Preview email attachments

Spike’s message preview lets you view and manage attachments directly within the email. You can reply, forward, delete or star the attachment, making it easier to find later on. You can also download the attachment, but that’s a bit old school if you ask us.

File Management helps you keep track of all the images, docs, and files that get sent to your email. If you misplaced an important document you can quickly go to your library of documents and find it.

See all files by clicking the ‘🔍’ icon and selecting ‘Files’ at the top of your menu bar. This will show you every file you’ve ever sent or received. If you want to break it down even further, you can go into each specific chat to see the files that were sent there.

This depends on which Spike plan you have. If you have Spikes ‘free’ plan you have access to only 60 days of conversation history, while if you have Spikes ‘Pro’ or ‘Business’ plans you will have access to an unlimited conversation history.

Yes, all you have to do is filter your emails as ‘Unified’ and take the same steps of searching for ‘Files.’ Everything will visually show up across all email addresses.

After selecting ‘Files’ each File will show up as a visual and include the File name, the name of the sender, and where it was sent from.
