Google Forms: File Upload Option Unavailable


Google Forms


The option to add a "File upload" question to a Google Form is greyed out.


The "File upload" option in Google Forms is not available for forms stored within a Google Shared Drive. The option is only available to forms stored within My Drive.

The form should be copied to an individuals' or shared Google account's My Drive for the "File upload" option to be available.
