Can I set a limit for the upload size and restrict users from uploading bigger files in a Survey?

As it is possible to upload other files than an image (PDF ...), we need to restrict the maxmimum file size of the  attachment. 

We are currently using ArcGIS Survey123 Connect, version 3.12.232.

Thank you for your answers.

Looks like you can unfortunately only limit the image size. Files will be accepted up to 10 MB. (https://doc.arcgis.com/en/survey123/desktop/create-surveys/xlsformmedia.htm)

Update: looks like you can now limit file sizes using the bind::esri:parameters column and the max-size parameter

Dear dtGIS, thank you for your answer. 

I hope that ESRI will include the possibility to limit the file size directly in the Survey Connect App in the future.

Hi @Svenja-ChristinLemke1, I recommend posting to the Ideas page about this request for this functionality.

The answer in 2023 is you can use bind::esri:parameters column. For example, max-size=5 to set the limitation to 5mb
