Integration to MySQL changing URL link from Uploaded files

    I have a Zapier integration with MySQL 

    When Zapier inserts the data in the table. 

    URL that is being inserted is not the same 

    which is provided by JotForm 




    The perfume.mp3

    Looks like Zapier is removing the whitespace placeholders (%20 O%20) for the upload URL.

    The name of the file is actually Staden- O perfume.mp3

    The spaces in the filename are translated as %20 when the file is uploaded to Jotform - and it looks like the integration may have a problem with this - possibly because %20 may be a system designated characer - either for Zapier or MySQL.

    My test with a similar Zapier integration did not show this behavior - but our settings might vary.

    Please check zapier's task history here:

    Select the integration and find the transaction - expand the details so that you are able to see the URL that was sent - Is it the correct one?

    Similar scenario:

    If the link is correct - then MySQL is changing the link URL by removing the whitespace placeholders (%20)

    If the link is wrong - then we will forward this to our developers for futher advice.

    Looking forward to your response.

    In analyzing the situation, when I access JotForm is I download the
    Submissions, the informed File (Excel) URL is encrypted using the UTF-8
    format for URL.
    and when the Zapier make MySQL Integration with the same url
    is not encrypted

    I've been trying to test the submissions from JotForm and I can't seem to find an issue on our end. May I request from you to please contact Zapier on this matter via
