Some attachments are previewable in the same tab (e.g. image files and PDF). We can also add feedback to images and PDF files.
Some attachments are previewable in a new tab (e.g. sound and video files, and files from external storage such as Google Drive).
Some attachments cannot be previewed and need to be downloaded (e.g. Word/Excel docs, emails, etc.).
Is there a full list of categories of the previewable file types and extensions (in the same/different tab)?
that is due to the ability of the browser to open those files in preview mode
I see. That clearly answered my question!
So, I think the attachments fall under one of the two categories:
Images and PDF: Asana implements preview + feedback
Other file types: It depends on the browser’s behavior
I added that extension to Chrome and it’s very useful to save one step of “work about work”
I especilaly like that it doesn’t add the Word/Excel files to Google Drive when we just only want to preview them. I was worried that it might save the files to Google Drive so I would need to delete them after opening for preview.
