the uploaded file and send see sharable session link to another user. The other user will be able to download and view the file the first user uploaded.

    Another option is to create an approval workflow form.

    We also have OneDrive integration. Jotform and Sharepoint can be connected with Microsoft Flow.
