    Hi RuthfWestcott,

    Thanks for informing us. After reading your thread, I also have tested the 'Auto Fill feature' with your issue. You're right, now it's not possible to keeping the file at file upload by enabling auto fill setting.

    I have already forwarded your issue to our back-end developer. They'll sure look into it and fix it, if it's possible.

    Let us know if you have further question. Thanks !

    I'm afraid its not possible to auto-fill upload fields, this is because it is assumed that a different file needs to be uploaded each time.

    However, please tell us more about what you want to accomplish and we will suggest additional solutions for you. Thanks !

    I think this is a huge issue if you're building a platform using jotforms. Especially if the form is document intense. I think it's a huge issue.

    As mentioned above, this is because file uploads widget is not included in the auto-fill feature as it is assumed that a new file needs to be uploaded each time.

    You may want to refer to the link below for another method of saving progress on your form:
