Within Teamwork Projects, you can attach a file to any task that you have access to. You can do this on an existing task or when creating a new task.

Adding a file to an existing task

To add a file to an existing task, click the edit pencil to the left of the task name, and go to the task's files tab (paperclip icon).

You can choose to upload files from various areas:

  • Add files - upload new files to the project from files stored on your computer.
  • Select from Existing Files - allows you to choose from files already uploaded to the projects file area.
  • Integrations - If you have any file storage integrations enabled on your project, you will be able to add files directly from one of those.

Selecting existing files will allow you to search by file name, filter by category, and switch between list view or grid view. 

You can choose one or multiple files to add to the task using the checkboxes on the right, and also view details of each file by clicking the icon.

To remove a file, remove the tick from the checkbox to the left of the file name. 


Adding a file to a new task

You can also add a file directly to a task when you are first creating the task.

To do this, open the files tab of the task by selecting the paperclip icon.
