    An update here: this is currently on the 2018 roadmap. That could change, but for right now, it's looking good!

    Update: Clearly this did not get implemented in 2018 and is not currently on the roadmap. Will update here if that changes.

    This is definitely something that I would like to see, as well.  I don't know how the technical side of things would work, but I am envisioning something like "reference attachments," similar to reference data.  I have a need for different documents to be attached to a submission, based on a selection made within the app by the user.  For example, let's say that we have 4 different products and each has different specifications, and I want to make sure each customer receives the appropriate specifications when the product is delivered.  When the driver completes the delivery app and selects the appropriate product number that was delivered, that would prompt the attachment of the corresponding specification document to the submission. 

    It's great to hear that this is on the road map for this year.  Is there anywhere specific, other than this forum, where I should make the suggestion, just to add support to the idea?  Thanks!

  • Hi Jack,

    You've come to the right place! Upvote this topic (and encourage other folks who would benefit from the feature to do so as well - anyone with a GoCanvas account can login and vote).

    I'll keep updating here when I know more about the when and how of this feature. I also want to stress that the roadmap isn't set in stone, so it might change (and if it does, I'll post that here, too).

    It would be a great feature if a report submission could allow for attaching a pdf file (or other) similar to the way a photo can be uploaded from a gallery file.  

     

    thx

    Howdy All,

    Thank you for taking the time to comment and upvote this Feature Request! At this time, ability for mobile users to choose various documents to attach to the submission email PDF is no longer on the roadmap for upcoming releases. We do recognize the challenges that this feature would solve and will continue to review this request during our roadmapping process.

    This is very upsetting to hear that it’s not on the roadmap anymore. Being able to attach a file is as important as a photo, when you have a file with multiple pages taking numerous photos is not practical

  • Thank you for checking in on this Feature Request and taking the time to leave comments. Being able to attach several document types and an attachment library are functions our Product team has discussed since the last response on this post. But with COVID-19 affecting all businesses, we have been regularly re-evaluating and re-prioritizing as we learn more each day. 

    We do not have a timeline for this functionality, but we really appreciate the detailed use cases that have been shared so far. Sara and I have been providing this feedback (and upvote counts) directly to the Product managers for their consideration, and they would love to hear specifics on how this functionality would save time and remove hurdles for your teams.

    This would be a super feature to have. Our sales team need to attach contract specific information with their submission in the form of a PDF. Right now they have to send it separately in an email which breaks our GoCanvas-centric process.
