View PDF's without having to download the file
View PDF's without having to download the file, pretty self explantory.
Have many duplicate files on my desktop and downloads folder from wanting to quickly check information.
Would help not to have to go looking for the file on my desktop.
Stopping the need to redownload (creating duplicate files) to open PDF in a new browser tab in chrome.
Agreed. How do we do this?
I'm having the same problem, how can I change that?
Hello, this problem should be fixed now.
Katarzyna Karpinska How exactly can we view PDF without downloading? This should be normal feature of Zendesk IMO. I noticed in marketplace there is "PDF Viewer Pro" but it would cost, and has bad ratings.
Hi Jani Oksanen, it works pretty straightforwardly. If your browser supports this function (most of them do) and you click on a pdf link in your Help Center article it should open in a new tab.
Thank you for the reply. I found this thread on "Ticketing System":
Therefore, I'm talking of the ticketing system, and not Help Center. If customer send us PDF in ticket, we would like to view it on browser instead of downloading it.
What I have found after my earlier message and probably will help others too who struggle with same:
1. Zendesk seems to force to download, so even if you have set i.e. Chrome setting to open PDF in browser instead of download, Zendesk will force it to download. So Chrome settings will not help.
2. I found out there is Chrome extension, that can be used, and it will allow to view the PDF in browser instead of downloading it, even if the source forces it to be downloaded. Name of Chrome extension I'm using and seems to work is "No PDF Download".
Katarzyna KarpinskaIndeed the solution from Jani works but it would preferred if we did not have to add a chrome extension for this. How to force this in zendesk support?
Oh, my! My apologies to all of you, I've made a mistake. When I wrote in this post that the issue is fixed I have not realized that I was writing in a Support feedback area of our Community.
We did indeed enable opening PDFs in browser from Help Center (Guide) but this functionality doesn't extend to Support. Unfortunately, I'm not responsible for Support enhancements so I can't say when and if this issue will be solved. Once again I'm sorry for the misinformation.
Any feedback on this from a Zendesk Support PM?
This is annoying our customer service agents, they work with a lot of pdfs on daily basis and it would be great if Zendesk wouldn't force a certain browser behaviour.
Hello all, thanks for proving feedback and creating a post for this feature request.
We will continue to monitor this post for this request and prioritize next year. This feature request has been added to our backlog. Thanks!
Hi any updates on this request ? we are having to dowlaod documents and vocal messages to read/hear them, how can we just listen to them without dowling it ?
I just signed up for zendesk and was shock to see viewing PDFs was not a native feature. I’m going have to cancel now and find another help desk solution. All of our agents are constantly working with pdf documents.
