    Importing CSV XML to Jotform with a field for an image url

    Asked by modaeuropea on June 02, 2016 at 05:05 PM


    I have the following question:

    I created a jotform with three products with images, using the options "Basic Field > Add image>Enter url>Use link". I wanted to add more products via CSV, XLM, but when using the import tool, I only get a few fields (columns). There is no field(column) for an image url available in CSV, XLM, even though my form should have three.

    Is there a way to add an image url to a Form using CSV, XML?

    Thank you in advance.

    Seems like it is not possible to import files with this app, I think this is because when you send a file in a submission it is sent to our server and then the given URL for that file is a JotForm link, importing files will not be possible to set a link, since basically files are not being uploaded as they are when they are submitted. 

    Regarding to the image field: 

    This field is not possible to import, since it does not capture any data, it only displays the image in your form, this is why this field is not showing in the import app, the same with the file upload field, it is not shown in the import app.

    If you would like to upload files or images in your form then you will need to do it manually, there is not any other way to do it.
