    Delete uploaded file

    Asked by raviprashanth83 on May 13, 2014 at 06:07 PM

    One of the project requiremets calls deletion of files, uploaded by the users. Is it possible to do it?

    Also, is there any automated way of doing it? Delete the submission details, and the submitted files, after X days.

    Thanks for reply.

    Hi,

    One of the project requiremets calls deletion of files, uploaded by the users. Is it possible to do it?

    If you only want to delete specific submissions with uploaded files, you have to do it manually. 

    Step:

    1. Go to your My Forms page http://www.jotform.com/myforms/

    2. Select the form in the lists by clicking on the checkbox or form name

    3. Click Submissions button on top

    4. In the forms submissions page  select the specific submission, and then

    5. Delete the submission using the delete button on the upper-right side of the page 

    If the specific submission have uploaded file included, that will also be deleted when you delete the submission

    --

     Also, is there any automated way of doing it? Delete the submission details, and the submitted files, after X days.

    You can also use the Auto Delete Submissions App to do this.

    http://apps.jotform.com/app/auto_delete_submissions

    Although this is auto and instant -- you cannot set after X days.

     

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks!
