Form Fields & Components: Attachment

An Attachment field allows you to select and attach one or more files, similar to attachment files in an email except that they stay associated with this specific field. You can add as many attachment fields as you need, and each field’s attachments stay associated with the field they were attached to. (Email attachments tend to be shown at the top or bottom of the email).
