Download file

I have created an app where users can upload a file through a file picker, but I have struggled to download that file from my app. Any help please

Hey !

What do you mean, download files ? Do you want your users to download files uploaded in the app, or you want to be able to download what your users posted (as an admin) ?

I have an app with similar functionality. Instead of allowing a user to download the file through the app, I use Zapier to send them an email with the download link.

Either way, I don’t think the native Glide-generated link would allow a download. I haven’t had the same use case but wonder how other people do this? Do they upload the file to another external service upon request and then send the newly generated link to the user?

The users will have to upload the file in word or PDF, where it will be downloaded by other users.

What are you struggling with? Once the file is uploaded, you have the link to it, which you could link to a button or some other component to then open/download it. It’s it an open vs download issue, or something else?

You can create a Zapier/Integromat action so that whenever a new link is added to your sheet, you can send your users the link from your drive
