Is there a way to attach files to messages in myASQ?

Posted by Dan Burrows on Nov 19, 2018 11:38 am

In the myASQ messages where you can send messages to people, it has the ability to attach pictures and videos, but not files.

Is this intentional?  Can it be set so that you can attach files to send to others because we need this capability if we are to use myASQ as the focal point of all things ASQ.

Thanks,
Dan

Dan Burrows‍ it looks like private messaging is primarily intended for quick and easy communication within the community. I think it's assuming content shared resides somewhere in the community or can otherwise be shared with a link (more like Messenger than Outlook).

It's not currently an option, but could be a feature request if clients are looking for it. I'd love to hear more how you and others expect private messaging to work.

I would like to be able to attach files such as .pdf, PowerPoint, Word, Excel, etc. if I am exchanging information through myASQ with a colleague.  Let's say that someone is interested in me sending them a training presentation.

It just seems odd that I can attach pictures and videos to a message but not a MS Office type of file.  I do recommend that this be a feature request.  Otherwise, folks needing to do this would have to go outside of myASQ and I thought the point of myASQ was to provide the means to communicate and exchange information within myASQ to funnel people to myASQ.
