Tapping the ellipsis icon will enable you to upload files from a variety of other sources, including from a web search or from your Dropbox or Google Drive account.
PDF uploads aren't currently supported on the Android app.
The cell will show thumbnail previews of the files you've attached, which you can tap to open in an expanded preview or download directly to your phone.
From the bottom of the expanded preview, you can tap the download icon on the left to bring up a variety of sharing and downloading options, or you can tap the trashcan icon on the right to delete the attachment.
Does the attachment field compress image files?
We don’t change or degrade the quality of attachments that you upload to Airtable. If you download an attachment from Airtable, you’ll get an exact copy of the file you originally uploaded. If you need to compress your images—we recommend using a third-party app and then uploading your newly compressed images into Airtable.
Can I use HEIC formatted images?
Thumbnails and previews of HEIC files are not currently supported in Airtable. For now, you could set your iPhone to save photos as JPG files instead of HEIC to work around this limitation.
