Use OneDrive Request File to upload files after form submission.

1. Navigate to the location of the uploads

Go to the location in OneDrive where you would like the uploads to go. If needed, create a new folder for the uploads.

In this photo I am creating a new folder called "Request File Example".

2. Select the folder

Hover over folder name to reveal a select box to the left of the folder icon. Click on the select box.

4. Add a description

The description you add will later be shown when users are uploading files.

In this photo I added the description "Dining Hall Resumes".

5. Copy the link

After adding the description you will be presented with a link. Click on the "copy link" button to copy the link. You will need this link since it is where users will go to upload their files.

6. Setup URL redirect on your form

In the form settings section on your form, change the success message to "URL Redirect". In the URL field paste your file request URL.

Now when someone completes the form they will be redirected to the file upload. You can view the live example of this at the following page: https://www.montana.edu/web/example-form.html
