We were looking to migrate to Files as a first step to prep for a Lightning migration and noticed a potential useful setting:
"Files uploaded to the Attachments related list on records are uploaded as Salesforce Files, not as attachments"
(Customize > Salesforce Files > Settings > General Settings)
I noticed that when when this setting is enabled it does not behave as expected. In fact it performs the opposite as it describes. It creates an Attachment when uploading a File as opposed to creating a File when uploading a legacy Attachment.
Is this the expected behavior... it seems backwards to me? Why would I enable this setting in my org, is there a valid use case? Does anyone have a link I can read more about this?
