File Uploads

The File Uploads option allows you to define the file formats that users upload to the Hub. Users can upload audio files, video files, images, presentations, spreadsheets, and more. By default, Bigtincan supports a number of file formats. Additionally, you can add new file formats and delete the file formats that you don't require. Navigate from Platform Configuration > Files > File Uploads

Any video that is uploaded to the Hub is converted and optimized for a better viewing experience. If users choose to download videos, the downloaded videos will be in the optimized MP4 format.
