    I need to restrict the file type being uploaded to pdf only

    Asked by mattr545 on March 14, 2014 at 06:32 PM

    My self and a few friends are starting a comic book publishing company. We need the account users to be able to upload their own works in pdf form for publication. There will be a form section asking their name, and info and then a section for a description, then a section about the comic so we know what to rate the comic (think movie rating G, PG, PG-13, R, & M) then we want a section to upload the comic in pdf format. This will keep out viruses and other pesky stuff from our system. Is this possible with your form system? Also is that pricing for the Economy a monthly plan or a 1 time fee?

    Hi Matt,

    Yes, that's possible. Just add a file upload field to your form and set the file upload extensions to pdf only. Check this screenshot to learn how:


    No it is not a one time fee. All paid plans are available for subscriptions, it's either you subscribe monthly, yearly or bi-yearly (2 years). Example, if you will subscribe economy monthly today, you will be charged again every 14th of the month. However, you can cancel your subscription anytime you want.

    Hope this clarifies a bit. Thanks!
