Attachment Note workflow activity

The Attachment Note activity adds an attachment to the current record.

This activity allows the use of irregular HTML tags to reference attachments, specifically the [code] tag. Entries in a journal field that use irregular HTML do not work if the glide.ui.allow_deep_html_validation property is true. This property is set to false by default.


  • Finished: the activity added the attachment to the record.
