What file types are supported by JIDS?

The JIDS viewer supports the following file types: 

  • PDF (.pdf)
  • JPG (.jpg)
  • BMP (.bmp)
  • TIF (.tif and .tiff)
  • Word (.doc and .docx)
  • Excel (.xls and .xlsx)

If a user uploads an unsupported file type, the file will not be displayed in the viewer. Instead, the user will see the following message: 


Selecting "Open" for an supported file type will prompt the user to download the file which will open outside of JIDS. Depending on the file type, the user attempting to view the file may or may not have a software program that supports the file.

Please upload only supported file types so all users can view the file contents.
