How do I show the user completing the form the file they uploaded so they can either remove, update, or resubmit? My upload element is working but if I resubmit the form without re-uploading, the field gets overwritten with nothing.

Hello,

After the form is submitted the form should be automatically reset so it should be obvious that no file is updated. Are you maybe using the "Submission editable by user" feature in your menu item for this form?

In my opinion, the best solution is to create a "Thank you page" to which user will be redirected after he fills in the form.
It could have a notice about the uploaded element if wanted.

Regards,

Yes I'm using submission editable by user. It's a form that might require edits after submission.

I can do the thank you page but then how do I allow the user to go back in and edit if needed?

Hello again,

In the mean time I have come to a simpler solution than previously suggested.

Should the "File upload" be required on the form? If it should then you could add validation to that field so if user tries to resubmit the form without the file uploaded an error message is shown.

Would that solution work for you?

Regards,

Mihaela
