    Try the UPLOAD button in the lower right? Only certain file types can be uploaded (like PDF, JPG, etc.)

    Are you maybe using the Mobile App? I think it has some limitations, but I'm not sure about UPLOADs.

    If so, can you try it from a laptop or PC? If you are already on a laptop or PC, what browser and OS are you using?
