File Attachments and Zapier

I'm hoping someone here knows the answers because I've had a pretty hard time getting Formstack admin to respond to my questions. I have a form that streamlines receipts for real estate projects and has three attachment spots. We have several projects going on, so even though I have my files going into a specific folder in Google Drive, I used Wufoo and Zapier in the past to move attachments into the folders they needed to go on for each individual project by reading the drop-down option from my form. Unfortunately, Zapier is unable to discover the attachments since Formstack gives the attachments weird default names and cannot read the PDF, PNG, or JPG files that are displayed in Google Drive. For instance: Zapier may search for a file using a field from a form, like the address, which would be 123 Main St, Maintown, GA 30310. Formstack, however, uploads the file using 123MainStMaintownGA30310, resulting in an error. We have SO MANY problems now because of how organised we thought everything was. We just migrated to Formstack because Wufoo cannot customise the user interface, however if there is no fix for this, I am really considering going back. I find it difficult to believe that no other clients have required a similar service. With any other sort of remedy, I've never experienced these problems. With this, Wufoo was quite simple to use, and we never encountered any problems.

How to pre-associate data to a submission

Thanks in advance - I am embedding a form into an existing application and need a way to associate our internal user id to a submission/presubmission so that I can pull the submission data out via the api and associate it back to the user in our system. After reviewing the documentation, it looks like I would need to create a pre-submission + add a hidden field to the form that contains the users id. Is this the best way to accomplish my desired outcome? Thanks!

Node.js formPost API Returns Error

When I try to follow the Node.js example in the documentation, I get this error: "`formPost` does not appear to be a valid operation on this API." When I try to install the API from OpenAPI, I get this error: "Sorry, this OpenAPI definition does not have any operation paths to generate an SDK for." I'd appreciate any help with this.

Displaying my file upload (pictures) from Typeform as picture instead of link

As the headline says, this is what I am stuck with. Let me break it down; - I have uploaded a word-document to Formstack Documents and linked all my merge fields with Typeform fields through Zapier. - The delivery is a PDF, which is sent through mail. - Images from Typeform are shown as links that you can click and download - but I would like them to show the actual picture in the PDF rather than a link. What I've tried to put in the Word document: <img src="{$TheLookpic1name}"alt="whatever"width="240"height="240"> It still shows as a link, and the HTML-code is shown as well. Does anyone have a work around? Thank you in advance!

File Attachments and Zapier

Hello, I unfortunately have had a really rough time with Formstack admin being able to answer my questions, so I'm hoping someone here has the answers. I have a form, with three attachment slots, to streamline receipts for real estate projects. I have my files going into a designated folder in google drive, but as we have multiple projects, I was previously using Wufoo and Zapier to bring attachments into the folders they needed to go on for each different project, reading the drop down menu from my form. Unfortunately, Zapier cannot read the attachments as the PDF, PNG, or JPGs that are shown in google drive, as well as it cannot locate them since Formstack has a wonky way of default names on the attachments. For example: Zapier can look for a file based on a field submitted in the form such as the address, which would look like 123 Main St, Maintown, GA 30310 But Formstack uploads the file with 123MainStMaintownGA30310, and therefore it it showing an error. This is causing SO many issues for us and how we had everything streamlined. We only switched to Formstack for the user interface customization that Wufoo cannot offer, but I am very much considering switching back if there isn't a solution for this. I have a hard time believing no other customers have needed something similar. I've never had these issues with any other form solution. Wufoo was extremely easy to navigate with this and we never had any issues.

API Documentation: Link Does NOT Resolve...

Hi All, This is my first post, so be gentle. Although I presume it is always welcomed to share a glitch in the Documentation... When I was reading along on in the documentation... quite good BTW, thanks to those that write and maintain!... anyway When I was reading along on: https://developers.formstack.com/reference/field-id-put There is a Header 'Field Attributes'. Nearly immediately below that is the text "See Field Types" where the string 'Field Types' is linked to `https://developers.formstack.com/docs/field-types` which resolves to a big honking 404! Similar linked text for 'Field Logic' and 'Field Calculations' resolve successfully to `https://developers.formstack.com/reference/field-logic` and `https://developers.formstack.com/reference/field-calculations` respectively. On a hunch, I tried `https://developers.formstack.com/reference/field-types` and it resolved as expected and I presume this is what I need to know, so that is good... Similarly, on a hunch, I discovered that the 'Field Types' link for POST was also inaccurate in the exact same way. I trust someone on this discussion board knows how to more directly and efficiently alert the 'owner' of these docs. Regards, Brad
