Object Attachments

Overview

Object attachments or object links are files, ToDos or URLs that have been specifically linked to a particular model object. They can provide specific instructions or important information related to that object.

Objects can have 3 attachment types:

  1. ToDos

  2. Files (Project Files and Device Photos)

  3. URLs
