Fetch attachment type: file from salesforce records
As of now using "Get file from a record" in NWC able to get collection of files of type : attachment. It would be nice if this can fetch attachment type: file also from salesforce. I guess in future salesforce releases the type:attachment may not be supported moving forward to Lightning in salesforce.
Let me know if you need any more info.

Hi Martin, noted. I'm also aware of your correspondence with our team. We'll reach out to you once we have a firm timeline on when we plan to support it.

Yes all points per Sri above are agreed, and additionally given files can be significantly larger then attachments (max size attachment = 25mb, max size file = 2 gb) most of us prefer to use files. Looking forward to this enhancement!
We plan to support SFDC files but there is no exact timeline for availability.

Currently we are using Nintex Drawloop document package to generate and attach powerpoint document to attachments. Looking forward on future releases of salesforce. We will be using drawloop package to generate and attach powerpoint document to files. Can you tell us by which NWC release this will be available?
Thanks for your question. We are aware of this situation and are looking into supporting files in addition to attachments. Are you only using files via the Lightening experience or do you use a mix of files and attachments?
