Is microsoft word document allowed for file upload?

I am receiving the following error when a word document is being uploaded using File Upload web control.
Non supported asset type. Supported types: [application/pgp-encrypted, application/pdf, application/pgp-encrypted, application/, application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet, application/zip, application/json, application/jsonl, audio/mpeg, audio/mpeg, audio/wav, font/otf, font/ttf, font/woff, application/font-woff, font/woff2, application/font-woff2, image/gif, image/jpeg, image/jpg, image/png, image/svg, image/svg+xml, image/, image/x-icon, text/html, text/plain, text/csv, video/mp4]

Hi Pavank!

Plain Microsoft Word files are not one of the files accepted by the File Upload Control. You can see a complete list of the types it does accept here.

Right now, the File Upload Control accepts the same file types that can be stored in the Media Library, and the emphasis certainly tends to be on visual media. How much of a blocker is this for you? I can get a feature request submitted.

Thanks @Chandra_Bergmann for your response.
This is not a show stopper for now but it would be great to have a feature request.

I’ve submitted a request to engineering! I’ll keep you posted here as far as where that lands in the roadmap.

Hi @pavank, I was wondering - what is stored in the MS Word file? Can you share a little more about the contents and the scenario around who would be doing the uploading and why?

Update here: looks like support for uploading word documents via the File Upload Control should now be a part of the v18.4 release, which is set to come out next Thursday!

Hey David, there is no particular word file/format we are using. The original form that we are going to replace with Airkit accepts word document to be uploaded, so it was identified as an issue during UAT.

That’s great news. Thanks @Chandra_Bergmann
