Configuring file size options for the Attach content control

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

To limit the size of files that the user attaches to a mobile app, for example to conserve bandwidth during synchronization, you can configure attachment compression parameters, such as video clip format, video clip duration, maximum image size, and maximum image quality.

Configuring attachment compression parameters can help you limit the size of files that are transferred between a mobile device and the server. Selecting the Infinite option means that files are attached in their original format or length, which results in increased data transfer. Smaller resolution, shorter times, and the lesser quality, all help reduce the size of the file, which results in decreased data transfer duration. The settings apply when a user records a new video or takes a new photo, but do not apply to pre-recorded media. Media files are compressed on the device before they are uploaded to the server.

Attaching large files might fail even if you select options other than Infinite to limit the size of attachments, when configuring video clip format and duration, or image size and quality. This might occur due to memory limitations of the device.
