An attachment field is a type of field that allows you to attach one or more files directly to your Airtable records. Certain file types (like most image, video, and document attachments) will also show preview thumbnails of the files you've attached.
NOTEView this article for a list of how different file types are displayed.
To upload an attachment to a cell in an attachment field, you can click the plus (+) button on the cell to which you'd like to add an attachment, or click on the Attach file button in the expanded cell. This will bring up a file uploader dialog which will let you upload attachments from a variety of different sources.
You can also drag and drop attachments onto a cell, expanded cell, or into the file uploader dialog.
You can use this feature to upload a single attachment, or any number of attachments in bulk. If you need to create new records by uploading attachments in bulk, please see this article which covers how to do that using the gallery view.
You can download each individual attachment by clicking the Download icon (when viewing multiple attachments in an expanded record) or clicking blue Download button (when viewing a single attachment).
To download attachments in bulk, use the new Scripting App with this script that you can copy and use in your base.
