I have an app running using DigitalOcean App Platform that has a request that can take longer than 100s depending on user input. I’m also dependent on third party APIs so unfortunately I can’t do anything to speed up the process. However, I’ve noticed requests are always cut off after 100s with a 504/524 error. I was wondering how I can increase the timeout or do I have migrate it from App Platforms to a Droplet to configure this myself?

Indeed, there is a hard 100 seconds timeout limit for web components on the App Platform.
A possible work around here would be to outsource that logic to a serverless function deployed as part of your App Platform. With serverless functions, you can set the limit to 15 minutes:
Alternatively, you could use a Droplet where you will have root access and make any configuration changes as needed.
Hope that this helps!
