Allow members and/or conference registrants to upload file attachments - like abstract submission

Our academic society would find it extremely useful if members -- or better yet, conference registrants -- could upload files (e.g., Word docs, PDFs). This would allow presenters at the conference to share papers prior to the conference, potentially enhancing the feedback that they would get from other conference-goers. We would really like to provide this service for our members/conference attendees.

        The ability for members to upload docs to support eligibility criteria when applying for membership would also be very useful.

        Agreed, this would be extremely helpful. Especially if you could categorize documents (release forms, medical forms), and then export all submissions in that category as a PDF report.

        This would be an extremely helpful feature and there is clearly a lot of support for it.

        Adding PowerPoints submissions to event registrations (Call for Papers) would be highly valuable.

        We like to be able to attach supporting docs, *pdf, onto members Profiles. Thanks very much.

        It would be a great add-on to be able to allow members to upload their photos without them being resized. This would allow us to download and reuse their photos for onsite events and presentations without having thumbnail only sizes.

        It would be great to be able to attach PDFs to the member profiles, such as their actual membership forms.

        Thank you

        I hope you are working on developing an abstract submission tool for conferences. We love Wild Apricot for our events and membership needs. We currently set up an event for abstract submission. It works but is administratively not efficient. We would love to see a more sophisticated tool as an add on.

        I would like a way for new members to be able to upload their resume. You have the capability to upload a avatar - why not a resume.

        Yes! Having a way for Members to upload files would be great! Even if it's just for an event! It would allow us to use an event as a registration form and allow event registrants to upload relevant files instead of emailing them. It'll also save from us having to use an alternative form website that supports file uploads.

        This Wishlist item may achieve the goal of the other wishlist item that has been ABANDONED! (Allow members and/or conference registrants to upload file attachments). How are members supposed to share documents easily with each other?????

      • ccrboardccrboard commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Ability for an applicant to upload documents such as proof of CEs, letters of recommendation, copies of licenses, etc.

      • LAURALAURA commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We would love to have the ability to upload pdf documents to a members file. Certificates, original paper applications for older members for the sake of history. When a member receives an award, we check out their original membership folder for history that predates our staff. We'd love to be able to upload these documents over time and have all of our membership information in one place.

        I would use this type of feature to allow members to retrieve their own certificate of attendance to a conference. they can keep a history of the certificates from the events they attend.

        I work for the Association of African American Museums, and we need this functionality ASAP in order to streamline conference scholarship applications and the same reasons stated by this initial poster! Please make this happen ASAP!!!

        I had previously been advised that the implementation of a file upload option, was on the WA roadmap for 2016, but there doesn't seem to be any update on an ETA for this crucial feature. Is it possible to please get some idea of when this might be offered?
