You can set up a file upload component to accept media files as responses: media files can be a single file or multiple files.

For example, consider a form for cosmetic surgery with fields for before and after images. Here, you can set up one field each for uploading before and after images to have a record of the guest's history.

To view examples of this component, from sample forms, visit the Aesthetics Treatment Form form. The Before and After fields are File upload fields.

  1. From the Tools list, drag and drop the File upload component onto the form.

  2. To customize the component, place the mouse pointer on the component and click Edit.

  3. To name the field, under the Basic tab, in the Label field, enter a name.

  4. Click Save.

Action

Perform these steps

Make sure that the user cannot change the contents of the field

Note: In this context, a user is not just the guest but anyone who fills the form.

For example, calculated fields that are designed to display a value based on the values of other fields can be disabled making the field non-editable.

Under the Basic tab, select the Disabled check box.

Not display the label of the field

For example, file upload fields that are placed inside a table with a list of respective service names added beside them. You can hide the label to make the form look clean.

Under the Basic tab, select the Hide Label check box.

Ensure that the guest cannot change the contents of the field

For example, fields for the therapist's signature or doctor's notes can be made read-only on the guests' end.

Under the Basic tab, select the Make field read-only for guest (on CMA, Kiosk, Webstore, ZMA guest mode) check box.

Not display the field to the guests on CMA, Kiosk, Webstore, ZMA guest mode

For example, fields reserved for office use can be hidden from the guest.

Under the Basic tab, select the Hide field from guest (on CMA, Kiosk, Webstore, ZMA guest mode) check box.

Set the image size limit

Note: The image size is measured in pixels. If you enter 200 here, the image size will be set to 200 px.

Under the File tab, in the Image size field, enter the size of the image.

Allow users to upload multiple files to the field

For example, fields for uploading all the images related to one service.

Under the Data tab, select the Multiple Values check box.

Make the field mandatory

Under the Validation tab, select the Required check box.

Display an error message on the form when validation is not followed

For example, when the field is mandatory, but the user does not fill it, an error message can be displayed asking the user to fill the field.

Under the Validation tab, in the Custom error message field, enter the error message you want to display.

Note: You can make a field appear or disappear on the form, based on the value of another field.
