I have a user with permissions to particular folders on a site. The roles, both global and site roles, allows them to bypass workflow, and to upload images in file chooser. However, I want them to be able to upload files using New>>Default>>File, but it only shows New>>Message.

    It sounds as if the group that these users belong to do not have access to the "File" Asset Factory. You can make the AF applicable to the group by navigating to the File AF, and select the group in which the users belong to. This should resolve your issue.

    Please let me know.

    Thanks. It worked out once I figured out I also had to give them access to the Default folder also in Asset Factories.
