    How do I download files that are uploaded to a form?

    Asked by GeoffMacumbergmailcom on February 27, 2014 at 06:42 PM

    My business partner and I have created some forms on jotform and in a couple of them our clients can upload files. I have tried a number of different ways to download these files but it doesn't work for me. I have tried using "curl GET..." but all I get is some HTML.

    I need a method that can utilize curl.

    Hello GeoffMacumbergmailcom,

    There are multiple options available in JotForm to download the uploads:

    1. Submission page: The submission page will display the link to download url and clicking on them will download the file.

    2. FTP: You can enable FTP in your form's submission which will forward those submitted files directly into your own FTP server. The following guide should help you:  https://www.jotform.com/help/177-How-to-Enable-FTP-on-Form-Submissions

    3. Dropbox Integrations: You can integrate your form with dropbox to directly receive uploads to your Dropbox account in no time. The following guide should help you :  https://www.jotform.com/help/77-Upload-to-Dropbox-with-JotForm

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
