alois.einser created the topic: File

Is there a way not to store files on the server if I have a field of the type „File“ („Datei“)?

It is a GDPR-thing …

I just want these files to be sent as an attachment (Sending as an attachment works fine).

I found no way to turn off that all files are stored on the server.

Maybe I should remove the value for {ff_uploads} in the configuration?

TIA! Alois

Hello,

It is possible to delete the file uploaded on the server after sending it in the email as an attachment.

lease go to form's Advanced properties > More options > Submit pieces and in the End Submit section set Type to Custom. In the code area below paste code like this:
//Deletes the uploaded files
$this->execPieceByName('ff_InitLib');
unlink(ff_getSubmit('upl1'));
NOTE: In the code above replace "upl1" with the name of the file upoad field in your form.

That should do the trick, when clicking on a submit button the files will be uploaded on the server, sent by email and then deleted.

Let me know whether you have managed to apply this to your form and whether it works as you wanted.

Regards,

Mihaela

This might sound a bit oversubtle:
Where are the uploaded files stored before a customer hits the „Send“-button?
What happens to them if the customer never hits the „Send“-button?
Are they removed automatically after some time?
I want to get everything right with the GDPR …
