Allowing External Uses to Upload Attachments in Forms

Brass Contributor

Does anyone know if there is an update on allowing external users to add attachments? For example, resumes and documents from clients. Or is there a workaround for this? This seems pretty basic and the last update I found was in 2019.

@melissamarie this doesn't appear to have progressed. There are several requests for it which you can vote for, for example at

This answer, from MS, doesn't make sense, because there are many other workarounds to upload files into Microsoft Tenant, just an example is by using onedrive in combination with power automate and ms forms. Thus, I don't understand why MS makes harder our life in developing new solutions just like a form open to externals and allowing them to upload files.
Please it's been since 2020 People asking for this feature, it would be time to put it on.
