How To Turn On and Off Attachment Types


Cloudpermit provides building departments the ability to configure various functionalities according to their liking. For example, building departments can toggle on/off different attachment types as part of building permit applications. This is helpful for the following two reasons:

  1. Cloudpermit gives building department the ability to decide which attachment types that can be used for different applications.
  2. Cloudpermit gives building department the ability to accept additional attachment types. More specifically, while building departments identify required attachments, Cloudpermit gives building departments the flexibility to accept additional attachments in conjunction with required attachments. 

This article explains how building departments can configure Cloudpermit's attachment types functionality. Please note, to be able to configure the attachment types, you must have administrator rights
