May 2021

Let's get a sneak peek of what's new this May.


Required settings for (P) Upload File


You can now set the (P) Upload File element as Required. Once you turn on the toggle button of the “Required” field, your customers must upload a file before submitting their order. This can significantly reduce the problems for businesses that take custom orders.
