Here is a form sample to use on your webpage when you want to get file uploads to your forms:
There are some restricted fields that we will ignore in your submissions. Please do not include them in your forms.
Please note that to receive your submissions correctly for the texts that belong to language families other than Latin, you should include - accept-charset="UTF-8" - attribute to your form code.
To invite your friends to your forms and share the submissions with them on Getform, you just use invitation feature on the form by adding the e-mail address of the friends or colleagues you want to invite.
Please note that when the submissions started to arrive at your invited forms, submission counts are just decreased from the inviter's submission count, not from invited user's count.
To view and download your submission you simply need to be logged in to Getform and click on your forms to reach the form detail page.
You also have the option to download all your submissions as .xls file. Your downloaded .xls files can be opened using most major spreadsheet programs including Microsoft Excel, Apple Numbers, and Google Docs.
While processing your forms you may want to validate them to ensure that users enter the correct data. You can validate your forms easily with HTML5. Doing validations with HTML5 takes minimal effort to implement.
Even though HTML5 form validation is still not being supported in some browsers, you still find it useful depending on your needs. Here are some examples:
The "required" attribute
The simplest change you can make to your forms is to mark a text input field as "required". The required attribute informs the (HTML5-aware) web browser that the field is to be considered mandatory.
Input type = "email"
This input type guarantees an email address is formatted correctly.
Input type = "number" and type = "range"
The number and range input types also accept parameters for min, max and step. Ensure a number is with a range.
Input type = "url"
This input type guarantees a URL is formatted correctly.
The "minlength" and "maxlength" attributes
With these attributes, you can limit the characters in a text input or textarea.
Your forms and form submission data are only accessible by authorized users on your account and user accounts invited to your forms.
