File Attachment

On the File Attachment page, documents can be uploaded and associated to various ACTS records. Users can upload files that include, but are not limited to: PDF's, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, Text files, and JPEGs.  Users may add File Attachments via the Explorer Tree and several pages throughout ACTS including, but not limited to, the Equipment page, the Facility page, and the Regulation page.  To access the File Attachment page from the main menu, users may select the Tools module then File Attachment.

The File Attachment page has 27 tabs.  These tabs are broken down into three categories:

Information The Information tab contains general File Attachment information such as: File Location, File Name, File Type, File Status, etc. It also displays a preview of the attachment.
View/Edit The View/Edit tab allows the user to determine who has access to a particular File Attachment.
Association Tabs (All Other Tabs) These tabs contain the associations of the File Attachments to other records in ACTS such as: the Agency Exceptions page, Area page, Equipment page, and Facilities page.
