External Users be able to upload files
External users can upload files to forms. Only users that are within the org can upload files. This is impractical for Non-profit customers that want to use forms to get files from volunteers. For forms to work, you have to licenses every user, this case every volunteer, with an account in order to upload a file. Other form solutions allow anyomous file uploads.
This creates issues now using another forms solution, then using Zapier to get the file ingested to a OneDrive location, and then finally using Flow ("power automate") to get that file into a Sharepoint library.
OR... you have to create a power app that acts like a form via a portal app. Then have to write extreme amounts of code to make that form branch like the MS Forms product just to get a file from an external user.
Please someone from MS get this to development. This feature has been in request since April 2017 (see https://microsoftforms.uservoice.com/forums/386451-welcome-to-microsoft-forms-suggestion-box/suggestions/18859033-add-upload-attachment-for-uploading-a-document-im). There has been no recent updates.
please. Thank you.
If anyone can recommend other apps that have this solution, please share. Thank you.
we need this featues and i keep receiving user compliant about this
Will this ever get done can we at lease please have a response from Microsoft about this or whether its on the roadmap at all???
Jim McGowan commented
Please add this functionality!
Can MS hurry up and get this done?
Even if there is a way to use Flow to auto-sign into a restricted account upon loading a form called forms@ or something that is used for uploads. I'd happily pay for a Business Basic license to have a single account for external users form uploading.
Surely there is a way to do this!
Microsoft. Are there any developments on this? Surely it can't be difficult to add seeing as though the feature is already embedded within Forms for internal users.
I hope microsoft will understand this is basic requirement.

Does anyone have any recommendations for going around this? I have created a Microsoft form where attachments NEED to be included somehow, but not having this feature for public use has really put me behind.
If anyone has suggestions for what I can do in the meantime, please send them my way!
It's basic feature to us. So add this function
Sergio Niño commented
Microsoft please help us, it's very important to us get this feature! Thanks!

We need to upload files in Forms from external users and these files saved into a specific folder in OneDrive or Sharepoint, Forms is SEVERLY limited in its current state.
Only internal use is possible.
Yes, please add this feature! Is there a particular reason why it's not available?
Michael Melo commented
We are looking forward for it a long time...
Definitely, this has to be added feature.

I was asked to automate a process. I had a Forms, Power Automate, and SharePoint solution in place to obtain and process information from people outside of my organization. I was asked to add file upload to the Form, yet that feature is only available to internal users. This is very frustrating.
We need this ASAP. We work hard to bring customers into Microsoft 365 but stuff like this makes customers run away from Microsoft. Its been like 4 years now, are Microsoft even checking this feedback or its just here so you can say you have a feedback page?

Totally impractical not to be able to upload files for those outside the organisation. Please code this as soon as possible please.
We are paying for 3rd party for this functionality

I was stoked to use forms to tightly integrate a form with attachments into a team/list environment for several of my teams, went to test and realized attachments only work for internal users. Deflated once again by M$, classic under delivery of a solution and years of customers begging for what should have been delivered when attachments were added to the product.
