Attaching files and documents

Pyrus supports sharing attachments of any file type. Attach files directly to the task description or to comments.

From a computer

There are two ways to attach a file that you have saved on your computer:

  • Click the paperclip icon and browse to find the file.

  • An even easier way is to simply drag the file into the task window.

From cloud services

Integration with Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, and Microsoft OneDrive allows you to attach files stored in these cloud systems via a special dialog box.

Each of these integrations has its own set of access rights associated with their files. Our integration does not change your files’ access rights whatsoever, so you may also need to share the file with your colleagues after attaching it to a task.

Pyrus Tip: If your files are stored in the cloud, copy the file link and paste it into the comment field.

From the clipboard

Another way to share an image is to paste it from the clipboard. This is especially useful when you want to attach a screenshot to a task.

Save the image to the clipboard, go to the comment field on the task page and press Ctrl + v (Command + v). Pyrus will create a file name on the fly and add it to the task.

Viewing files attached to a task

When you attach a file, it will appear in the task history and in the Files section of the info panel.

Pyrus has a built-in file viewer supporting DOC, XLS, PPT, PDF, PNG, JPEG, GIF, MP4 and OGV files, letting you preview documents, images or video attached to tasks without downloading them.

Just click on a file’s icon to preview it.

You can also select the Preview mode in the menu next to the file name.

The attachment opens up in a pop-up window. Here you can browse through multi-page files and switch between attachments using the arrows or by clicking the pages on the left.

Uploading several file versions to a task

When you’re approving a design or an illustration in Pyrus, you usually end up with several versions of the same document in a task and it can be hard to differentiate them from one another.

To avoid any mix-ups, upload the updated versions of your document by clicking on the file icon next to the original document.

Each file uploaded this way will have a version number beside it.

This only works for tasks created from a form.

Available disk space

All paid Pyrus plans come with 100 GB of cloud storage space. You can check how much space is left in the Organization section.

Disk Space Used shows how much disk space your company is using.

You can purchase more disk space at any time. Please contact us for details.
