Upload multiple files at once

I have a use-case for being able to upload multiple files at once via File Picker.

This topic is similar to someone wanting to upload multiple images at once - but I thought I would add this as it pertains specifically to the File Picker.

My users are often grabbing many files at once. As a result, I have 20+ File Picker components in a form. But as you can imagine, that is a lot of clicking for the user to upload a single file using a single file picker. Additionally, this increases the risk of accidentally missing one of the 20+ files that they need to send through the app.

One idea is to save the links to the files as comma-separated values in the cell:
(https://storage.googleapis.com/glide-prod.appspot.com/uploads-v2/XXXXX/pub/AAAAA.xlsx, https://storage.googleapis.com/glide-prod.appspot.com/uploads-v2/YYYYY/pub/BBBBB.stp, https://storage.googleapis.com/glide-prod.appspot.com/uploads-v2/ZZZZZ/pub/CCCCC.stl, …etc).

I can work with that comma-separated array on the back-end using Zapier and other methods.

Thank you

I like your idea and voting for it

This is a great idea and is long overdue within Glide. Please allow this ASAP as it is not currently a good user experience. Users should be able to drag and drop or upload as many files as they wish. Thank you
