Attaching a document to an Alert

Is there a way to attach a pdf to an Alert when you are creating an Automation? If not, does someone have a workaround? I need to send a pdf of the Guidelines to Supervisors once their email addresses are added to the sheet.

thank you!

    Hi @LHurley

    I hope you're well and safe!

    The only way to include it is if it's what triggers the Workflow (attachment added to the row), or you could use an Update Request instead and include the Attachment field, which would be included in the Update Request.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
