Upload File Question

What is the upload file question?

Using the Upload Files question, you can have your respondents upload files with their survey response. This helps if you need additional information from respondents which they may have in digital format. The uploaded files get saved in the database along with individual responses. This question type is great for mobile surveys, where respondents can upload a photo from their mobile device to the survey.

How can I add an Upload Files question to my survey?

  1. Click on Login » Surveys » Edit » Workspace
  2. Click the "Add Question" button to add a question.
  3. Select Attach/Upload File from under Advanced Question Types.

  4. upload-attach-file-question_1
  5. Enter question text, using inline editing.

There must be a page-break before the Attach/Upload File Question and so it cannot be the first question in the Survey.
