# File Upload Form Installation

Enabling forms powered by Getform to accept file uploads is really easy. You simply have to add enctype="multipart/form-data" to your form tag and you're all set.

# File Upload Form Setup with Single Input

The simplest way to enabling file uploads is to have a single file input in your form.

<form action="https://getform.io/f/{your-form-endpoint}" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    <input type="text" name="name">
    <input type="email" name="email">
    <input type="file" name="resume">
    <button type="submit">Send</button>
</form>

# File Upload Form Setup with Multi Input

You can add more than one file input to your form and send in one submission.

<form action="https://getform.io/f/{your-form-endpoint}" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    <input type="text" name="name">
    <input type="email" name="email">
    <input type="file" name="resume">
    <input type="file" name="photo">
    <input type="file" name="document">
    <button type="submit">Send</button>
</form>

INFO

The action="#" determines where submitted data will be posted for processing.

# File Upload Form Setup with "Multiple" attribute

You can also use HTML5 multiple file upload syntax. Your file input must include name="files[]" multiple for this option to work.

<form action="https://getform.io/f/{your-form-endpoint}" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    <input type="text" name="name">
    <input type="file" name="photos[]" multiple>
    <button type="submit">Send</button>
</form>

INFO

Multiple Attribute Support is available on Start, Grow and Scale plans (opens new window).

That's it, you're ready to accept file uploads to your forms with Getform!
