    is there any way that you can add a field to the filepicker widget where new parameters can be added to the widget beyond the parameters that you all have made available?

    I think you should tell us what kind of parameters. We can send a request to our developers about it if it's not available. Well, I guess you have already checked it. But what you see in the configuration and field properties are the only options that you can change in the widget.

    I look forward to your reply.

    sure they have capability that allows the jpg and pdf files to be uploaded to AWS and converted from CMYK to RGB on the fly.

    Essentially I want to use jotform to capture the user information but then use file picker to upload the files to the destination. I need the mid-transfer capability that file picker offers. A normal submit button just uploads files it does not "check" them.

    It seems file picker has a lot of options under "Image Transformations"

    I don't think you all have the ability to think about all of their capabilities but if you gave the user the ability to add parameters on the fly -- you just might be able to make the widget so much better. 

    We use jotform for our users to enter photography contests. we log the user info in google docs and in Jotform -- but we have one contest that is HUGE and we get files from around the world -- many files need serious error checking or if there are errors like not being RGB -- we want the system to fix it before they get to us -- so if filepicker can do that via jotform -- i think we'd be golden.

    Thank you for the additional information.

    I can understand your request and I will escalate it as a feature request to our second level, I provide our team with the info you shared us and they will take a look here, I can not give you a time frame nor the release data, but you will be notified via this thread if it's developed.
