Adding file uploads to forms

Updated 6 months ago

File attachment on record

Beacon 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.

  1. First, set up your Beacon form.

  2. 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).

  1. 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.
