Request for the ability to auto-delete uploaded filesAsked by abteilung on March 12, 2015 at 03:24 PM
Hy, same here as mrpicketts: all files are still stored on jotform - even if they are transmitted to dropbox or deleted in dropbox. There is no possibility to have an auto-delete of submissions on jotform-servers. If you don't delete them manually, they will stay there forever.
We have a paid plan, so there is no need to limit us in choosing our own storage solution. please fix this - thanks!

This is a re-post of a comment on Upload to Dropbox with JotForm
The autodelete submissions app should be able to handle this for you:
It will automatically delete your submissions from your JotForm account when they are received.
Let us know if this is not what you were looking for and we will be happy to assist you further.
thanks for your answer. but as mentioned in the thread I posted above, the auto delete only works for submissions - not the files. they are still there and remain there until world's end. sorry for being sarcastic but I don't understand why it is made so difficult to delete user submitted files...
I've attached a feature request to this thread so our developers can consider adding the posibility to auto-delete submitted files too.
Please note that this request shall be evaluated in terms of its feasibility and if it gets approved and implemented you'll be notified here.
