You can add extra information or resources to a task by uploading file attachments from your local hard drive or a connected platform such as Dropbox or Google Drive to it. All attachments are safely stored in the cloud and can be accessed by your project collaborators.
Tasks with attachments are marked with a small paperclip icon and an inline preview of the attachment. To save space in your project board, you can also disable the inline preview in your appearance settings.
Basic users are able to upload files with a maximum size of 20MB. Pro users can upload files with up to 250MB.
