1. Upload Spaces Increased 10x for All Users

Great news for all JotForm users! After our recent switch to Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3),
our bill for keeping uploaded files has decreased dramatically.

We also spend considerably less amount of time with managing servers and storage for uploads.
We wanted to pass these savings back to you. That’s why, we have increased limits for all users!

Account Before After
Free 10 MB 100 MB
Premium 1 GB 10 GB
Professional 100 GB 1 TB

2. Maximum Upload Size Limit Increased to 1GB

You have spoken and we have heard! File upload limit per submission is increased to 1GB.
Now, you can use JotForm to get very large files from your clients!

3. Dropbox Integration with Your Forms

We’re happy to announce that it is now possible to connect your JotForm forms with your
Dropbox account. You can access your uploaded files instantly on your computer or mobile phone.

We are big fans of Dropbox. It is a great way to share your files among many different computers
and mobile devices. Since the files will be downloaded to your computer on the background, you will
be able to access them offline as well. Learn more »

4. Multiple File Uploads

We’re excited to announce new features that make it is easy to upload multiple files on your forms.
Previously, you had to add many upload fields to your form to get files from your users. Now, you can
convert your existing upload fields to let users send multiple files at once. Learn more »

5. Drag and Drop File Uploads

Select files on your computer and drag & drop them on the form! This feature is only available on
the modern browsers. However, if a browser does not support it, your users will still be able to
upload multiple files by selecting them. Learn more »

6. Upload Files while Filling a Form

While your users are completing a form, their files can be uploaded on the background. Save your users’
some time and increase your form completion rates. Learn more »

7. Progress Bar on File Uploads

Waiting for large files to upload can be a nightmare, especially if you don’t see any indication of
progress. That’s why we implemented a cool progress bar. Learn more »

8. FTP Integration with your Forms

Our goal has always been to make things easier and quicker for our users. Many JotForm users are
web site owners and they use JotForm to collect files from their visitors and clients. For example,
they do design contests or they have their clients upload a company logo with their submission.
They then have to manually upload these files back to their web site.

This is a time consuming task and it has to be done manually. You can now automate this! All you need
to do is to enable FTP integration on the Submissions page.
