When uploading a project file, a Maximum File Size Exceeded error displays and you are not able to submit your project. This happens if your project file is larger than allowed.
Is there a way to setup multiple filesize limits based on file types:
For example, limiting any jpeg/jpg files to 5MB while png, pdf to 1MB, etc?...
Hi! I have a cloud service which is p-cloud, how can I use this to save uploaded files via jotform? Can it be done?
Our Jotforms are stating the for is over quota.
"the form has exceeded its allocated quota"
I have the file upload field in the body of the email but when I click on the link(s) I am getting a 404 error.
I have turned the "Limit File Size" off, but on the submission form I am getting image links and the message "Attachments: Because the total size is more than 5MB the uploads are not attached."
If the files uploaded are images... is there any way to downgrade the resolution so it will fit to these limitations automatically?
i have changed the max file size to i gb but its not getting refleted under teh upload button, it still shows 300 mb
The Business Price says I have a storage of 1 TB. Why does it say here individual max file size is1GB ?? How can I allow users to upload file of 10GB?
Thanks for your support!
Is there a concern about file attachments being too big to send via Gmail? Example; I have email notifications set so that if a user uploads one or more files on my form, I get those attached to my email notification. If the files are too large to go through Gmail's restrictions, I won't get the notification.
Any way around this?
Location Map pdf Exceeds 1 MB, Try with a Lesser Sized File
I'm having problems opening the uploaded links on all my computers. I have the maximum size as 1048576 KB. Can you please help ASAP. I have 2 different offices and are trying to access the uploads on different computers.
Can I have files loaded ONLY to Google Drive as that is the final destination and I don't need storage on both Jotform and GDrive?
if i turn the limit size off can they upload whatever they want?
Thank you so much for this!

i want to rechanging the file size limit
1. I have a paid DropBox account (Pro) so have plenty of space. So reading from these points am I still limited to 300mb for files to go to my Dropbox folder from the upload button on a form?
2. Also is there anyway to stop the videos from being stored in my jotform account (mirrored). Just simply uploaded to Dropbox? I don't want to fill up my account in Jotform or the files count against me.
i have problem to upload the files
I have the same issue with 400MB files on 22.6mb/s upload connection. Anything under is working. Most our media from our clients is 600-900mbs. Using the individual upload tool is not an option since they can have anywhere from 10-30 files to up. I notice you made reference to the file picker widget from File stack, why is this not an option anymore? Can I use their picker api with your form by setting an account directly with them?
ok, i found another thread, it looks like it should support changing upload file size in free account, but its not.
i changed to 5000, but its coming back to 1024?????
do i have to have paid account to change file size? i just open free account, still creating page, testing form and i wanted to change upload file size to 5 mb but it will not allow me to do that, going back to default value..
is it ok?
I have a free account. I want to change my upload file size to be more than 1 MB, which is what is now. I know there is a limit so I'll change it to 200 MB, if I can. Problem is I type in a KB value and save it and it just still says that the upload file size limit is 1 MB.
I have a free acount.
How increase de limit of upload.
I've tried the solution to increase the upload to 5000 Kb but did not work, it is to have free account?
Name of softwareplease
As a free account user, how can i increase email limit from 5 to larger figure? I mean increasing the email limit under embeded form
I've purchased more space for my gmail total 100GB but I am still not able to upload video file more than 100mb. How can I change it so that I can upload file more than 100mb to my google drive? Thanks
How do I disable uploading files to Jotform (since I am able to use my Google Drive / Dropbox space) ?
Do the upload limits apply to each submission, each form, or to the entire account which would contain a number of different forms, some of which might require uploads?
Also, I am unable to access the "Max File Size" in a toolbar as shown in your screen shot.
Copy is an awesome alternative that doesn't have file size limits. It is a service offered by Barracuda Networks and gives an extra 5GB free space for each referral. Sign up with my referral and get 20GB to start with instead of 15GB.
What is the Size limit for Box?
Is there any plan to increase the min size to 2gb? For video uploads.
why dropbox limit the max file size, when DriveHQ has no such limit.
So, does linking your cloud storage avoid the Jotform upload limits? So, if I am limited to 100mb (or whatever ) by my Jotform Starter account, can I link Dropbox or GDrive to provide me -more- upload space?
how about for google drive? I can't upload a 400MB file :/
Why is that?
l have done all that it says
Given URL is not allowed by the Application configuration.

If you can create Facebook button (direct like to specific page)
At this stage - "Select the type of information you would like to retrieve." There are no labels to see what checkboxes we are selecting.
I so loved it!
Uhmmm no offense, but none of your buttons work. OUCH!
Thanks a lot!
Am I missing something? I followed the steps, but when I try to log in, I get "Given URL is not allowed by the Application configuration"
What am I doing wrong? I've made plenty of applications on FB, btu can't get this to work. Help?
very good :) thanks
Gostei muito da iniciativa do Jotform. Vocês estão de parabéns! Sempre usei o jotform e nunca me quexei de nada.
please help me hook this site's jot form to facebook
I made a Facebook integration form and embedded in iFrame to display it on my own domain. As well as browsers, both iOS and Android platforms can function without any problem. What a great experience!
I love Jotform!
hi nee help what to do if my form reach its qouta?thnks
I like this, it prevents the customers from repetitive data entry, I have one query though, does this auto fill query entry fields in my original form, i.e by clicking sign in with Facebook the data is immediately transferred on to relevant fields in my form, would be nifty to have that, and interestingly, I saw the new icon prior to the popup, it does sit there, no close option, but well I have given feedback and I hope it does not make the jotform staff grumpy, last time I asked a simple question, I got a rather cross response...
Stop preventing me from doing my job with pop-up windows. Thanks
Then in case the people don't have a Facebook account or lazy to login. Then the people don't want to fill in our form anymore and we can't work..
This is such a great new field
Jot Form is still by far the best
form builder i've ever seen.
And i've looked.
This is amazing, you guys ROCK!!!!
How'd the heck did another form builder get bought out for 36 million from survey monkey when it should of been you guys get bought out for 72 million.
What about users who complete the form who are not part of Facebook? Can we have a separate Submit button on the same form?
I just love you guys for always making our life easier :) Jot Team, you folks rock!
wow! gonna try now!
Will users have to authorize access for each form I create?
very cool. i will try this!
Sounds great, though I think it is not very useful for our niche at where we offer placement in our Cat book publications, since most FB members have accounts for their pets with age and data of pet rather of the human owner... lol.
Goood Good Good. I will try this.
I love this idea! But I tried to create a form and your pagelinks are not currently working. Help!
As always, nice work Jotform.
