Upload files

Files can be uploaded to Neebo using the 'Add new' button button on the home page, the 'Add' button button from inside a Workspace, or by simply dragging and dropping files directly into the browser window on most pages.


Any files you upload will live in your company's Neebo environment and all the other Neebo users in your organization will be able to read and use them in their own work. Please consider the confidentiality of files before uploading them to Neebo.

File types#

Any type of file can be uploaded to Neebo. Depending on what type of file is uploaded, Neebo will turn it into either a dataset or a document.

Files in CSV, XLS/XLSX/XLSB, JSON, and Parquet formats become datasets in Neebo and can be viewed and interacted with inside a Workspace's Workbench. All other formats (including PDF, DOC, and image files) are handled as documents.

General considerations#

  • Name - Cannot contain the backtick (`) character or begin with either a space or an underline (_) character.
  • File size - Files up to 1Gb are supported by default. Larger CSV or Parquet files can be stored on S3 and connected to Neebo from there.
  • Data size - Dataset files with more than 512 columns will not upload to Neebo. Datasets containing more than 3 million rows will upload but are not processed by Neebo and will display with an error (warning triangle - yellow) next to their names (see Datasets for details).

JSON files#

Well-formed JSON files are parsed automatically so that keys become column names while values, including nested JSON values, become records. A log-style JSON file where every line is a JSON object is parsed into multiple records.
