This caught me guard the first time I created an automation using an alert. Using anything other than "When An attachment is: Added, Changed" as the trigger will not include any attachment links in the email.
I would love an enhancement so if you have different triggers (I.E. When "status" changes to "complete") an alert would include links to any attachments in the email!
This would be helpful for 3rd parties who don't have a Smartsheet account so they can view/download any related documents. For internal users they can just reference the original sheet.
If anyone is interested in a work around here you go: Create a helper sheet and set up an automation to copy rows to the helper sheet when trigger point is reached. On the helper sheet, set up the desired alert using "When An attachment is: Added, Changed" as the trigger. When the rows are copied, Smartsheet will push out the alert with the attachment links included. The downside to this method is the alert will reference the helper sheet not the original sheet ☹️
Currently, there is no way to add an attachment to the Message only part of the workflow. We need this feature to be added, so we don't share the whole sheet with the users, instead we only want to share the attachment and a message. This is in the "Alert someone"
I vote for attachment capabilities as part of an automated message. I LOVE the generate document automation so much and the ability to change the sender on the automation.
Now I just need the ability to tweak a few things and then have it fire off for the person to keep the document for their records. The update request workaround isn't great for my use case because these are users who do not have regular interaction with smartsheet so I don't want to confuse them.
Please add the feature to add an attachment to the 'Alert Someone' workflow.
This will allow email recipients (contacts) to receive and view an attachment in addition to the subject/message of an email.
I agree with everyone else. I'm running into this issue now and think this really needs to be a function added. The attachment to a row is great, but limited to almost useless without the ability to add it to a notification.

Although it's typical to need to run a few tests for a workflow or automation, it would be great if we had the option of previewing what the automated emails/notifications/alerts would look like for individual users with different types of permissions. A view "View As" type of feature.
When a project and tasks are set up with dependencies and durations, the project manager should be able to drive all task dates based on the project end date, not just the start date. Often mid project the delivery date needs to be changed. With Smartsheet, a project manager needs to adjust the duration of all tasks…
It would be great to be able to select a workspace as the template source folder while setting up a blueprint in Control Center. Currently you have to select a folder in a specific workspace. This change would eliminate the initial folder created at the workspace level, and would allow the end user to have all the template…
