Uploading files with a HTML form that uses FormBackend is really simple. The first thing you need to do, is to make sure the
<form ..> tag
enctype="multipart/form-data" attribute in it. That instructs the browsers that files will be submitted via the form.
<form action="https://www.formbackend.com/f/s0z9b8rz" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data"> <label for="name">Name</label> <input type="text" id="name" name="name"> <label for="my_file">My File</label> <input type="file" id="my_file" name="my_file"> <input type="submit" value="Upload File" name="submit"> </form>
The file will be sent to FormBackend together with the value of the name field. In FormBackend when viewing the submission, you’ll see a link to the attached file which you can go ahead and download.
If you opt in to receive an email when someone submits your form, you can turn on a setting to receive the uploaded files as an attachment in the email that is sent to you. Without this setting, we send you a link from where you can download the file.
