Add file attachment (PDF, PPT, etc) field type to the CMS

Now that Webflow implemented the first phase of static file uploads in the Asset Manager, we need to add the ability to upload the new types of non-image assets via the Webflow CMS.

It should be possible for clients to upload/change files/attachments via the Editor interface as well.

    Equally important is to have a file upload button component in the form block that will allow website visitors to upload a file in a form submission.

    Use Cases:

    • Very useful when making career section on a corporate website where potential visitors can apply for a job opening by filling up a form and attach their CV.
    • For Education industry websites: Usually a form is required where applicants can fill up their details and attach their past education documents for a course registration.

    You guys sort of dropped the ball on the asset manager upload (you can't upload audio or any other media)... Please allow audio file uploads for this.
