Need help with a download button

I’m trying to make a download button for my website but i cant figure out how to do it. Can somebody help me?

Download what -a pdf?

well like any file

Upload the file using the file manager then get its url. Use this url on a button action workflow navigate to file URL

I’m trying to let users upload files and then people can download it

Use a file uploader


Exactly and then when the file is uploaded you can get the URL of the item with URL. In a workflow, for example, you can use navigate to this URL to allow person to download the file.

PS: You need to have a database table with a field to hold your file or at least a link to the file depending on the security level you are using.

I cant find the url option and I scrolled down too.

I believe you need to go one more, enter the Upload_file and in the next options it should show you the URL. Assuming Upload_file is the name of your field holding the uploaded document or file.

it shows the default url still, is there a way to change it?

You got what you wanted. Change it to what? Thats the URL where your file is at, if it was not uploaded as private.

It all depends on what you want to do. If you do not want to display it and simply put a button that Navigates there or use a link element with the words like “View Document Here”. It’s totally up to you.

Here is where your creative juices come in. It’s up to you and what you want to do with it.

If you want me to look at your app, private message me and perhaps we could do a session.
