File Upload--View the actual File

Hello Bubble Universe!

I want my users to be able to upload documents.

Here’s where I am stuck, I know how to create a new thing, I know how to use repeating groups, I know how to direct them to a new page, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the actual file displayed once it has been uploaded using the file uploader.

Essentially, I followed step by step “sending data to pages” in the lessons section. However the file I want to display is not an image, thus my predicament.

Thank you!

Hi Brian, you can create on the db (that using the page) (as you said you did the tutorial sending data to pages) 2 new fields (in the case you didnt)
1- File (file type)
2- File name (text type)

Go to your page that will collect all the info when link is generated.
Add a link element.

Set name -> Current Page File name
Set external link to -> Current Page file

Like this:

So you get something like this:
