File Uploads and Storage

Create and customize file upload forms to collect and store documents like resumes, cover letters, photos, and more.

Features

Toss a File Upload field on any Formstack form to start collecting files from customers, job applicants, and other visitors. Our File Upload field supports a large selection of file types, including image files, GIFs, Word documents, PDFs, music files, and much more.

Customize this basic File Upload form template to get started and collect whatever documentation you need. Don’t forget to take advantage of the cloud storage we offer on each plan.

Storage limits

Each form submission is limited to a total submission size of 25 MB. The amount of storage space you have for file uploads depends on the plan you're on:

  • Silver: 1 GB
  • Gold: 2 GB
  • Platinum: 10 GB

Storage integrations

We've built integrations with four leading cloud storage services: Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and Amazon S3. These integrations let you send file uploads directly to your cloud storage account. All four 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 25MB of data per form and a maximum of 20 file upload fields from a form.


How It Works

To collect file uploads, just drag and drop the File Upload field onto your form. You can customize what file types your form will accept, choose whether to add field names to the uploaded file name, and even receive uploads via email.

Unless you've connected your form to one of our storage integrations, all your file uploads will be stored in our secure database.
