Our metadata feature enables you to request additional information about uploaded files. For example, if you're calling for submissions to an art exhibit, you might want to request metadata on each work's title, dimensions, and medium. This information will appear on the submission details page when you view the uploaded file.
To use it, follow the steps below:

1. Under Forms, add a new form or open an existing form.

2. In the form builder, click on an existing File Upload field or drag over a new file upload field.
3. Click Add Metadata Field, and type in the metadata information you are requesting. Continue adding fields. There is no limit to the number of metadata fields you can add per File Upload field.

4. Click Save in the upper right corner.

  • The metadata will be available when you preview the file:

  • There is currently no way to make the metadata fields required, even if the file upload field is required.

  • Metadata information is not reportable.
