Input File Upload

The Input File Upload node allows your clients to upload one or more files when interacting with the front end of your bot. In this tutorial, we will see how to use this node.

Step 1: Add the Date Node
Add a File upload node in your bot from the “+” menu.

Step 2: Change the Field Name
Modify the field name of the File Upload Node for internal reference. Keep in mind that this field name will not be visible to the user in the frontend.

Step 3: Set File Type Restrictions (Optional)
Choose whether you want to allow only specific file types to be uploaded or if you prefer not to have any limitations on file types.

Step 4: Configure File Renaming (Optional)
Decide if the uploaded file should be renamed. You can choose to use a static name or a dynamic value by referring to another input field, such as a text field created earlier in the bot.
