You can attach or link files to any Document in the system.
For example, a Customer Purchase Order, Product information or an Excel sheet can be uploaded, or linked to. In the latter case, you can set a link (URL, hyperlink, web address) to an external folder or file such as Dropbox.
Every Document has an action on the header bar and to the right of the Document name. Look for the paperclip icon.
Five ways to link a document
When you click the paper clip icon, five new icons will appear.

For Google files, you’ll need to give the system access to your Google account. You’ll be prompted with instructions from your Google Account to allow access.
If you encounter any permission issues, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Because of Privacy and Security requirements, Google has a history of changing the behavior of their access mechanisms.
When you perform any of the above actions, the system will add a shortcut to the file you’ve linked or attached. This will be available to the users who have access to this Document type.
