Beacon now allows files to be submitted with any Beacon form! It's a great way to let users verify identity documents, apply for job or volunteer postings with a CV, even submit projects with a Powerpoint presentation or Word document. Or maybe you just want a selfie.
First, set up your Beacon form.
Secondly, make sure there is a File upload field, or create one, on the record you're wanting to upload to (such as Attachments on an Event attendee or Person record).
- Lastly, select that field when you add a field to a section of the form. Fill in a description, and select which file types you'd like to be allowed.
Note: We deliberately limit the types of files that can be uploaded to minimise risk of viruses. Your data is important to us! If you need a particular file type that isn't listed, get in touch with us.
You're done! View your form and give it a try.
