    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?

     

    the form : http://www.jotformeu.com/form/42462146356353

    Hi,

    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:

    If this is not what you were looking for, please let us know and we will be happy to assist you further.

    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:
