How to get attachment in the Alert Notification

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to send the attachment to the other team member, my condition in the sheet is if the person checked the box in the sheet, the manager should receive the notification along with the attachment, which is attached to the row, but in my case, the attachment is not showing in the mail. Please suggest to me some way to achieve this.

Thanks for the help!

    Hi @Kaveri Vipat

    I hope you're well and safe!

    If the attachment triggers the Alert, you can include it, but if it's not, you'd have to use an Update Request to include it.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Just seen this question and wanted to add, if there is an attachment on the row, you can include it in a Notification by using the option Links to sheet and specific fields from the options below the Message Body:

    This won't discern between multiple attachments, but it will send them with the notification.

    Hope this helps
