    Unfortunately, we do not have a user guide video for the File Downloader App. So, I will not be able to provide you one at the moment.

    As an alternative, I extracted the instruction guide from the App page. so you can at least easily use it here.

    Here it is then.

    (1) First you need to download and install Ruby on the Machine you are going to use this App on.

    You can read the Ruby installation documentation here.


    This is the Ruby Installer

    (2) Once you have ruby fully installed on your machine you can then download the rb files we have for this app shown on our github link when you get this app.

    Link to the RB files in JotForm Github


    (3) At this point will need to have these files within a folder of it's on on your computer.

    (4) Finally, you can launch Windows/Linux/Mac terminal, go to the folder with scripts, and enter this command to run the downloader script:

    ruby downloadUploadedFiles.rb {apiKey} {formID}


    Let us know if you encounter any difficulty with this guide.
