[Chat] Fine sharing/upload

I\'m using the Chat plugin on a project management site I have set up for my team. It works well but not being able to share files is a huge challenge. Is there a way to get this on the drawing board?

    Hello David,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your quesiton!

    Currently our Chat plugin does not support file sharing. Adding file sharing option would require some changes and additional code in plugin core so that'd be a new feature.

    If you need it urgently, you might consider posting a request for a custom development at our "Jobs & Pros" job board (please note: no WPMU DEV staff involved!) here:


    However, since you have already assigned this ticket to our "Features & Feedback" forum, we're considering it as a feature request. Let's hope that more Members of our community will support that idea so if it gets more votes, our developers might implement that in future.

    Please also consider supporting similar feature request here: https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/drag-and-drop-functionality-with-chat-plugin

    To vote for it simply "like it" or post your support voice there. The more votes it gets, the better the chance it gets implemented in the plugin :slight_smile:

    Best regards,

    Thanks Adam. As you would realise, the challenge with customizing the plugin is that it then precludes me from updating when WPMUDev updates the plugin.

    I'll just hope that it's a popular request :slight_smile:

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
