Upload File Attachments to Design/Bid Packages

Perform the following steps to attach files to a design/bid document package.

To attach files to a design/bid package

On the Add a New Document page, scroll down to the Attachments section, shown here:

Drag and drop the files you want to attach to the section, or select Browse to select the files.

In Chrome, Browse is replaced by Choose File.

Users with older browsers that do not support drag and drop will be prompted to browse for files.

In the Attachments and Sheet Linking popup, link the files to the Sheet or Specification Index as needed. Click Close when finished. When the index entry is contained in the file name, the system typically auto-matches the file with the correct index entry.

You can also access the Attachments and Sheet Linking popup by clicking Manage Attachments in the Attachments section.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Save Draft. When you view the package again, the attached files now appear in the Existing Attachments section.

The author of the attachment is displayed to the right of the attachment.

Additional Information

A maximum of 1000 attachments can be uploaded to design/bid package.
