    Hello Devan Wickline,

    Thanks for reaching out to Jotform Support. Currently, the only workaround available is to show the uploaded file URL on monday.com. When you map the File Upload field while setting up the integration in Jotform, it transfers only the uploaded image URL. Current integration does not allow transferring the actual image. If that’s not exactly what you’re referring to, can you explain a bit more so we can help you better? 

    We are awaiting your reply.

    It wouldn't let me select the jpg file or wav to map to the file box... unless it was mapped to a text box - but then it's just text, not a link and if you put it in the address bar then it says the link is broken.

    Also it allowed me to map like 5 fields then went gray why is that?


    I have a form I am trying to build and it needs to pull info from 2 different boards. is this possible?
    I've pulled the info from client board for the client details but I also need o the next page the store addresses that are linked to the Client board or does this need to be done manually?


    In the perfect world it would be really great to have a button in Monday connected to the form template and pull the fields together then populate the completed for in another file cell... whats the best way to accomplish this? IE I need them to sign a release with their customer info on it as well as the store info.

    Im up for any great ideas on how to make this work.

    Similar thing with pulling client info and costs from our budget column to make up a billing gateway to stripe to set up the clients reoccurring billing at the bottom of the contract they sign.

    Hello Devan,

    I assume this is the form you're referring to, right? Trade Show Registration

    If so, let me answer your questions one by one in the order they were asked.

    It wouldn't let me select the jpg file or wav to map to the file box... unless it was mapped to a text box - but then it's just text, not a link and if you put it in the address bar then it says the link is broken.

    Since you are using a TAKE PHOTO widget, it only returns a metadata of the image instead of a URL.

    A workaround would be to use our regular file upload field. It works the same as the Take Photo widget when the form is accessed on mobile:

    1651105444_6269dea4e33b5_

    This will return a URL of the file when you mapped it to Monday.

    Also it allowed me to map like 5 fields then went gray why is that?

    This depends on the number of fields you have in Monday and in the form. Can you share a screenshot of it? Right now, I can see more than 5 fields in your form integration:

    I have moved the last few questions to separate tickets. I will answer them shortly.

    Ok great thanks, I'll adjust that to a file upload instead. Is there any work around to import the wav file?

    How can I map first name and last name to different fields? or will it throw both in one box? (Ideally Id like them to map to their own boxes.

    -------
    The field mapping question was in regards to a form fill for ISI - I need to map across two boards for all of the info can I do that with Jot form? I hope so otherwise I'll have to find another solution.

    Hello Devan,

    When you add a regular file upload field, your users will be able to upload wav file in the form.

    If you want to map the first name and last name with separate fields, you need to add short text entry field for first name & last name in form.

    On your last question related to field mapping, do you mean to say that you want to send the data to two different boards? Yes, it is possible. When you add Monday.com integration in the form and complete the field mapping, you can add another action in the integration to send the data to another board as shown in the screencast below:
