The File Upload Field Type lets your users/customers upload files directly within the form.
For instance: Upload CV, Passport, Proposal, etc.
File Upload Fields allow users to attach files to their form submissions, such as photos, PDFs, or other documents. You are only permitted to upload up to 256 MB of data per file upload field. This limit cannot be increased because we use browser-based file uploads, which will time out when larger files are uploaded.
