Update by email now supports attachments and inline images

As you may know, we are working* on adding ability to create new tasks, issues, discussions and upload new files to Freedcamp by emailing them in. However, our feature allowing you to update Freedcamp by replying to Freedcamp’s email notifications did not support attachments and inline images. Today we released it and it is best in class. Why? We not only parse attachments in your replies but we also parse all inline images and upload them to Freedcamp too and add inline into your comment.

Below you can see a reply containing one file attached and one inline image copy/pasted to my message in GMail:

Reply by email to Freedcamp

Now you can see how it was parsed and posted to Freedcamp – you have your inline image in place but it is also uploaded and shown as an attachment in your posted by email comment:

Reply by email posted - links and inline images are parsed

You can also see that all my links in email were conveniently converted making them easy to follow from Freedcamp.

* Update Apr 11, 2017: Emailing into Freedcamp to create new items is implemented now.
