Custom restrictions of file types that user can upload to a document library.
SharePoint Online. We really need to set some restrictions of file types that user can upload to a document library.
For example, to deny upload file with extension .bmp and .tiff.
Thanks for your feedback. We were wondering if you asked for this control only on Team sites or OneDrive for Business as well?
Please provide a solution for blocking specific file types in SharePoint team sites.
Also the OneDrive is not effective. Users are still able to upload file types that have been added to the blocked list.
need this functionality asap

Restricting file types is valuable for many of us on a per library basis to prevent editable documents from being posted. It can also be used to prevent users from posting files types that perhaps they are the only ones who are able to edit (not by permission settings, but with the actual software used to edit). I don't see this as necessary in OneDrive...but definitely see it as incredibly valuable for SharePoint...and Teams in turn since it relies on SharePoint on the backend.

How long we need to wait for this?

Hello...we're looking for the same functionality and I'm also shocked that this is not currently an option. There is a way to do this for OneDrive but not for Sharepoint or Teams. We're looking to prevent upload of media files (mp3, avi, etc.).
Thanks for your feedback. I was wondering if you asked for this control only on Team sites or OneDrive for Business as well?
- Document Libraries, Per SItes, Teams-Office 365 Groups, OneDrive for Business per User

Please add "file screen" functionality to SharePoint Online similar to the one available on Windows Servers (2013, 2016, 2019). If you can add entire "File Server Resource Management" functionality to SharePoint Online it would be even better!!!!
It would be great if the file type exclusion restrictions can be set up on account on OneDrive and SharePoint by Sites, as well as reports in Office 365 portal for different services to be configured an email account to be mailed.
We wish to have this option as well. Limiting the sync can be bypassed.

This should be a simple file type restriction option...

I'm curious as your questions have been answered in this thread why we have not heard anything back? We have the ability to restrict file types in One Drive now but we still can't for Site Collections or Team Sites. It's really time consuming and costly for us to waste time tracking down all the "incidents" purely because we can't block exe, zip, etc.
Simon Marshall commented
We would like to be able to specify which file types cannot be uploaded by user type i.e. staff or students. it is mainly .exe files that we would like to block however having to ability to block other file types would make sense.
Please add the file type restricition feature on Site and Library level as well
Team sites, teams private channel sites, OneDrive are a must to be able to restrict file types. Ideally have the ability on all site templates.
Bump. Please work on adding this at site level and document library level.

I want it available on all document libraries, both those in Teams sites and non-team sites.
Awaiting Feature to Block executable from Sharepoint, I thought we were supposed to be safe on the cloud!
Please give us the ability to block certain file types to SharePoint Online & Teams!
Please add File type restrictions to Libraries in SPO. Why this is not available I don't know, especially for sensitive organisations.
Ruben Hugo commented
We have a large number of customers (especially in Local Government and Police Forces) where File Type controls are critical.
Please implement the following configurable file extension blocking functionality in SharePoint Online:
(1) globally blocked file extensions (such as Executable files) applied across all Site Collections - similar to those available in SharePoint Server 2019
(2) per Site Collection file extension blocking rules (that override the global rules) to allow for appropriate Business Use cases where, for example, media files are only permitted in certain Site Collections
