How do I attach files to my form?
The Attachment element allows you to link files (PDF, MOV, MP4, HTML) to your mobile device's local database or external web content (connection required) within your form.
To add an Attachment element to your form, please follow the instructions below.
form builder tip
You must initially open the form while connected to the internet to open any attachment. Once initially opened, the file will download locally and no internet connection will be required in order to access unless changes are made to the form.
From inside the form builder, click the Attachment button from the left-hand menu (A). You'll see it populate the device view (B).
On the right-hand side, you'll see the element properties. Enter the name of your element (A), and if you like, a description of what information should be entered in the element when collecting (B).
Note that if you check the Based on Label option, it will create a data column based on the Label on the element.
Add the URL pointing to your file or website in the Attachment Link field.
Test on your device.
