[Status: Not planned] Preview Attachment as text

We use Wrike to track programming projects, and in cases where we need to attach a code file, it would be nice to be able to preview those files without downloading them. The problem is that, even though these files are plain text files, they have extensions to do with whatever language they are (.c, .sql, .aspx), and these extensions aren't recognized by Wrike, even though in theory they could be treated just like a txt file.

It would be nice to be able to either specify, in settings, any extensions that should be treated as plain text, or a single link on the preview option to view as plain text, regardless of type.

To clarify, I understand that Wrike is not a version control platform, and we do not use it to maintain our code base, but there are multiple instances where code may need to be run once (say to correct a data inconsistency) and we want to keep the code that was run on record.

Hi Lee Richards, thanks for posting your idea here! As it got 60+ upvotes, I checked with the Product team, and for now this is not planned by them. I'll let you know if that changes.
