I recently installed a Chrome extension that didn't do exactly what I wanted. I uninstalled it and promptly forgot about it until the following email exchange happened:
FROM BEN COE, THE CO-FOUNDER OF THE EXTENSION ATTACHMENTS.ME:
Hey Andrew, Ben here. I'm one of the cofounders of Attachments.me:
I've been reaching out to some of the people who signup for our
service, I'd love to know how things are going for you.
Any feedback you can provide about how the service is working for you
so far, would be awesome. Also, I'd love to hear any suggestions you
have for the product.
Thanks for taking the time to try us out :)
Thanks for getting in touch.
I uninstalled it. All I really needed was my attachments to appear on the right of the email *and* be
downloadable from the right panel. My only option was to transfer to dropbox (I use cloud app) or open the
attachments.me window and browse for the relevant attachment.
If you guys enable the attachments on the right to be downloadable directly I'll re-install straight away.
CloudApp support would also be great.
Hey, thanks for the quick response :)
I'm curious, what do you see as the advantage to being able to download the attachment on the right-hand side, as
oppose to being able to download it in the area provided below the email. Is it that we could consolidate all the
attachments in the thread into one area?
Would love to get you back on board,
When receiving emails from some people, GMail doesn't recognize the thread. It incorrectly assumes the reply's
are part of the email. So some emails get ridiculously long, and I have to scroll forever downwards to get to the
download link. When I first installed attachments.me, I was stoked, as I could see all the attachments relevant
to the thread on the right...but they were static names, not links :(
Would it be hard to turn those static titles into attachment links?
In short Ben reached out to me, without being contacted and implemented the change I had been looking for, and he did it in minutes.
That makes sense. I think you're right, it would be smart for the name of the attachment to allow you to
I've added this feature to the extension, if you install the newest version here:
it should do the trick.
Keep the feedback coming,
