Adding an attachment to a message (iOS mobile client)

Last updated:

You can add an attachment to a message with the following ways:

  • Tap the paper clip icon below the message box to take a new camera shot or select a file from your local device.

  • Drag and drop images and files from another app. This works on devices supporting iOS multitasking, e.g. on iPAD with iOS 11 or later.

  • Share to Circuit a file from another application on your device that allows content sharing (like Photos). For more information you may refer to Share to Circuit from your mobile device.

A message can have a maximum of 10 attachments.

  1. To add an attachment:
    1. Create a new message or edit an existing message.
    2. Tap the paper clip icon below the message box.
    3. Select the file that you want to attach:
      • Tap Camera to use your device's camera to take a new photo or video camera shot. When you are satisfied with the shot, tap Use Photo or Use Video.

      • Tap Photo and video library to pick a photo or video from your device's library. When you finish selecting files, tap Done.

      • Tap Document to pick a document from iCloud Drive or other apps such as Google Drive and Dropbox.

    4. When you are attaching a photo, choose one of the following options for the photo resolution: Original, Large, Medium or Small.

     

    On devices supporting iOS multitasking, you can alternatively drag text, images and files from (and to) another app as follows:

    1. Run Circuit and the app that you want to drag content from in multitasking split screen.
    2. Drag text, images or files from the other app and drop them into a message box within Circuit.

      You can drag and drop multiple items at the same time.

      The text is appended to the message, while images and files are added as attachments to the message.
    3. When you are attaching a photo, choose one of the following options for the photo resolution: Original, Large, Medium or Small.

    A preview of the attachment(s) is displayed.

  2. To remove an attachment before sending the message, tap the attachment and then tap in the upper-left corner of the attachment.
  3. To send the message with the attachment(s) to the conversation, tap .

    When a Bluetooth keyboard is attached to your device you can alternatively press Enter on your keyboard.
