or The long way of the file attached to the mail

An email ping pong with a file of some mega. We are the fans of the files sent attached to the mail. What's on the mail is not lost! I sent you, you received, we both have the same version. Only until one of us remembers there are some changes to make. And he starts to do it, letting the other work on a version that is out of date. At least until the next update, when do you send a new version by mail, how many? I also make a briefing of changes, because some of us later find the "Track-Changes" functionality of editors.

This is until the document reaches its final shape. An exchange of emails with attachments between editors. It then goes to approval, most of all by mail. If this was an instruction or a wider rule of intent, it also gets into the mailbox of others.

Does it happen to you often? Each time something changes in a document of interest, it is "cast" by mail.

I do not want to discuss the perspective of storage space. I'm sure there's great "joy" in the IT support departments every time they receive "quota" complaints. Or messages such as "this mail is hard to go, as if it's a snail, do something!"

It's a way of working with which we are all accustomed. <Click-Right> on the <Send-to> <Mail-Recipient> or similar file in the mail application. It's a routine that we have applied for years, and we will only change it when we become aware of how unproductive it is in comparison to other options.

Technologies have evolved and provide us with a whole range of tools to help them better, more efficiently. Create a unique reference to a document after uploading the file to the company server or cloud platforms (OneDrive, GoogleDrive, Dropbox, etc.). I'll be able to view and edit (sometimes even synchronous) with my colleagues without it being emailed. Only the reference to this file, a banal link of negligible size, gets on the mail.

All those whom the document is addressed will have always have access whenever they need the latest version of the document, the one that matters, the one that is really relevant. Not having N in previous N versions, but just a link.

"I worked in a document and I do not know what happened, but did not save the changes" becomes history ...
