CSV files not allowed as attachments on the Forum

Why are csv files not allowed as attachments to Forum messages while xlsx are? Given their relative risk, I don't see the logic in that policy.

Full disclosure: I did have to make a change today to allow CSV files.  Pretty sure we had it working at one point, but it must have gotten "undone" by some file-attachment gremlin.

 

As Shelley says, try it again.  Let us know if it doesn't work.

Sounds appropriate for the Community Suggestion Box.

Hi, All,

 

CSV files are a valid attachment type in the communities. I tried it out just this morning to make sure it works, since we added that functionality some time back.

 

Try it and see for yourself. But warning, @ChrisHemedinger says he draws the line at Paradox files. So, don't even ask. Smiley Happy

@ChrisHemedinger Don't you just love when auto-update to software resets your customizations?
