    How can I display links in the Submission Views apps?

    Asked by michelera on September 04, 2014 at 12:08 PM

    Hello, I've made a script for the submission views.

    In the form, users have to upload a file (a .pdf), but the Submission Views app turns my file in a way to display it as an image and not as a simple link.

    <img style="width:100%;" alt="" src="//www.jotform.com/uploads/michelera/42462146356353/285644648973488876/nameofmypdf.pdf"></img>

    How can I display it as a link?

    I am not sure I am understanding what you are trying to do.  If you would like your uploaded files to display differently, you can change it from showing a download link to showing the actual file in the settings for the file upload field:

    Hello David,


    Thank you for your answer.

    It's look like this setting should be the one, but unfortunately, it doesn't work.

    I've decided to display only image as I can't get  a link to the files uploaded.

    Maybe there is a workaround.

    I added a Form Calculation widget and linked to one of the upload fields. I've set it as text:

    Then in the View Submissions app you can edit it so that it creates manually the uploaded url:


    You can see an example here:
