File Attachment

iOS - If you select a file attachment, a new browser window opens and attempts to display the content. If there is an app registered to handle the content, a dialog displays asking if you want to open the attachment in that app.  If the device does not have an app registered to handle that file type, a message displays indicating that the device cannot open the specified file type. When you close the message, you see an empty browser window.  Close the window to return to the Quick Base record.

Android - The Android operating system supports downloading various types of files, depending on the applications that you have installed on your smartphone or tablet.  If you select a file attachment, and the device has an app registered to handle that file type, it downloads the file (which can then be opened in the Downloads app or from the notifications bar from the device's home screen). If the device does not have an app registered to handle that file type, a message displays indicating that the content is not supported and asks if you would still like to download to the file.    

Android - The Android operating system supports uploading various types of files, depending on the applications that you have installed on your smartphone or tablet.  Buttons to upload files are enabled, and you can upload file types that are supported on your specific device.
