[SOLVED] Implement Mobile Client Upload/Download Files

Client iOS version 1.5.2.

Mattermost web already supports upload and download files.

The mobile clients also need this feature. high priority.

I’ve created a feature request. please vote.

Hi @RbDev,

Thanks for the feedback and feature request,

I’m sure you should be able to upload files by clicking the + in the message input box? You’ll need to give the app permissions to access your camera, files, pictures, etc

You can add pictures but not files at this stage. that is a must have feature.

Hi @RbDev,

Ah, ok - I’m testing on an unreleased version so the feature is on the way - just not released yet :slight_smile:

Oh awesome. That’s great news.

Hi @lindy65,

Is there a release date for that new version?



We’re trying for March 26th but that date is not set in stone yet… :slight_smile:

That’s great news. Fingers crossed.

Hi @lindy65

iOS client version 1.7 is out but I don’t see the new features.

Did something go wrong with the deployment?

Ah, sorry if I was unclear… Some features are still only available in our beta app… If you’d like to sign up for testing, you can follow this link

It seems the app version change log is incorrect.
It says upload files was implemented.

@RbDev - when you say uploading files, do you mean uploading from the Files app in iOS 11?

If so, we have a ticket here to add support for it and I believe it’s queued to be worked on soon: https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/MM-10297

yes. of course it is. do you really have to ask? read out loud what you have written.
