Uploading files, such as PDFs, to the Webflow Asset Manager within Designer.
My number 1 i think. Especially PDFs. 90% of my clients need PDFs hosted!
Agreed. Some of my client's have asked why they can't use work documents on the site and the CMS.
Agreed! This is a must, it's such a basic requirement. :)
Can't fathom why this wasn't done to begin with, i'm sure it's an easy implementation and with all these votes we will see it soon.
I don't understand why this is still in the 'Considering' phase. It is so imperative that file uploads/downloads is included and was originally requested in the Webflow forum wish list way back in July 2014. Webflow staff (Vlad) have additionally said recently that this feature IS being implemented and will be shortly released after the big update in Dec 16. Is there any additional feedback on this?
Yes, this is important for .pdf and so on ...
Being able to host files is definitely one of the most desired tools, I know you guys at webflow are already working hard on all of our requests. So thankyou!
If the clients demand functionality and we don’t get it out of the box, WebFlow losses business, and we agencies painful hours searching for alternatives.
Missing features like: FILE UPLOAD (pdf, pptx, zip..) and SEARCH are two most influential missing features and DEAL BARKERS as I see it.
The competition is already catching up and if something drastically will not happen with these two so desired functionalities… many will have to go where clients want go… and that’s out of Webflow!
Moved to "Planned"! This makes me so happy. It's been the number one reason I've had to avoid Webflow for certain clients. Glad to see it finally happening. Is their a timeline for when we might see it in action?
It's planned! Thanks guys!
This wishlist thing is gonna work I can already tell.
One note, this should be possible also within the editor not just within the designer mode. As I see it, clients should be able to upload a pdf file within the CMS... as simple as the drag and drop of an image into it.
Great feature to add! In some cases I have to host jQuery plugins on another paid server while also paying for a Webflow hosting account.
Upload files into the Designer is fine, but the client/editors needs to be able to upload files also! The client often wants to attach a file to a news post or other dynamic content.
PLEASE!!! especially PDFs!
This is a big one. But URL paths to files (and image files) must use the primary domain being used on the hosted site.
As Sean mentioned: "But URL paths to files (and image files) must use the primary domain being used on the hosted site."
This is important for brand consistency, not to mention SEO juice.
It would be great if the assets (e.g., images, files, etc) had the actual custom domain name used for the website. This is especially important for SEO where the domain is given credit for the images, PDF documents, etc.
Of all the functions not yet integrated into Webflow, this is the only one to lose us clients. 1 did not sign, and 1 cancelled our website because the troublesome process of uploading PDF's to a 3rd party service and link to Webflow. I hope this will be part of the product soon!
PDF hosting would be huge for us!! Really hoping this gets added soon before DropBox drops their support for public folders (https://www.dropbox.com/help/16). When we move our assets, we want it to be to a permanent home in our webflow.io account. :)
This should merged with this idea
Would be great to also be able to have an upload button in forms.
pretty please. For PDFs... I guess Word docs are dangerous... I always hear about their inject viruses via scripts. Don't really want word docs. but PDFs. yes!
It has #1 Priority for me! Clients wants to have pdf preview and download option.
So glad this is planned :)
Yes agree with comments below in that we're in need of this functionality to support a client but are currently unable to deliver the required functionality until this is in place.
Looking forward to seeing it in action!
Uploading trough the CMS, not only in the asset manager! The end user needs to upload files too, not only the site designer!
Being able to upload PDF files is an absolute must for my clients!
#1 Priority for me too. This functionality is required by my clients.
You know you need it!
PDFs are a priority but JS files would also be nice on the designer side (no real need for the CMS side).
everybody fill this out!!
need to make sure that json files can be hosted too for those that want to use bodymovin.js
Hi. Is there an update to this. What kind of timescales are we talking. I am about to bid on a big project but if I can't provide file upload capability then I am out of the race before I even start. Thanks guys. I know you're working hard!
Very happy this is in development - thanks for listening Webflow! Is there a deliverable on timeframe?
We would be grateful if Admin could provide an update on this.After all, it is the third most popular item in the entire Wish List and the last update was in January!
It's finally here!
Hooraahhhhh! I've been waiting years for this. Many many thanks webflow team.
Hey everyone, as Vocantas mentioned above, we just shipped the first phase of this feature: https://webflow.com/feature/upload-pdfs-ppts-docs-csvs-and-way-more
Files with the following extensions are currently supported: .pdf, .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pptx, .txt, .csv - we will expand this list as we see demand for more file types. For now, upload sizes are limited to 10MB per file.
We'll also be working on adding file upload support to the CMS and Editor in a second phase: https://wishlist.webflow.com/ideas/WEBFLOW-I-725
I'm really liking this Wishlist-way of introducing new features. It's a great step, as well as with the communication on the public blog by Bryant:
So thanks Webflow, for listening to the community two years ago and giving us a voice.
Perfect, we have been waiting for this, thank you!
I love this Wishlist feature!
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
