Do not put an additional file size limit on top of Microsoft size limit Nintex Forms 365 allows attaching a file of 250MB (Microsoft limit)
Remove additional file size limit on top of Microsoft size limit
Nintex Forms 365 allows attaching a file of 250MB (Microsoft limit) to a list item.
But the action 'O365 Upload File' in Nintex Workflow 365 currently has a size limit of 100MB compressed size.
This limit should be removed; Nintex should not put additional file size limits on top of Microsoft limits.
Our busines case is as follows :
I have external users uploading files, via NF365, which are attached to a list item.
The file size limit = 250MB.
An internal user is approving the uploaded file, which must then be moved to a document library.
This is done with the action 'O365 Upload File', which is compressing the file before uploading it to the document library.
However, there is a 100MB limit put on that action by Nintex.
Nintex Support suggests that my external users compress the files and that we validate in Nintex Forms that the size must be smaller than 100MB
1. I do not want to allow compressed files (e.g.ZIP) because of security reasons
2. this is not realistic because compression ratios are entirely different depending on the original file type.
