Add more file format for file upload

For the file upload element in the CMS, I wish we could have more file format for upload.

For example ICS (can be used for Add to Calendar), MP3 (background music - with limited file size), MP4 (background video - with limited file size), etc.

    Is there any way to upload a .gpx file in the cms? My client wants users to download the routefiles so they can ride the routes.

    We really need the ability to upload mp3 files... already two of my customers want to play sounds on their websites but there is not even the possibility to upload a mp3 file with cms... so we use a really unsatisfactory workaround with soundcloud links.

    It cant be that hard to make it able to upload a mp3 file and maybe even add an audio player which is nothing else than a button which plays a sound. I mean... its 2020 xD

    Here's a example of a website i want to be able to create with webflow:

    We really, really need the ability to upload .ics at the very least, it's a very small format and really a huge flaw here.

    Any updates on adding the ability to upload an ICS files to collections? Seems like a common need for scheduling events......

    Audio support is super needed! I'm forced to setup Amazon bucket, just to add 3 audio files to my Webflow cms hosted site. At least you could add mp3 support with 1gb quota for all audio per site!

    Thanks for posting this, absolutely must have feature. The pric of CMS and E-commerce can easily withold mp3 and aac audio files, RAW images etc

    I would like the size limit per file to be higher. A minimum of 30mb. This will allow people to submit quality images. It would have to be larger for RAW files.

    Hey, 

    I have a lot of non-profit clients that use open office instead of Microsoft Office and complain that there is no support for ODT and ODS files. I can totally understand them since they often can’t afford the license for Office products. If they used a different CMS before they used Webflow they are usually disappointed or even mad that they are not allowed to use those files anymore.

    Actually, the most important file type that should be supported ASAP is the .zip file, as this can encapsulate anything.

    I agree with Nelson. At least let us have the .ics upload available first. The sooner the better. The team can consider about other file format later on. 😉

    Not so fast, Nelson! :D 

    What you're referring looks like it's the file field in the designer, right? But the file restriction still exists in the file field of the CMS: https://www.screencast.com/t/Dbuup1VHaAz9 

    Specific use case: My client needs to be able to upload an .ics file for each of their events so visitors can add those events to their calendar. Does that help?

    I just checked with our team and you can already add custom file types to your form file uploads:

    Hope this helps :)
