Drag and drop upload

Hi what should I use to create a drag and drop function to upload files? Basically, I want the user to be able to drag a file from a folder then drop it on a drop zone on the website. Is this possible? Thanks in advance!


Hi @Walds :wave:

Not with the current no-code elements, no. You would need to work with external libraries.

We may integrate something like Cloudinary or Imgur to offer that option in the future but it’s not yet prioritized in our roadmap.

I’ve added your feedback to our user research so we keep it in mind!

In the meantime, you might reach out to @dorilama who is working with @kyanaloe on something similar :slight_smile:


Thank you for the feedback Joyce!

Hi @Walds :wave:

Just wanted to let you know it is now possible for users to drag and drop files when you use the file upload element in the UI kit:


@Joyce The click and drag functionality does not work for custom file types.


I am using Custom for an excel file instead of using WeWebs Excel type because the file explorer only loads the specified extensions. Your Excel type doesn’t do this.

Could you tell us what is not working? I tried on a personal project and everything is working. I get the weweb link to download the file
