Add an Attachment


To add attachments to a Training Record, click on the Attachment paperclip icon for the Training Record on the grid list. The Attachments window will open. Select Upload Attachment or Link Attachment (URL).

To browse for the attachment, click the Browse button, navigate to the attachment and select it. Back in the Attachments window, add any Comments and click the Upload button.

To link an attachment, enter or paste the URL in the Link to File text box and then click the Add button.

To clear the list of attachments prior to uploading, click the Clear List button. To remove a specific attachment before uploading it, click the red Delete button.

Once at least one attachment has been uploaded or linked, the name of the file(s) (as well as file type, comments and the View icon) will appear in the lower section of the Attachments window.

After adding at least one attachment to a Training Record, the number of attachments for that Training Record will appear in the Attachments field in the main grid list.
