The Attachment Types table is a background table that holds a record for each value to be displayed in the Attachment Type field within the Attachment record. It also defines any special fields to be displayed for this attachment type within the Attachment record.

Use Case

Attachment Types can be created and edited by admins and Contract Managers. Each Attachment Type record can be one of the following, or both:

 The Show in Tables field in the Attachment Type record controls whether the Attachment Type record can be used in the Attachment and Company Document tables.

The Attachment Type and Fields to Show fields are pulled into the Attachment and Company Document tables as a link to selected fields from another table. The values in Fields to Show are used to control the visibility of certain fields in the Attachment and Company Document records.

The Sort Order field is used to determine the order of the drop-down list displayed in the Attachment Type field within Attachment records.

Automation

The Standard System Demo system does not contain any rules, or actions, in the Attachment Types table by default.

Ownership

Attachment Type records are owned by their creator. Specifically, an attachment type record is owned by the user whose Login matches the Creator Login field.
