    For an example, I have a zip folder containing my products. Is there a way to upload this to the form so that users are able to download it directly?

    Hi,

    You can add the download link to our Free Text HTML field. You can hyperlink it or put the link directly:

    Or, you can use our IMAGE field. Put the download link to "Image Link" and put your download button in the "Image Source":

    Thanks

    Erm that's not what I wanted actually. I knew that already that is why I was wondering if there are any alternatives to that.

    The problem to that method you have suggested is that, the link can be shared to the public which means everyone can have access to the files. How do I prevent this or can I upload the files to my form, then create a unique ID for the users to be used in the form before downloading it?

    Hi,

    To answer your question - you can not.

    You could set a different thank you page for those that should get the links and a different one for those that can not get the links - the same would go with the emails.

    That way you could share the link with them.

    If you add unique ID widget to your jotform, this would be possible to combine within the jotform itself and passed to the link, but you could also use the submission id ( {id} ) to generate less likely to predict link.
