File upload question

Would you like to use your typeforms for more than just asking questions? Would you like your respondents to attach files to their answers as well? Then this PRO feature is perfect for you!

The File upload question lets you add as many “please upload a file from your computer” questions as you would like, one for each file you want your respondent to send you. The maximum file size is 10MB.

Add a File upload question to your typeform

If you would like to use the File upload question in your typeform, just add it to your typeform structure in the Build panel in the same way that you would add any other question type.

You can edit the following settings:

  • Question text

  • Required question (on/off)

File upload settings

The File upload question supports all file types. This means that you can ask your respondents to send you for example an .mp3 file with their demo tape, a .doc file with their resume, or a photograph in RAW format.

With Logic Jump you can also do the following:

  • ask your respondent how large the file they are about to upload is,
  • based on the file size, you can either direct them to a File upload question where they can upload the file or to a Website question where they can paste the link to the file (as described above).

Download your files

If you receive a lot of file submissions, you can bulk download your files from the Results table: just click on the button Download, then select Download files from the drop-down.
