But not able to find the file transfer option in agent view or in client chat window.

Please help 

Hi Arindam,

I am also facing same issue, i have added liveAgent:clientChatFileTransfer within liveAgent:clientchat but still i am not able to see option to add attachemnt from client window. 

Did you found any soultion for the issue, please share. 

Thanks In Advance
Hi ShaT, Arindam,

I have got a fix for this.

1. Navigate to Setup > Customize > Live Agent Confgurations
2. Open the Live agent Configuration you created and click edit.
3. Check Agent File Transfer Enabled
Scroll down a bit and add the respective user in Assigned Users section ( or add the profile in assigned profiles section )
[Note : If a user is assigned a configuration at the profile and user levels, the user-level configuration overrides the configuration that’s assigned to the profile]

Now login as the user added in 4th step you should find the attach files icon!

Hi - unless I am missing something this only allows the file sharing one way - i.e from customer to agent only. How do we enable it so that the agent is also able to send files to the customer ?
