Desktop app - open text file attachments


One thing I really miss from the browser experience is being able to view text files attached to a row. PDFs display very nicely in the app with one click, but viewing txt files (which my team uses MUCH more commonly) or Word docs involves an entire process:

1) Click file name in Attachments panel.

2) Go to browser and see page saying I'm not logged in.

3) Log in to open SS in browser.

4) Find row again & open attachment in a new tab.


1) Remember to click on the ... more icon.

2) Select download file.

3) Go to Win Explorer and navigate to Downloads folder.

4) Open text file.

And I usually just need a 5 second peek at the txt/doc so having it take 10x longer to open is really annoying. 😕
