If you are having issues uploading files, please try the following first:

- Make sure you have the latest Flash player installed for your browser
- Try a different browser on your computer to make sure that it is not a problem with your current browser
- Try the Standard file upload option. This does not use Flash and will allow you to upload 3 files at one time.
- Email files to your Teamwork project (Read more...)
- If you connect to the internet using a Proxy Server, please view our list of file server addresses.
- Turning off SSL on your Teamwork account may also solve any file uploading issues you may be experiencing.
If you are still having problems and have completed the steps above, please contact us using our Support Page

View File tells the browser we would like to open the file with a helper application if it's type is registered with the browser. If a helper application is not available, the browser will just download the file.
To view specific types of files you need a helper application registered with your browser. A desktop browser requires you register a specific app to handle the file type e.g: Microsoft Office (or OpenOffice.org etc) as the helper application for your browser when it sees an office document.
Because we have no way of forcing the browser to do what we want (this is a security feature of browsers so apps can't execute malicious code) we "advise" the browser what we intend to happen with the file (either View if available or Download regardless of a plug-in)
Download File forces the browser to save the file to your computer regardless of whether a help application is registered or not.
Yes. Each project has a unique email address that allows you to send emails to the Files section of a project.
You can view/customize this email address by clicking the "Post a file via email" link on the left of the Files tab in each project under Options.
Files emailed in to your project will be added to the Inbox file category.
- There is a combined limit of 100mb per email
- Only emails sent from your email address registered on Teamwork will be accepted.
For best results you need to send the email with the files specifically attached to the email and not pasted inline in the body of the email
- For Example: If you have images from another email you want to send to your Teamwork account, save all the images to your desktop and then attach them to a new email to the files-by-email Teamwork address.
- You can append private+ to the email address to make the files private
Additional From Email Addresses
People have multiple devices and email accounts so your email address is not always the email you registered as your primary email address in Teamwork.
If you click your name in the top right and choose My Details, you can add up to 3 more alternative email addresses that you will be matched against.
Tip: Also check out this FAQ for forwarding emails from a custom email address
Do not use the file-by-email address to post files from automated systems that could generate 100's of files. Abuse of the file-by-email feature will result in suspension of the feature from your account.
- You can also use this address to send a HTML marked-up email without any file attachments which gets saved and added as a new file to your project.
To set up your Google Drive integration there are a number of steps to be followed.
1) Navigate to the settings tab in the top right (only administrators in the owner company can see this option).
2) Select site settings.
3) Select the integrations tab where you will see the Google Drive option.
4) Connect and enter your credentials for your Google Drive account and allow TeamworkPM access to your Google Drive.
5) You will then be asked to select a root folder. This is the top level folder to which your TeamworkPM account will have access to. You will not be able to navigate above this so any other files within your Google Drive account will still remain private. There can be only one root folder. We recommend creating a folder within Google Drive called TeamworkPM and then setting this as the Root. This will help you to keep your drive account organized.
6) You are ready to go.
Now that you are linked you must setup project level access for your Google Drive account.
To do this navigate to the project and select the project settings.
Here you can specify the project folder, which can be any folder housed within your root folder. Also in this section you can choose who you wish to view these files.
The options are:
- Only administrators in the Owner company
- All administrators
- All administrators and people in the owner company
- All people on this project.

- A Download button becomes active in the top right which will download files you selected.

- Depending on the file type you browser may force open the files in an application instead of saving them to disk. You might need to configure your browser file handlers if this happens to you.
