Attachments Debug View

The Attachments View lists all the files that are attached to the current task.  A file that is attached to task is automatically wrapped into the task file.  This allows any files that rely on the task to be easily transported, exported or deployed and any attached files will be included along with the managed task and/or task file.  At runtime, the attachments are automatically "unwrapped" to a current folder directory, where they can be accessed from the AutoMate task. Once a file is attached, it can be easily used in a task by simply referencing the filename (without the path).

Attachments are managed through the Task Builder. The Attachments tab of the Task Builder debug window lists all files that are attached to the current task. More on Attachments can be found here: About Attachments
