You can now add multiple file attachment fields to your forms to collect files from respondents. Almost all file formats are supported for upload including audio and video (executable and other such file types are not allowed). All files are virus scanned by the service.
You can add field restrictions that force respondents to upload files less than a certain size, upload multiple files and/or only upload certain file formats.
All of the data and files collected are acccessible from the View reponse tab.
Files from multiple respondents can be downloaded together within a single zip file by the author. When downloading, the author has the option of prefixing a field value to the filenames so they know which respondent submitted a file.
Attachments is available to both free and paid users, however, the maximum file size of all files submitted by one respondent is 100KB for free users and 20MB for paid users. There is no limit on the amount of overall file storage for a free or paid users.
Example Use Cases
The email notifications only list the filenames and provide a general link back to the response file. Providing the actual attachment (or more likely a direct link to an attachment) is a very good idea. Will consider that for a future release.
Thanks for your feedback!
Can you upload a file to a submission on the back end? In the free version, it looks like you can upload an additional file if the user already submitted one, but it didn't give that option if the user submission didn't include a file upload.
Yes you sure can.
Right click in the cell corresponding to the attachment field in the View Responses response table and choose "Insert File" (also in the "Insert" menu). The column must correspond to an attachment type field or you will not see the "Insert File" option.
