Sending files in a chat

    When using the "Lite" plan, the "Attach File" icon still appears to customers in the widget and it will simply fail to upload.

    I believe the "Attach File" feature shouldn't be available in the customer view (widget) when the feature is not available in the plan.

    Should be a rather simple if statement.

    Perhaps someone can help, when I am chatting with Zendesk support as an agent, and I try to add a screenshot to the chat window, I have been getting the following error messages 50-75% of the time for about 3 months now - no one at ZD has any idea? 

    "Upload Failed, something went wrong, please try again"

    Happens with drag and drop as well, on multiple computers

    @... The issue you are experiencing is tied to the Web Widget and I have informed that team in Melbourne about this, they are looking into it now. 

    @... That doesn't sound right and could be an issue with something on your website. I would suggest try sending the same file on the simulate widget page from the visitor list or use a tool like JSBin to load your widget snippet on a blank page and see if you still get failures sending files. If you continue to have issues, create a support ticket (email support@zendesk.com) and attach the files you were attempting to send. We can see if it is an issue with the files themselves also.

    Hi Ramin, we dont use the widget on our own support website, this behavior is concerning Zendesk Support's own chat widget  - the chat window that pops when I connect with Zendesk support after clicking HELP.  So the ZD help agent usually has to open a ticket and then I have to email screen shots, which is ridiculous.  As I mentioned, its intermittent.  At first I thought perhaps VPN related, but I disabled that and I still cant send files

    Got it and sorry that you are experiencing that on our widget. If you can replicate it often, one thing you can do to help troubleshoot why it is happening for your computers/network is record a HAR file of starting a chat and attempting to send the file. This will tell us which server you are connecting to (if its a regional or specific server that is causing problems) or if there is a rejection on the file. 

    If you need help generating a HAR file, you can look at this article: https://support.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/204410413-Generating-a-HAR-file-for-troubleshooting

    Once the file is generated, create a support ticket and we can look into this further. I just attempted multiple files through our widget and it is working fine, so we will need more information to troubleshoot this further.

    Hello Team,

    We have integrated the iOS SDK in our iOS app. While the agent sent the PDF file, the users are receiving the file name. But they not able to open and video the file. Is there any solution here?
