    I want to be able to get my file uploads into Airtable. I am trying to use an Airtable automation to create the URL (see below) of the file uploads.

    How can I pass over the file name that was uploaded in Jotform so I can make the following URL? I don't see a way for the calculation widget to get just the filename.

    https://jotform.com/uploads/username/FormID/Submission ID/filename.

    Hello!

    After adding the File Upload field to the Form Calculation widget, please click it to turn the box brown:

    1637944818_61a10df2ced96_parseasstrign.g

    This will make it parse as a string and the name of the file should populate the Calculation widget correctly:


    1637944546_61a10ce2a6af1_2.png

    You can then use that field in your Airtable Automation to create the link.

    Let us know how that goes,

    Thank you!
