Now you can use your existing document files — such as PDFs, Word documents, Excel sheets, and Powerpoint decks – and distribute them to employees using your app.
Upload and attach one or more files up to 100 MB to an article post so that your users can download the attachment. Every uploaded file is scanned to ensure it is safe for users to download and stored securely in our AWS S3 server.
The attachment can be accessed and downloaded by a user with access to your program. Even if you mark the article as shareable, the attached files can only be accessed by signed in members.
At this time, uploaded files cannot be disabled for download and metrics on download history are not available.
Supported File Types
- .doc (Microsoft Word)
- .pdf (Adobe)
- .xls (Microsoft Excel)
- .ppt (Microsoft PowerPoint)
- .ics (Calendar)
- Note: .ics files will open in the user’s local calendar app. Tapping or clicking an .ics file does not prompt the user to download Outlook.
