Integrate with Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon S3, and Microsoft OneDrive
Storage Integrations

We've built integrations with five leading cloud storage services: Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon S3, and Microsoft OneDrive. These integrations let you send file uploads directly to your cloud storage account. All five companies offer free and paid plans, so take advantage of the extra online storage and use these integrations. The files you send over are not counted towards your Formstack storage limit.

Please note, you must have available storage in your cloud storage account in order for the files to be successfully transferred. In general, you are able to upload a maximum of 25 MB of data per form and a maximum of 20 file upload fields from a form.

How it works
How It Works
  • Step 1: To collect uploads, just drag and drop the File Upload field onto your form. Easily gather Word docs, PDFs, images, GIFs, music, and much more.
  • Step 2: Customize the file types your form will accept, add field names to the uploaded file name, and decide whether you want to receive uploads via email.
  • Step 3: Connect your form to one of our cloud storage integrations to get extra storage space. Otherwise, your uploads will be stored in our secure database.
