Alternatively, when this saved template is used to create an online form, the uploads will appear as below (as seen by the client or another third party). The files can be clicked on to viewed or downloaded, but they cannot be deleted, nor can additional files be uploaded by the third party. 

File Sharing

You are also able to just add an upload field to templates, documents and online forms without any associated files. By adding a blank upload term, you can give your clients and other third parties, the ability to upload and share files and images with you via online forms.

Just add the Upload term to your documents and templates as described above.

Note: If requesting clients or other third parties to upload files, we recommend adding upload instructions (an example is shown below) via a free text field.
