Attachment Viewer

Attachment Viewer offers a single consolidated view of all the attachments received. This mainly addresses the issue of attachment disorder due to numerous emails and forwards. 

 Centralized view

Attachment viewer consolidates the emails from all the applications in a single place. You can view the attachments sent to you by email, or shared to you via Streams or added in your Tasks or Notes in the centralized view.  The files are neatly sorted based on their types:

  • Images
  • Documents
  • Media Files
  • Compressed Files and 
  • Other types
You can also select the view of your choice from the Thumbnail view and List view options from the top right corner of your inbox.

 File Preview:

You can select any thumbnail to preview the attachments. They can be previewed directly without having to download the entire attachments. Also, if the files attached are Documents/ Spreadsheets or Presentations, you can directly view the attachments using the embedded SkyDesk Writer/ Sheet/ Show applications.


The attachment viewer can also be used to directly preview the media files, in case you receive a video or audio file attachment. Only the compressed files and certain other types of files need to be downloaded to view them. Such attachments cannot be previewed.

 Quick Actions:

You can mark an attachment as a favorite, directly open the linked email, send a new email with the attachment, upload the file to cloud or add a tag to the attachment from thumbnail view itself. 

All the quick actions are also available in the Preview Attachment mode. Further, you can search and list the other attachments from the sender or list all the attachments of the same type from the Preview mode.
