It's easy to send a file to your chat partner. Here is one way to do this.
Your system administrator determines whether or not you are allowed to send and receive files and, if so, whether virus scanning is enabled. The system administrator also determines the maximum file size that you can send. In addition, if you and the recipient of the file do not both have IBM
® Release 7.5 or higher software, some functionality may not be available. For example, there may be no reference to virus scanning or the file type during the transfer and the chat transcript may not include a link to the file.
This feature is only available if your organization has an Sametime
Standard or Advanced software license.
- In an open chat window, drag the file from your desktop or file manager to the message entry field in the chat window.
- Click Send to send the file to your chat partner.
After you send the file, your chat partner can accept or decline the file and, if accepted, select a file name and location for the file.
