Attaching Documents

Red Urchin has the ability to attach different types of documents to Activities within the ‘To Do Today’ page and also any of the entries within the sub-pages. You can attach multiple documents from multiple sources (depending on your tablets operating system and installed apps) so the right information is at your fingertips when you need it. If there is no files attached to an Activity the paperclip is grey, if there is files attached to an Activity the paperclip is highlighted yellow.
