How do I attach files in Egnyte folders to an email?

I am in the trial review of Egnyte and trying to figure out how to access a file in a folder on my server without downloading it.  Any ideas of how to attach a file straight from a folder on my Egnyte server?

@Greg Pendley If you use Microsoft Outlook for Windows, you can install Egnyte Office Plug-in to achieve this.  If you use other email applications, you can achieve this by using Egnyte Connect Desktop App, where you can have right click (Windows) or double click (Mac) and be able to share from the desktop.

How is this done via the mobile app? So far I only see the option to send links and we would like the ability to attach documents to Outlook via the mobile app.

Hi @aking --

Files can be attached from Egnyte's mobile app depending on the mail application being used. For example, Gmail (Android) and Samsung's native Email (Android) apps are capable of accessing contents directly through Egnyte's mobile app for file attachment.

However, the same Gmail app for iOS does not offer the same interapp flexibility as the Android version. As an alternative, the Egnyte Mobile App for iOS offers the option to [Open In] the target file to various locally available applications. This includes the [Save to Files] option for local storage, or any viable application that supports the [Open In] request, such as, Gmail and Mail.
