    The reason I am using Jotform is because you have developed the code so that users can upload files right to my DropBox. However, I have no need, nor do I want my files to be stored at Jotform.

    What is my pest option

    From other reading that I've done, however, the auto delete submissions only removes the submission data NOT uploaded files. Is this correct?

    Hi,

     

    The uploaded file that is included in the submission will also be deleted when the submission is deleted. Deleting the submission will delete data and the uploaded file attached to the submission.

     

    Do let us know if you have any further question.
    Regards.

    I have noted in the response dated October 02, 2015 at 12:51 AM by Chriistian that the auto delete submissions app is supposed to delete the files and the submission. However, in my testing that does not appear to be the case. The submissions are deleting, but the files are not. Is there a timing issue in which the files are deleted somewhat later?
