    You can have the link to the image appear on the Thank You page by choosing Thank You message in the Thank You Page Wizard and then inserting the tag for the upload image field (found in the form's notification in the "Compose Email" section). In your current upload form, that tag is {IMG:1}

    By altering the tag, you can have the image itself appear in the Thank You message. This thread shows the results one of our users got by utilizing altered image tags. So, you might have your thank you message composed like this.

    Is this the sort of idea you had in mind?

    Hi Canvasp,

    Sorry for the inconvenience, If you can switch back your multiple file upload tool into single file upload that would work better. Inshort, using this tag {IMG:1} wouldn't work on Multi-Upload Tool. I have also raised this issue to our development team so they can take a look on this matter. They will reply to this thread once they come up with solution. Thank you for your patience and have a great day!

    Hi idarktech

    Thanks for your reply.
    I have another question. I am thinking to let my users to be able to remove their uploaded file by clicking a DELETE button. File must be deleted from the submission. Is this possible to implement?

    thanks in advance.

    Canvasp,

    Thank you for bringing this idea, I wish we can grant your request, but unfortunately, our  developers current workload is extremely heavy that I don't think they can still accommodate such a request.

    Furthermore, we actually have no idea what our developers' priorities are, so we are very sorry if we can't give you further words about your request.

    We will just let you know or update this thread once the feature is up. Thank you so much for understanding.

    Hi idarktech

    Thanks for your help.

    Instead of remove individual file from a submission, is it possible to delete the entire submission itself?

    Canvasp,

     

    I have already raised this issue to our  developers for further clarification on whether this is possible or not. Also, I couldn't assure if this feature will be added to their list as they are always busy, but please take note that we will not stop enhancing JotForm features. Your patience and understanding to this matter are highly appreciated.

    Gracias,

    I've made some tests on the upload form, I uploaded 2 different images for each upload button. Upon checking the Submissions section the four files were saved and uploaded.



    May we know what browser did you use when you made the submissions? Probably your browser does not have JavaScript enabled, that is why the multiple upload script is not working.

    To make sure that javascript is enabled, please do the following:

    For IE browsers:

    1. Open Internet Explorer, click the "Tool" button in the menu bar,
    select the "Internet Options" button and then select the "Security" tab.

    2. Select the "Internet" area, select "Custom Level" and go to the
     "Security Settings - Internet Zone" box.

    3. Click the checkbox to enable "Active Scripting" under the Scripting
    section and then click the OK button to apply the settings. Restart your
    browser when finished to apply the settings and enable JavaScript.

    To enable JavaScript in Opera

    1.  Press Ctrl + F12 to bring up the Preferences window. Alternatively, you
    can just click the menu toolbar then go to Settings > Preferences

    2.  Go to Advanced tab, choose Content on the menu to the left then tick
    the Enable JavaScript checkbox

    3.  Click OK to save your preferences.


    For Mozilla Firefox users:

    1. At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Tools menu and select Options.
    2. In the OptionsPreferences window, select the Content panel.
    3. Tick the box for 'Enable JavaScript'.
    4. Click 'Ok'

    Let us know if this works.

    Cheers!
