Files, documents, images and zip folders can be easily shared with others in GetBusy by attaching to any tasks and threads.
They can be attached when creating a thread, or afterwards, and can be added by any participant involved on the thread.
Files and documents can be stored against any contact or organisation in your Connections, without requiring a task, for easy personal or internal reference. You can create a task directly from the document if and when you need to, to share it, discuss it or sign it. Refer to this other help guide to find out how to add to individual contact or organisation records.

Attachments in this smart view will be listed in date order with most recently added appearing at the top, and any attachments that are part of threads that have been archived will appear in the Archived section towards the bottom of the page.
If your threads have been categorised using your private tags, you can filter your attachments using these private tags, which will appear at the top of the list of attachments.
