Can an attachment be referenced in an Alert messages like other columns?

I have an alert set up to notify management when a new status report (attachment) is added to a sheet. Each status report is attached to a single line in the report history sheet.

I'm sending a simple message to non-Smartsheet users with some basic info from the sheet using {{column name}}, but to get the attachment included it appears I need to enable the sheet link and specific columns option which I don't want. While it works, the receivers find it off putting.

Is there a way to reference the link to the attachment in the message using the same method as the columns? I've tried {{an attachment}} and {{attachment}} but they aren't recognized.

Maybe someone has another idea?

Thanks for the help.
