    Hi. I included a quiery on this, along with lots of other folks, to the forum a few months ago, but have been getting so antsy about this that I want to re-contact this way.

    Would you kindly expedite the creation of an auto-submit function? I have a transcription service where people upload their large audio files to me. I created a JotForm and it's ready to go, but I can't use it because of the lack of auto-submit. I forsee all kinds of instances where poeple start uploads of their audio files, get distracted on something else, and don't click the "submit" button after they're uploaded. So the way it is now is a real show-stopper.

    Right now I'm using SendThisFile's upload form, which is auto-submit. But I what I really like about your form is that it uploads directly to DropBox. And it's a good-looking form with a lot of options (except auto-submit).

    And you don't seem to have any competitors for forms that upload directly to DropBox, so you're it as far as places I can turn to.

    Again, please, please, please institute an auto-submit function for file uploads.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you in advance.

    Add my vote too.  I'm using an upload form as part of my check-out process because I like jotform better than the built in methods... but people keep missing the button to submit it.  Wonder if there's a better way to do this.

    Here's an example page
