Front-end File Uploads

To allow a user to upload a file from the front-end, all you need to do is add an Assets field to your form. If you output your form using the displayForm tag, validation and error handling will be setup for you.


Asset URLs

When notifications are enabled, by default, Sprout Forms will send a notification that includes the file name that has been uploaded. To send notifications that include a direct link to your file, you can enable Template Overrides or use Sprout Email. Your Email Templates code might look something like this:

{% set resume = object.resumeAssetFieldHandle.first() %}  Resume: {{ resume.getUrl() }} 

File Attachments

To send all submitted files as file attachments via a notification email you can Enable File Attachments in your Form's Notification settings.

Template Overrides

If you need to build a custom form with file-uploads, make sure your Form tag is set up to handle files using enctype="multipart/form-data". Here is a very simple example of a form with a single file upload field:

<form method="post" action="" accept-charset="UTF-8" enctype="multipart/form-data">   {{ getCsrfInput() }}   <input type="hidden" name="action" value="sprout-formsorms/entries/save-entry">   <input type="hidden" name="handle" value="contact">   <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="contact?message=thankyou">      <input type="file" name="fields[assetFieldHandle]">    <p><input type="submit" value="Submit"></p>  </form>
