how to upload different file types to flows

We have created a community form using a flow that allows our customers to request our services. Within that they often need to upload files as reference materials. within the flow we are using the file upload flow component. This component is only letting us upload .pdf and .docx files. we would like it to allow us to upload a slew of different file types ( .pdf and .docx..jpg, .png, .tiff, .csv, .xls etc.). I have looked at various help articles to allow me to add the file extensions to the component but every time i get an error saying only .pdf and .docx can be uploaded. how do i configure the flow component to allow use to upload different file types?

Hi Kaleb,


You can only upload the files of type .jpg, .png and, .Pdf only with file upload flow component.

But,I would suggest you to check the blog ( for importing the CSV in flow.

Kindly mark it as best answer if it helps so that it can help others in the future.

Warm Regards,
