    Photo Contest Question

    Asked by countrywalkers on June 27, 2014 at 10:41 AM


    We are working on building out a photo contest for this coming fall. We know we can set up a basic form where users can upload photos, but is there a way to allow people to not only upload photos, but to also share from other social sites ie: facebook, instagram, tumblr?

    Also, for the photos that people upload we want to make it mandatory for them to add a description of that photo-is there a way to connect a text field to a upload field?


    Thanks for your help!

    Hello Sir,

    Thanks for your question.

    Yes it's possible to share your pictures by using our social sharing widget. You can easily search this in our 'Widget' Tab and drag it into your form. See the following picture-

    Please disregard the previous answer.  Such widget will not resolve your requirement.

    However, we do have an App InkFilepicker.io  integration that will indeed let your users to upload files from other resources such as Facebook, Instagram, etc. They can even do this from their Mobiles.
    Just make sure you open an account at the InkFilepicker site.Then look for it under "Wdigets" section, just type part of the name and click on it.


    You can select the desired sites form which you want your users to upload files:


    Do let us know should you have more questions.
