    How to upload ICS extension files?

    Asked by FSRINC1 on September 19, 2014 at 01:29 PM

    Was there ever an answer to this?  There is only an Image upload button and no matter what I do I can't upload an ICS.  I've been trying to figure out Welvin's reply but I can't make it work.  (I am new to JotForm) This is vital to my form.

    Thanks for any advice or help!

    I see there is only one jotform(http://www.jotform.us/form/42614162729152) in your account, which does not have an Upload field yet, add the Upload field firstly from Form Tools tab, then in order to allow ICS files to be uploaded, you need to click on Extensions and add the ICS one, as shown in the image:

    Finally, you can try uploading a ICS file, let us know what happens, we will be glad to assist you.

    I thought the upload field was for users of the form to upload a file.  If I add the upload field, add ics as an allowed extension, then upload the file, the users of the form will be able to see that file and download or open it?

    I did start a new thread after I felt I wrongly hijacked the other person’s thread.

    The suggestions I received for adding it to the Thank You is the way I went.
    I also decided to use my corporate website to host the form with embed code and added another link there.

    would request that you consider adding a file download functionality directly to the forms in a future enhancement.

    Thanks for your support.  My form is up and I have added a paid subscription.  I can’t to work with you more.

    It sounds like everything is pretty much kosher now and I'm glad to see the thank you method worked out for you in that case. 

    We also greatly appreciate your subscription purchase - thank you! 

    Additionally, you did mention another topic about file download functionality so I've moved that to a new thread which you can find here.

    Feel free to talk to us more about that there or by opening a new thread topic if you need more help.
