Attachements … ahh!

  • Hi,

    <strong>Code:</strong>
    <p>Please attach financial statements from your current fiscal year</p>
    [file* currentfiscalyr]</p>
    
    <p>Please attach a copy of your current IRS tax-exempt determination letter. If tax exempt status is pending, provide an explanation of application status</p>
    [file* irsform]</p>
    
    <p>Please attach a copy of your most recent audit or form 900</p>
    [file* audit]</p>
    
    <p>Please attach a list of board members with terms, occupations, and places of employment</p>

  • With the help of the plugin author, I just (this morning) got the attachment feature working on one of my sites. I’ll step through the process I followed and hopefully it can help you. Follow this in order!

    1. From the dashboard, click Contact, then select the form. In the Form section (top left), enter <[file ACT_scores filetypes:gif|png|jpg|jpeg|pdf 30/] <span style="font-size:12px;"> Copy of ACT scores</span>. Not to insult your intelligence, but following ‘file’ is the name of the document (in my case ACT_scores. Note that it is one word). The filetypes is optional, but can be used to restrict the file extension(s) you want. The 30/ is optional and it sets the width of the input field, the length of what is enters can be any length. Add as many of these as you want (I have 6 required files).

    2. Then, scroll down to File attachments: under Mail. Enter each attachment enclosed within a pair of <strong>[</strong> and <strong>]</strong>. Example on my setup is <strong>[ACT_scores]</strong>. If you have more than one attachment, simple place the second right after the first (i.e. <strong>[ACT_scores]</strong> <strong>[SAT_scores]</strong>.

    The Form area code for my attachments is:

    `<strong>Attachments</strong>: (all documents can be scanned and saved or typed and saved)
      1. [file ACT_scores filetypes:gif|png|jpg|jpeg|pdf 30/] <span style=”font-size:12px;”> Copy of ACT scores</span>
      2. [file SAT_scores filetypes:gif|png|jpg|jpeg|pdf 30/] <span style=”font-size:12px;”> Copy of SAT scores</span>
      3. [file HS_transcript filetypes:gif|png|jpg|jpeg|pdf 30/] <span style=”font-size:12px;”> Copy of High School transcript</span>
      4. [file essay filetypes:doc|docx|pdf 30/] <span style=”font-size:12px;”> Typed essay (length 1/2 to 1 page)</span>
      5. Two letters of recommendation
          a. [file letter_1 filetypes:doc|docx|pdf|txt 30/] <span style=”font-size:12px;”> Faculty member with knowledge of applicant’s<br />
                academic achievements</span>
          b. [file letter_2 filetypes:doc|docx|pdf|txt 30/] <span style=”font-size:12px;”> Individual with knowledge of applicant’s<br />
                leadership qualities and potential</span>
      6. [file photo filetypes:gif|png|jpg|jpeg|pdf 30/] <span style=”font-size:12px;”> Photo of applicant in JROTC uniform</span>’ and the <strong>File attachments</strong> code is : [ACT_scores] [SAT_scores] [HS_transcript] [letter_1] [letter_2] [photo].

    If you read the docs that come with CF7, all will make sense – eventually.

    Hope this helps. If it does, do something that is helpful to someone else.

    Thanks Dave.

    But I have all of that code already with the exception of document type and size, in the correct spots, and it doesn’t show up on the actual page. There is no form to attach any sort of document. PS I did try adding the document type and size, per your suggestion and code, and it didn’t work.

    The form:

    Code in the FORM area:

    <p>Please attach financial statements from your current fiscal year</p>
    [file* currentfiscalyr]</p>
    <br/>
    <br/>
    <p>Please attach a copy of your current IRS tax-exempt determination letter. If tax exempt status is pending, provide an explanation of application status</p>
    [file* irsform]</p>
    <br/>
    <br/>
    <p>Please attach a copy of your most recent audit or form 900</p>
    [file* audit]</p>
    <br/>
    <br/>
    <p>Please attach a list of board members with terms, occupations, and places of employment</p>
    [file* boardmembers]</p>

    Code in the MAIL area under file attachments:
    [lastfiscalyr][currentfiscalyr][irsform][boardmembers][audit]

    So that am I missing?

    Don’t know if that got posted or not, but . . . .

    Send me an email <dave@customalpha.com> and I’ll send you my phone number so we can communicate directly rather than this way. I’m a little reluctant to post my phone number here.

    Dave
