These are the formats for attachments accepted by the platform: PDF, GIF, JPEG, JPG, PNG, PPT, PPTX, PPTM, XLS, XLSX, XLSM, DOC, DOCX, DOCM, MSG, and RTF.
The maximum size supported for files attached is 25MB.

Click Add Attachment. The system displays the New Attachment dialog box.
In the Attachment title field specify the title for your attachment and click Next. The dialog box content shows you an upload area with the accepted formats, maximum file size, and the option to Drag and drop your file, or browse in your device.
