How to turn on and off attachments types

This tutorial outlines how local government administrators can configure the type of the attachment's functionality. After configuration, they can toggle on/off different attachment types as part of building permit applications. 

Cloudpermit gives the building department the ability to decide which attachment types can be used for different applications. Additionally, building departments can also accept additional attachment types than those configured. In other words, when building departments identify required attachments, Cloudpermit gives building departments the flexibility to take additional attachments in conjunction with required attachments.

Go to the User Menu and open it.
Select Configuration from the list.
You are navigating to the Application Configuration page.
Scroll down to the Attachments types section.

Any of the attachment types toggled under selected attachment types will be available selections for applicants. In addition, all of the enabled attachments types in this section determine which attachments can be configured as required attachments for specific applications.

To enable/disable a specific attachment type, toggle on/off for that attachment type.

When you are finished, click on Save at the bottom right of the attachment types section. 

When you configure the attachment types, applicants will select the enabled attachment types under the attachments section of their applications.
More specifically, when applicants or other parties of the application add an attachment to their applications, they will be able to identify it on the Type drop-down. An image is included besides for reference.
