Extracting Attachments

To extract attachments and files such as PDFs, JPGs, Word, etc. attached to demographics, TouchPoints, or assessments, Users must extract these on a one by one basis from the location of the file.

This process can be expedited by writing a custom report that provides links to all the associated attachments. Still, the attachments must be downloaded to local storage one by one by clicking each link. To delete the attachments, the user needs to enter the ETO interface and delete the attachment from the Touchpoint or Participant page.
