    Hi - the option "Allow multiple" seems to do sth else.

    So how can I limit the number of uploads with Filepicker to 1 per submission?

    Cheers, Jan

    Hi Jan,

    Sorry but it is not possible with Filepicker Integration as of its current version. The only way to achieve this is to use single file upload tool though uploads will be stored at Jotform server not within Filepicker.

    If there's anything else you need assistance or if you have further concerns, let us know here.

    Have a good day!

    Hi, thanks for your reply.

    Ok, but if it's not possible now what does the "multiple" option mean?

    I read at Filepicker that it is basically supporting this, right?

    Hi Jan,

    Multiple refers to browsing or selecting of files NOT with the number of files allowed per submission.

    To clarify it further, enabling "Multiple" means you can pick multiple files from your computer or from any other source. While if "Multiple" is not enabled, it means you can only browse and select 1 file at a time per browsing session. If you want to browse another file, you have to click the choose file button again.

    I found an article related to maxFiles on Filepicker API. I'm not exactly sure if this can be integrated with Jotform per submission limit since both are two different features. However, I have raised this thread as a feature request. You will be informed here for any updates.

    Thanks!
