Unrestricting file type in Forms' upload

New Contributor

Hello All,


We are using a variety of different file types that are not the usual pictures and docs, and I am trying to figure out how to remove that restriction from our form question. I would like to let our users upload files custom to some of our programs. Is this possible?

Example file type would be .dxf or .dwg Thanks!

Did you find an answer to this? I need to be able to accept STL files for our 3D printers.

@SaraKelley No, I had to implement a workaround. Its for an internal project so I just told the users to put them in a common folder outside of the form.

@BoyerRou - Thanks! That's too bad. That sort of work around won't work for us. I need to be able to submit it with the form. 

@SaraKelley Did you ever find a solution for STL files? I'm in the same situation.

@Nick_Moore the only file types that Forms can handle are shown in the file upload question:



Los Gallardos
Intranet, SharePoint and Power Platform Manager (and classic 1967 Morris Traveller driver)

I agree with the need to be able to upload any type of file. I am trying to convert a process from SmartSheets/Zappier to Microsoft and this is the one piece we can do in SmartSheet that we cannot do in Microsoft. We need to be able to upload .stm files for 3d printing and do not want to have to put it in another location then capture the URL into the form. @microsoft are you listening?
