Adding an Attachment

You can add an attachment to an item in the following two ways when you are in the Attachments view:

Use Attach File Button 

  1. Click on to open the Windows Open file dialog where you select the file to attach and click Open.

Drag and Drop

  1. Drag a file from Windows Explorer and drop it on the view page. 

You will get a confirmation message before the file is actually attached:

Tip: If you want to attach an email from MS Outlook, you must first store the email as a file, and then store the file as an attachment. An easy way to do this is to select the email in Outlook, then drag&drop the email into a Windows folder (like your Desktop). You can then drag&drop the file into swExplorer.

Opening an Attachment

You can open an attachment by double-clicking on the line of the attachment in the Attachments view. 

You can also right-click on an attachment and select Open Attachment.

The file will then be opened by the application registered for the file type.

An alternative to directly opening the file is to download the file to a Windows folder and then opening the document in Windows.
