    How to add explanatory text to the file being Uploaded in the Form

    Asked by andypenn on October 11, 2015 at 09:17 AM

    how can embed the "20 meg drag and drop file up-loader widget" into my form, as it would appear that this is a stand alone form,

    example on my form people are invited to submit documents , the above widget works well for that , but they also may need to add some explanatory text.

    How can I embed the widget on to my form page so that both documents and text can be submitted at the same time .

    at present switching between the forms auto cancels out the other.

    There is no option to include text/description for the file being uploaded using the Drag & Drop Upload Widget

    What you may want to try instead is add a TextArea field after the widget.

    The end-user can use the TextArea to add comments/remarks about the files uploaded.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
