<LiveUpload>

Start of documentation content

'Live Upload' is for uploading files.

Live?

The term 'Live' in <LiveUpload> refers to how uploads start immediately after the user chooses a file. This optimises for bandwidth (because uploading begins immediately so it ends sooner) and user feedback (because any upload errors are shown to the user earlier).

Intro

By default file uploads are sent to GetFormally.com.

With the SDK however destination of file uploads can be customised with the onLiveUpload prop.

The total file size of uploads is limited by your subscription.

Use of <LiveUpload>

Formally: Loading form, please wait...
