What are attachments?

Attachments are files that are attached to AODocs documents. Attachments can be stored in:

  • Google Drive – the attachments in your library are stored in the Google Drive associated with the storage account of your library (all types of library)
  • Google Cloud Storage – the attachments in your library are stored in one or more Google Cloud Storage (GCS) buckets (Document Management libraries only)

Attachments are listed in the left sidebar of your document. In Document Management libraries you can also access attachments in the Properties tab, under Attachments.

Documents in Team Folders and Secured Folders have exactly one attachment.

  • Are default attachments to templates referrants to the same file on the Google Drive or do they create a copy of the "attached" google drive file? If it is the former, is there a way to configure default attachments to templates that are copies of a referrant file?

  • We make copies of the Google Drive file(s) attached to the Document template every time the template is used.
