Google Document Viewer

Google document viewer is a safer way for your agents to view files attached to tickets or chats. It allows agents to open files directly through their browsers, meaning they don't have to download these files to their PCs. This is a big help when it comes to security and it also helps to protect privacy.

  • Image files (.JPEG, .PNG, .GIF, .TIFF, .BMP)
  • Video files (WebM, .MPEG4, .3GPP, .MOV, .AVI, .MPEGPS, .WMV, .FLV)
  • Text files (.TXT)
  • Markup/Code (.CSS, .HTML, .PHP, .C, .CPP, .H, .HPP, .JS)
  • Microsoft Word (.DOC and .DOCX)
  • Microsoft Excel (.XLS and .XLSX)
