    You need to go into the formbuilder, select the file uploader field, then you can add in the Extensions for the file types you want to be accepted. By default it will already be filled in with the most commonly used ones.

    Something I forgot to mention since you said that you want to allow All File types is to erase the list and just put an " * " (astrick symbol). This will allow you to accept all file types without inputting every single file type there is.

    Please see this guide http://www.jotform.com/help/29-Upload-Field-Allowed-File-Types which also has a video containing the use of the * in it.

    When you say it's a different form, do you mean it's not from JotForm? If so, it is not possible. We can not help you with it. However, if it's from JotForm you can set that when you click your file upload field as per instructed by my colleague.

    Thanks!

    Sorry about that. Unfortunately we can't view the pic you've mentioned.

    If you have attached the picture via E-mail then sorry but it can't be carried over here in forum. We'd suggest to post it on this thread instead: https://www.jotform.com/answers/186755-Im-using-the-universal-upload-template-how-can-i-make-it-accept-all-types-of-files-documents-.

    You can Upload the image to our Image Repository and post here the Image URL so we can review it.

    Nevermind, I just realized you are using Filepicker.io tool not the normal file upload tool under Form Tools. Unfortunately we do not have such option on the Filepicker.io tool. It still on developers to do list. No ETA as of yet but once it is added you will be informed here.

    Thanks and apologies for the misunderstanding. Thanks!
