Store Documents in Alerts and Cases

Uploading Documents

When using the Dashboard, you have the option to add a document such as an image, a PDF, or a text file to an Alert or a Case.

Documents can be uploaded to:

  • The Unit21 Amazon S3 bucket (a protected cloud based storage service)
  • Your Google Drive

Unit21 Amazon S3

  • There are no limitations or setup needed to upload alert and case files to the Unit21 storage for your needs.

Your Google Drive

  • The Google Drive requires that your organization's administrator set it up. It is used organization wide, it is not to be used on a per-agent basis.
  • To setup the Google Drive, head to Data Management, select Integrations and add your Google Drive Folder URL.
  • The Google Drive only works if your organization uses the Google log-in (not magic link or other SSO) to access the Dashboard.
  • Google docs attached to an Alert and/or Case are not downloadable.


A maximum of 100 files are supported per alert/case.

If you think your workflow may require this limit to be raised, please contact your CSM.


Unit21 supports any file type and file size.
