    Only upload the images/photos in the File storage services integration (ex. Dropbox)

    Asked by Burkhart on July 23, 2015 at 09:18 PM

    We have a file upload field on our forms where the user uploads pictures only. Is there a way to only upload the photos? We don't need the pdf it submits. Just the photos.

    Is there a way to do this with an already established form?

    Thanks,

    B

    Hi Burkhart,

    Thanks for contacting us.

     

    You can restrict the file type that can be uploaded in your File Upload field to photos format only by setting the Extensions setup to photos file extensions (i.e. jpg, jpeg, png, gif). To change/update the Extensions setup of your File Upload field, you can follow the instructions provided below.

    1. Select Field.

    2. Click Extensions in the above menu.

    3. Enter file extensions.

     

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

     

    Regards.

    Sorry. I must not have asked it correctly. When we get our submissions back, (say I have it integrated in Drop Box, for example) It creates 1 PDF with all of the info, then it creates the uploaded files (which are photos). We would like to be able to have ONLY the photos to upload once submissions are done. Is this possible?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to only allow the files to be uploaded in the Dropbox integration. The integration was designed to upload a copy of the PDF submission together with the File uploads.

    To add, this is also true with other integration like Google Drive and Box.net. A PDF submission together with the files will be directly uploaded there. You can check our list of file sharing and storage services that we support here: http://apps.jotform.com/category/file_sharing_and_storage
