File attachment questions allow responders to upload files into the form.
File Upload questions will accept any file type unless you specify allowed file types and you must set the file size limit for each question.
- Only 1 file can be uploaded per question so you will need to build a question for each desired document.
- Each form has up to 25 MiBs (mebibyte) of storage that can be allocated across all the upload questions in the form.
- For example, one application might have 5 file upload questions, each with a limit of 5MiB, for the maximum form total of 25MiBs.
- When asking for big files such as Pictures and Financial Statements you will want to set your file size to 4-5 MiB or more.
- When asking for smaller files such as budgets 1-2 MiB should be plenty.
- You can always increase the file size limit for a question if needed.
- File Upload questions cannot be shared into other forms.
- Any question that you would like to share directly into an evaluation form should be built as a different question type.
- Administrators commonly ask for Budgets and Financial Statements using File Upload questions.
- For reference, a MiBs (mebibyte) is very similar to a MB (megabyte) which most people are used to. The difference is that a MiB is approximately 1,048 KBs and MB is 1,000 KBs.
- A “Text & Upload” question will allow the user to type in text and/or upload a document.
- If this question type is marked as required, the responder only has to fulfill 1 option (text or upload) but can answer both.
- The text area option can have up to a 10,000 character text response.
- When building this question type you must set the character limit and the file upload limit.
- Text & Upload question types are commonly used for board rosters where the responder can either type in a board list or upload a file containing the board list.
- If you want consistency in your responses, it is a better practice to select either a text area or an upload question type and ask all responders to submit the same type of response.
Formatting tools do not require a response.
- Divider Lines are used to divide questions in a group or to separate sections of a form.
- Instructions allow you to communicate additional information throughout the form.
