file attachment: copy&paste and drag&drop would be great

Community Member

I am working with files in 1Password. I have configuration files including certificates used to authenticate to a VPN. As the environment where the VPN config is used is non persistent, I always download the file locate it in the Explorer and copy it to the target environment. Afterward I delete the temporary downloaded file. For security reasons I hope not to forget the file in the Download folder. Maybe an additional option to delete the file for securit reasons within X minutes would be great, too.

1Password Version: 8.10.8
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Windows 10

  • Hello @Andreas2,

    Thanks for your message. I can understand the need to ensure these files are deleted afterwards and do not remain on your device once downloaded from 1Password.

    Maybe an additional option to delete the file for securit reasons within X minutes would be great, too.

    As the file is downloaded and saved to your device, it wouldn't be possible for 1Password to delete that file, unless I'm misunderstanding your request.

    While I don't have further news to share right now, the team is looking in to how image previews could be implemented in to the app in the future. I'd be happy to pass your feedback along to the Product team if you'd find this a helpful alternative.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Hello @ag_mike_d
    thanks for your feedback. Shouldn't it be possible to do this with the windows executable version to detect where it wrote to?

    The other features that would improve it, would be the copy&paste or drag&drop to be able to transfer it almost directly to a remote session. For example RDP requires copy&paste and TeamViewer requires drag&drop to transfer files.

  • Hello again @Andreas2,

    Once a file is downloaded from 1Password, it is outside of our control and we only take action when requested to do so. Continuing with your current process of removing those files from your device manually when you are finished with them, is the best course of action.

    With regard to the other improvements you'd like to see when working with files across remote sessions, I've passed those details along to the Product team for consideration, if possible.

    Please let us know if you have any other suggestions to make. Thanks!
