Uploading Files or Documents


Quick Notes 💡

  • The current maximum file size for an individual document is 30Mb.
  • Uploaded files are sorted in descending order based on the date it was uploaded.

If you try and upload a type of file we can't accept, we'll let you know. At the time of writing, valid types of files we can accept are;

  • jpg, jpeg and png images

  • csv, xls, or xlsx Worksheets

  • zip

  • PDFs
  • doc or docx Microsoft Word documents
  • text/txt files
  • html, htm
  • heic

Video formats are not supported because they are typically too large, but these can be compressed into an aforementioned ZIP file.

    1. Open a client's profile (double-click on an appointment or use our universal search).
    2. Go to Records → Files.
    3. Select Choose Your Files or drag-and-drop files to the space shown.

Downloading Files or Documents

  1. Open the client's record.
  2. Click RecordsFiles and then click on the name of the document you would like to download.
  3. If it's a commonly-used type of file (like PDF or image) you'll first be able to preview the file within Power Diary without downloading first. If you are not able to preview a PDF file, please enable the PDF viewer in the browser that you are using.

Hint 💡

For example, when using Chrome

  • In the Chrome browser, select the three vertical dots in the upper-right corner.
  • Choose Settings > Advanced > Privacy and security. 
  • Select Site Settings > PDF documents.
  • Use the toggle switch next to Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome to turn the feature on and off.

Known Limitation

When previewing files on a mobile device (like an iPhone or iPad) you'll only be able to see the first page of a document you've uploaded.

If you need to see multiple pages in a document we recommend tapping on Download to open it outside of Power Diary.

Deleting Uploaded Files or Documents

    1. Open the client's record.
    2. Click on RecordsFiles and then click on the cog button in the Actions column you'd like to delete.
    3. Click OK to confirm.
