With CloudFiles you can view files online (e.g. doc, pdf, excel etc...) as well as track downloads of non-renderable files such as exe, zip etc...
CloudFiles allows its users to upload any type of file. This means literally any format in the world can be uploaded into the content library and viewed online through a secure and trackable CloudFiles links.
The app mainly differentiates between 2 types of files -
Renderable Files (Viewing Files Online)
These are files that can be rendered and viewed in the browser. E.g. consider a word document. If you upload a. ".doc" file into the content library, CloudFiles will generate a link to that file. On opening that link, you will be able to view the word file online, inside the browser itself and can scroll and read through.
Renderable files are supported for images, videos, readable files (docs, PDFs), slides etc... If you find a file format that should be renderable in the browser but is not supported by CloudFiles, reach out to us on email@example.com and we may add support soon.
Non-renderable Files (Track File Downloads)
These are non readable files for which "viewing online in a browser" does not make much sense. This can include an exe or a zip file. CloudFiles directly downloads this file onto the viewer's system and tracks the file download. Thus, you can still upload any type of file into the library and track analytics.
If you find a file format that is not supported by CloudFiles, reach out to us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we may add support soon.
