Admins can attach files to an SR, using the control in the Attachments field in an SR form. This can be helpful for attaching log files or images, gifs, or videos that illustrate the issue that the user is experiencing.

Here’s what the old attachments UI looks like:



This functionality has been significantly upgraded in the latest release. For starters, the attachments are now displayed in attractive icons that indicate the file type instead of just the text of the file name.



Furthermore, admins need not download files to view them. SysAid now offers a gallery view that allows admins to quickly preview the attached files directly in the SR Form.



But perhaps most importantly, admins can now drag and drop files directly into the Attachments area for a faster and more pleasant user experience.



This is all in keeping our focus on providing a cleaner, more modern UI, a more pleasant user experience, and finding ways to help you work more efficiently.


For more information about fields in the SR form, please see our online help.

Are PDF attachments viewable?
Will this thread soon have the drag-n-drop feature?

After testing I have answered my own question.
No, PDF's are not viewable. I successfully performed the new drag-n-drop (thanks great update) of two files, one a PDF the other a PNG. The PNG was viewable where the PDF was not.

The reference to log files was as an example for drag&drop feature But we hear you! More types are planned for expanding this feature.

We are on 19.3.12b6 and do not see the new UI for attachments. Is there something we need to do?

Hey guys,

During our investigation on why some customers cannot see the new control, we've made some changes in Cloud last week. Can you confirm you can see the new control?

Thanks,
Danny

Hi,

Can you upgrade to the latest On-Premise (19.2.32), and report back on whether it's fixed?

Thanks,
