How to add an attachment or file to a task*

You can add an attachment or file to a task or a subtask* in any view in the Workast web app.

To add an attachment to a task:

  • Expand the task by clicking on it.
  • Click on the paperclip icon in the top of a task to open your file browser.  Click on the file that you want to add, and select open/confirm the file to add it. 
  • You also can copy and paste an image into the task by using either your mouse or the control/command+C keyboard shortcut to copy and control/command+V to paste it.
  • You can also drag and drop a file from most files/program locations into the attachment portion of the task with most programs.   (A few third party programs may prevent this function.)
  • To delete an attachment, mouseover the attachment and click on the red X to the left of the attachment name.  Select yes to remove it. 

To download an attachment:

  • Click on the file name.
  • Follow the onscreen instructions

Please note - file attachments can only be added to tasks through the web app or mobile app and cannot be added in Slack at this time.

* Subtasks are a feature of paid Workast subscriptions.  File attachments may be limited by your plan.  See our pricing page for details.
