I had more than a few offline inquiriess asking about attachment handling within Mindit Assist - this seems to be a 'hot' issue so I thought I would do a post covering what's possible within Mindit:
1) The your Mindit Virtual Assistant (running on your server/ desktop) will search for and send attachments automatically based on your email requests to her - something like:
email john ward <jward@AXYZ.com> <--who to send email to
about X10 specifications <--subject of email
attach X10_specs <-- file to attach
2) You don't need to know where the attachment is, she will go and find it for you.
3) Lite version is limited to one attachment per assistant reply, E1/ S1 versions can handle 9 at a time (no file size limitation)
4) Attachments can be linked to cover letters or other material (task). So, by calling a task the Assistant sends not only the attachment(s) but a customized cover letter, intro text, or even a quote. The intent is to limit the amount of typing required on your berry to get the job done, and send a professional business like reply to your customer - not just a blind attachment!
To call a task:
email john ward <jward@AXYZ.com>
do X10 <-- calls a task that send the X10 attachments + cover letter/ text
There are examples of sending attachments on the Mindit site:
Hope that answers the questions - if not, let me know.
