Using Attachments

Initiative owners may wish to add attachments to initiatives, such as a business case document. Attachments can be added at any time and supported file formats include Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and video. You can also easily download or edit the attachments associated with an initiative. Multiple attachments may be added to an initiative, but there is no bulk upload capability. 

Please note that your company's configuration of Wave may vary slightly from the examples shown below.

Add Attachments

1. While in an open initiative card, click on the Attachments tab on the left-hand side.Then, click on + ADD ATTACHMENT.

3. Once you have clicked the Create button, you can now upload your attachment. Click on Attachment and select the file you want to attach. Once the file has completed uploading, the attachment will save to your initiative. You can repeat this process for as many documents as you have, but only one document may be attached at a time.
