Add Attachments

Adding attachments in your Oro application helps keep track of assets such as paper copies of a return, or a bill of service written on site. This way, the representative can attach the copy to a customer’s case, the customer, or account records.

See a short demo on how to add attachments in your Oro application, or keep reading the step-by-step guidance below.


By default, the list of activities available for each entity is determined by what is most commonly used by businesses. However, if your company’s work process requires it, you can always turn the desirable activity on for almost any entity (except technical ones). If you need particular activities to be enabled for an entity, contact your administrator, or see steps 4 and 5 of the Create an Entity action description

How to Add Attachments
