TeamDynamix allows you to add attachments to your tickets in the ticketing application. The attachments system supports file uploads from a computer or attaching external documents from other file hosting services. For detailed information about file requirements and size limits for attachments, see the TDX knowledge base article Attachments in TeamDynamix.

The attachments function does not currently provide information about attachments in the ticket Feed area. If you delete an attachment, TDNext does not currently note this in the ticket Feed or anywhere else, and the attachment is permanently deleted.
