- [Instructor] So I have some good news,…and I have some bad news,…and then I have some good news,…and then some bad news.…Spark lets you quickly add files to your chats.…This lets you store pertinent documents, images, etc.,…inline, in your conversations,…so that they make sense in context.…As we've shown before,…to add a file, you just click the attachment icon,…and then you select your file,…click open, and the file will be installed.…
And you'll see a nice little thumbnail of the image…right in the conversation thread.…Now if you click the thumbnail,…a preview will open up…so that you can see it in more detail.…Most Microsoft Office and Google files…will be completely visible,…as will PDFs,…and you can scroll through page after page.…According to Cisco, you can use any kind of a picture file,…except the TIFF,…and add files up to two gigabytes in size,…which is pretty darn big.…
And, you can even put in animated GIFs…that will play automatically as long as you keep them small,…under two megabytes.…However, something that you can't do is edit the file.…
