Email Attachments


Recommended Posts

No the user will have replied from outlook or another similar type mailbox.  The message updates the timeline but there's no attachment.  So if someone responds to an email received in outlook does the attachment just not come through?

@SJEaton ah, I understand... it means the AR - autoresponder (routing rules) processed the email and it was automatically added to the request... in this case then no, the AR it won't process the attachments, is not currently designed to do so :(

Keep in mind that that full email is accessible from the timeline, including the attachments. On the Timeline entry you can use the 'More Actions' menu item and there will be an option to view the entire email.   We have a planned change that will identify emails in the timeline that have attachments by displaying a paperclip icon.  For quick access to the emails in the timeline, you can use the Timeline filter and select that it only shows updates of the type 'Email'.

The challenge with automatically adding attachments when using the Email Routing Rules is that it would add all attachments including those that people add to their email signatures.  When we first looked at this we found that in a few short emails between the customer and the support staff that the attachments section was filling up with unwanted attachments, in some cases hundreds of attachments as the automated email updates were applied.  At the moment you still have the opportunity to look at the full email and then save and upload just the attachments that you wish to include in the main attachments section.

Hi @James Ainsworth

Your solution "More Actions - View Email" works fine ( if you want it as an attachment "apply to request") so thanks for this.

Only one small issue, its not obvious, so the attachment icon would be perfect.

Hi, is there any news on when the attachment icon will be available for the Emails within the timeline as it's difficult to see the wood through the trees on some calls due to the amount of information that's automatically added (activities for one).
