Progress bar or text on upload form?

    Asked on September 02, 2010 at 11:44 AM

    Is it possible to add a progress bar or some "Your file is uploading..." text to a form that's triggered when the Submit button is clicked? I'm testing a video upload form now and, for example, it takes between 15 and 20 seconds to upload a 10.8 MB video, which could leave some users wondering what's going on. Thanks!

    I added this to our suggestions list. I agree with you I think this is needed on form that will get large file uploads.

    Hi morgan09lal,

    Thank you for following this up. The file upload progress indicator is already in place.

    Please try it and let us know if it works for you or not. Thank you for using JotForm!

    I cannot get the progress bar to show, it only shows in the browser status bar (google chrome).

    Is there a setting I am missing?

    Hello osouthgate,

    This is possible when you convert your file upload field to allow multiple files.

    To do this, edit your form and select the file upload field. go to properties tab and click Allow Multiple to turn it on.

    Hope this helps.
