Yes, lots of news these days…! And we particularly like this one.
You already know that you can attach files to your tasks as a note. Pretty popular feature, because it’s an easy way to manage different versions of your files, related to your tasks. By the way, if you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a file attached to it, it will be automatically posted as a first note…
Back to our announcement : What if you didn’t have to download those files to view them?
It’s now a reality, we’ve partnered with Scribd (the Youtube for documents), so your files will be displayed right below the note, viewable in one click. And that’s a game changer to us, makes things much easier to work on Files and comment on files without going through the painful download process.
You still have the choice though : Download or Preview.
Here is the list supported by Scribd :
Portable Document Format (.pdf) PostScript (.ps) Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx) Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt, .pps, .pptx) Microsoft Excel (.xls, xlsx) OpenOffice Text Document (.odt, .sxw) OpenOffice Presentation Document (.odp, .sxi) OpenOffice Spreadsheet (.ods, .sxc) All OpenDocument formats Plain text (.txt) Rich Text Format (.rtf) And we added Pictures (.jpg, .png, .gif…)
So, how do you like this one?
