Upload images all at once is not working

    Asked on January 27, 2015 at 03:55 PM

    Having to upload each image gets tedious when the multiple images are involved.

    The previous ability to upload them all at once by clicking submit is what sold me on JotForm in first place.

    If unable to make this a selectable option then can you release the previous version in addition to the current version?

    Or is it possible to remove the upload prompts via CSS (or some other method) for my specific application?

    Hi snowdpd,

    We have various options that can been used on your form to upload files.

    Your form currently has our Image Upload Preview widget, that widget allows your users to preview the image on the form before confirming the upload.

    Using our default upload field, the files will be uploaded as they are selected, this however does not provide a preview of the image.

    We also have our Drag and Drop widget that allows multiple files to be added, and then upload would be selected once and all the files will be uploaded.

    You can view this form that has all three upload options: http://form.jotform.co/form/50266364848867? 

    I hope this helps, please inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thank you.

    That is unacceptable.

    The feature was working on January 26 and now January 27 it does not work.

    This feature was disabled to help another user specific application. 

    I need this feature. I based my entire form around it. It worked before there is no reason it shouldn't work now.

    Change the widget back to the version on January 26. Or provide it as an additional version for users that want this featue.

    I was able to check the Image Upload Preview widget a while ago and I see the problem that you are having, adding an extra step of clicking "Upload Image" button before one proceeds seems to be not a common practice, especially the images are already showing as a preview, making us think that the image is already uploaded.

    I've given my feedback on this to the development team directly and they should already be aware of this. We'll update you immediately when we hear any news. And I do apologize for the inconvenience that this might have caused you.

    Kind regards.
