Clover allows you to upload files into your documents to reference, preview, or just to store for later. Files are their own unique type of block that allow for previewing some types of files directly within your documents but also allow opening in a new tab or downloading directly to your computer.

File Uploading

There are a few ways to add files to Documents or Surfaces:

  • Drag files into your Document or Surface directly from your computer.
  • Within Documents type /file to trigger a file upload dialog.
  • Copy and paste files directly from your computer.

File Previews

Certain file types provide rich previews that can be viewed directly within your Document or Surface. You can always toggle the preview on or off by clicking the eyeball icon on the File block. File types that can be previewed include:

  • Videos
  • Audio clips
