Linking to Files

Creating Hyperlinks to File Attachments in Body Content

Tips & Best Practices:


  • Remember to upload your attachments under the "File Attachments" list before you proceed to creating a link in your body content. 
  • Use PDFs as the preferred file format for online attachments.
  • Provide descriptive and obvious names for your file attachments.


  • Using large files that take a long time to download. Keep your attachments under 2MB whenever possible.
  • Uploading Word docs which not everyone can open, are too easily modified, and won't necessarily look the same on someone else's computer.
