Squarespace includes a web forms tool called ‘Form Blocks.’ This built-in tool lets you create forms within your admin panel. It doesn’t currently offer you the ability to upload files from customers via a form.
There are some workarounds or scripts you could add to your site to allow a customer to attach files to your Squarespace form. However, these have their limitations, even if you are a tech-savvy user.
An easier option is to use upload page software like File Request Pro, which integrates with Squarespace. You can quickly embed a file upload form into your site to allow customers to upload files, CVs, job applications, or any other file you may need.
To use Form Blocks to add any kind of upload functionality to your SquareSpace website you need a business, commerce or legacy personal plan.
File Request Pro and Squarespace
File Request Pro is specialist upload page software that makes it as easy as possible for you to collect content and files from your customers. It is part form builder, part upload software and part automation tool.
Form builder: Use File Request Pro to create modern, branded online forms with different form fields. Apply conditional logic so customers only see questions relevant to them. Use multi-page forms to improve your response rate.
Upload software: Easily collect files using software specifically built for this purpose, with bank-level security. Request multiple large files or folders. Apply constraints if you need them.
Automation tool: All uploaded files go straight into a folder on OneDrive, SharePoint, Google Drive or Dropbox, dynamically organised by whatever value you choose. You can automate file request, reminder and thank you emails, as well as reusing upload page templates to streamline the file collection process and save time.
