Can I include a link to an uploaded file in the notification email?

Can I include a link to an uploaded file in the notification email?

In a DataAssist form that sends the fields submitted in an email, the file fields are always omitted whether they have a value or not. Not even the field names appear.

What I need to have happen is for the uploaded files (there are 3 possible upload fields) to be listed in the body of the email along with the other fields that were submitted. Ideally I'd like to include links to the uploaded files so that the recipient has the option to download if interested. I would rather include links instead of attachments since my recipients' email server is very likely to flag emails containing attachments as spam or worse.

Yes. You should be able to add the bindings to the uploaded file to the email body. By default they will only show on the page with the upload, but if you drag/drop them onto that page, then you can copy/paste them into the email body.

You would have to also define the upload objects as global variables in the top of the email body file. If you attached the files in question I could give you the correct syntax.
