How to Change the Allowed File Types in the Upload Field

November 26, 2021

Users often ask which file types are supported in the File Upload field. The default file extensions are:

pdf, doc, docx, xls, xlsx, csv, txt, rtf, html, zip, mp3, wma, mpg, flv, avi, jpg, jpeg, png, gif

However, you can add or remove file types to this list whenever necessary. To learn more, watch this short video or refer to the text-based guide below:

1. Click on the GEAR icon to open the File Upload properties.

2. Go to the OPTIONS tab.

3. Type the extensions of the allowed file types.

🔘 Separate each with a comma.

🔘 Don’t include the leading dots/periods (e.g. type pdf instead of .pdf).

🔘 Type an asterisk * to allow all file types.
