Support Tickets: Include attachments from Blesta admin to clients in their inbox

ewh shared this idea 5 years ago

Whenever a support ticket is sent with an attachment to a client, please include the attachment in the customers inbox.

I know it has been discussed and I can understand and appreciate the concept when an attachment is sent to us as Blesta admins but we're never going to attach a virus and send it to our clients.

Some attachments may be too large to email. How do you suggest this is handled?

I don't know much about it but I'm guessing there is some sort of a standardized size limit? I know I run into that issue through regular email as well.

I think Blesta could set a default size limit with an alert to the admins about the size restriction. Most of the time (for us anyways), it's a screenshot that we want to send to someone.

Email clients like Yahoo or Gmail will accept file sizes as large as 10MB.

As an admin, I am pretty certain that we will know not to send huge files. And if a huge file were sent the admin would be notified when their email receives a bounced message.

The ability to attach files to ticket replies to the client is a great idea.

This would be a great improvement! Not having clients to login to see the attachment is very helpfull specially when clients are using their phone to check ad reply to tickets what is the majority of my clients.

So as EnvolveWebHosting said, we could setup a custom limit on the backend (ex: 10 or 20MB). In case the attachment is too large for a specific email box, the email will simple be returned back as bounce.

You can add support for Amazon S3 and S3 compatible storage providers for file attachment uploads.

For clarity . . .

Does this mean that the clients will receive ticket attachments from the admin in their Blesta inbox within the support ticket ?

Will they also . . .

Receive the ticket attachments in their Gmail and Yahoo email addresses too ?

Or is it just going to appear
