Attachments Overview

Attachments are electronic files such as PDFs or image files that you can upload from your computer to your Civic Platform server, and then associate with a licensed professional, inspection, parcel, asset, part, calendar, or other record. Attachments can be just about any relevant document or file, such as special instructions, diagrams, pictures, or other information relevant to the record. An audit log is available that you can use to review the information about attachments, such as when an attachment is uploaded or deleted, or when its access permissions to Citizen Access users are modified. See Audit Logs for information about the document audit log.

If your agency implements Citizen Access, administrators have the ability to use the documentation portlet to assign public user permissions for each attachment associated with a record.

Civic Platform can be configured to enable an electronic document review process. See Electronic Document Review for more information.
