Multiple Attachments in Forms

Hello -

I'm currently working with our HR department on utilizing Smartsheet to essentially work as our application.

I'd like to be able to have the ability for our applicants to attach their resume as well as their cover letter, however once I add one field in a form, I'm unable to add the other.

Has anyone had any experience doing something similar? If so, what did you do as a work around?

    you are right there is only one box for uploads per form but all you need to do is explain next to the Upload File box that the Form enterer can add as many uploaded files as they wish.

    Smartsheet forms used for candidates to apply for work is a very popular use of Smartsheet Forms to sheets. 

    Why not also add a dropdown list of the Jobs currently on offer? This can be easily modified as jobs are filled or added. 

    Hope that helps?

    Slight clarification:

    Users may add as many files as they wish, as long as they are smaller than 30Mb and there are no more than 10 of them.

    We had a customer that wanted 12. 

    To accomplish this, there was a second form for 'additional files' and a manual process to move them. Luckily it did not happen very often.

    Well refined CW. Useful to know what we cannot do as much as what we can?

    To clarify, each file must be smaller than 30Mb?  I'm painfully new at this. Thanking you for posting.
