    Remove filename link of file uploaded in the submission

    Asked by landkshaw on August 07, 2016 at 05:04 PM

    Hi,

    When using the file upload option, the link to the uploaded file is displayed. I do not want to display the filename. I only want to see the uploaded files in the submission. Is this possible?

    If you were referring to the file link of the uploaded file in the email, you can exclude it in the email message by removing the file upload email field in email message template of the form.

    Example:

    Thank you for the clarifcation. I see that you were referring to the PDF submission output.

    Unfortunately even if you customized the PDF report using the PDF Designer, the only option is to totally remove the upload field in the report.

    So this will include both the uploadef file(image) and the link to the file itself removed.

    An alternative way you may want to try is using the IMG tag on the uploaded image link in the email template.

    In this format {IMG:field_id}

    Example:

    In the email message, the uploaded image will appear as embedded on the message and not a link.

    I also suggest correcting the issue on your upload fields label names. I noticed that they were empty/blank on the form. You should not leave blank or remove them.

    If you want to hide the label names you can use CSS code to hide them instead.

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

    Thank you very much. I made have to touch base again to figure out how to use CSS to hide labels. I know how to change the appearance of fields but haven't explored hiding any. Thanks again!

    You can use the advace CSS editor to hide the field label name without removing in actual.

    Check this video guide I created;

     

    Thanks.
