Suggest File Storage Link When Uploading Email Attachments
Idea shared by Joe Davis - 5/22/2024 at 9:40 AM
It would be great if the webmail suggested using the File Storage feature when someone uploads a large file as an attachment on an email.

Or make it automatic.
One of our clients attempted to email out an event brochure for a golf outing for sponsorships. It included a bunch of high res photos that were never rescaled. The document was 75 Meg and they attempted to send it out to about 150 potential sponsors. Then I got "complaints" - "curt, email is not working." I had to explain to them what they were about to do and why we have data size limits, and that even Gmail and others do too. It would have been kicked back by every other provider out there

I think this is a great idea, and likely on our feature review list for the future already. This post is getting some traction though so I can try to bring that up in our next meeting for you. Automatically shifting the attached file to a File Storage link would certainly stop some scenarios we've seen with users trying to send 50+MB files, but I could see it being tricky to integrate with the various email clients.
