How to Download the Submission Files

Last Update: April 27, 2016

JotForm allows you to create a file upload form. Now how do we download all or partially these files?

To download all uploaded files:

1. Navigate to your "My Forms" page, select the form and click "Submissions".

2. When you scroll down below, you'll see the "Download All Uploads" button just above the grid list.

3. You will then be prompted to download a compressed zip file. All the file uploads will be stored in it.

To partially download your file uploads based on submission dates:

1. In your submissions page, click gear or settings icon. Select "Time Frame" and choose the date range you want. Or you can set a custom time frame.

2. If you choose a custom time frame, you'll see a pop-up window asking you for the start and end date of the submissions you received.

3. After adjusting the "Time Frame" settings, you'll see the grid list showing specific submissions based on the date range you have setup. You will also see now the button stating "Download Uploads in Time Range". 

Please note that the system has a download limit of 250 files or 250 MB in total size. This is where you will need to make partial downloads or per batch.

You now have a copy of your file uploads in a compressed zip file on your local storage.

    Is there a way to download specific uploads? For example, each form has 2 upload buttons for 2 different files; can I download all of one upload to a folder? or must I download all uploads all the time?

    Is there a way that someone can get a download of the submission files in Excel format sent to their email automatically everyday?

    In my form I am asking the person filling it out to upload a photo.

    When I download the photos that have been uploaded, it's hard to tell which photo goes with which submission. I can individually look at each one and match it to the photo shown on the submissions page, but this will take some time. Is there an easier way to track which submission each upload comes from? Thanks!

    The download all submissions button isn't appearing, I have multiple files uploaded with all the forms that have been submitted, how do I download the uploaded files?
