Accepting Files through an online form is one of the most practical ways to automate your workflow. With MightyForms you can limit the size of the file, make sure it's a certain type and all your file submissions go straight to your Google Drive or Dropbox cloud via native integration.

Here's how you can create this workflow:

1. Select a form

First thing you need to do is login to your MightyForms app, then:

Select an existing form from your dashboard
Create a new form from scratch
Select one of the Templates.
Or Transfer an existing Form.

2. Go to Integrations

Click on 'Integrations'.



Learn more about how to connect with either:

Google Drive
or Dropbox

3. Go back to the form

Once you've integrated with one of those Cloud services, go back to your form's dashboard by selecting 'Builder' from the sidebar menu.

4. Add the 'Upload File' field

To add a File Upload field look to the left corner of the page where your builder toolbox is. Use the search bar or scroll to find the File Upload field, select it and drag and drop wherever you want it in your form.



5. Set up 'Upload File' settings

Select the File Upload field once it's in your form and you'll see it's properties on the toolbox. 

❗ If you need every form submission to have a file uploaded, remember to check the box to make this a Required Field.

📧 You can automatically receive/send uploaded files through your email notifications by switching 'ON' the Email Attachment.

Click 'Add Cloud Drive' the integration with the cloud server of your choice.

Note: if you have both a Google Drive and a Dropbox account integrated, simply select the one you want this particular set of submitted files to be sent to.



Once you select and login, you can select the folder you want the submissions to be sent to.



Name the label for this field, a placeholder text, and the button text.

MightyForms has a pre-listed some forms of the file you could accept. You can customize exactly the kind of files you want by selecting 'Custom' and writing the type of file you want underneath.
