iStart Tips:

Merging PDFs: If you need to combine multiple pdf files into one pdf you can use various free tools. Adobe provides a free pdf merge tool at https://www.adobe.com/acrobat/online/merge-pdf.html
File Upload Size: E-form file uploads are limited to a combined size of 20Mbs per e-form. If you receive an error when trying to upload documents make sure you have not exceeded the upload limit. You may need to lower your document resolution or quality settings. 
File Name Errors: Make sure your upload files have a proper file extension (Ex. .pdf) and that the filenames do not include any special characters (*,;,%,$, etc)
