RSForm!Pro 2.2.4 - Multi File Upload feature, improved usability and functionality

We are happy to announce you our new and improved version of RSForm!Pro. Let's take the main features of the component one by one and talk a little more about each one.

Multi File Upload

Since this was a highly demanded feature by our clients, we decided to include this in the latest version of the component. This feature will allow your users to upload multiple files during their form submission, through a single form field.

Until this version, if you wanted to allow your users to upload multiple files, you had to create a File Upload field for each file that had to be uploaded.

Now, you can easily achieve this by editing your File Upload field, switching to the Attributes tab and setting to "Yes" the "Multiple" option. When this option is enabled, more configuration fields will become visible, such as: Minimum Uploads, Maximum Uploads or Separator option which will allow you to configure the fields as per your needs.

Enclosure and Delimiter options for CSV export

One of the most useful functionalities of RSForm!Pro is that allows exporting the form submissions into CSV format file through Submission Directory menu item.
