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.

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

    Hope this helps :)

    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?

    Thanks for the clarification. I noticed this too and changed the status of this item and added it to the backlog. Stay tuned for updates :)

    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. 😉

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

    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.

    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.
