How do I enable the permission to upload a file. For image file uploading, this is done in the Roles area, and you enable "Upload images in file chooser." I want allow users to upload other files using the file chooser (such as .pdf files), and I don't see it in this area. Is it in another area or combined with another permission?

    Hi Bridget,

    I believe the ability to upload files from the file chooser should be controlled by the same ability you mentioned above (Upload images in file chooser). You will also need to make sure that the User Role has the ability to Bypass Workflow enabled.

    Let me know if this helps!

    Hi Tim,

    Actually, the Upload Images permission is not working either it turns out. Is this because they have to Bypass Workflow? I do not want these folks to bypass workflows. Can it be set that they would bypass the workflow for just the uploading tool?

    Hi Bridget,

    Unfortunately users must have the ability to Bypass Workflows if they need to upload images/files through the chooser.
