    How to add a file download link to the form

    Asked by KUPSL on July 28, 2014 at 02:27 PM

    Not sure if this feature is available and I missed it...

    It would be very beneficial to many of my forms if *I* could upload 1-2 documents (PDF, doc/docx, xls/xlsx, pub, txt, jpg, png, etc) and have it available for *download* from my users. 

    Maybe something could be integrated with Dropbox.com if someone needs to use "a lot" of space? Then it would be on Dropbox... (or at least that is how I assume it would work.) Or maybe options for integration with Dropbox, Google Drive, and some other popular cloud storage place.

    Thank you in advance.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Let me please inform you, that we have a Text field that can accept HTML content (links, images, styled text, etc.). For example, you can share a file on some cloud service, then copy its link and add the link to the Text field on your form.

    In case you need to accept files from your users and upload them to the cloud services, there are available integrations.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.
