The Attachment data type is one of Spreadsheet.com's unique features, making it easy for users to add attachments directly to cells for others to quickly reference or download. Attachments added to cells are visible when looking at the complete worksheet, when expanding the row, or when clicking on the attachments to see them full-screen.
Users can add and view attachments, for instance, in a design tracking workbook, with different design iterations quickly visible to the team. Or users can view different marketing collateral in the marketing team's workbook. Attachments allow you to go far beyond alphanumeric text.
How to view attachment files
For cells with attachments already uploaded, there are multiple ways to view and preview the files (see this article on adding attachments for more insight into how to add an attachment to a cell).
The easiest way is to click the attachment thumbnail in the cell.
However, you can also click on the breadcrumb icon that appears when you hover over a cell to open the attachment preview menu.
If you want to better view multiple attachments without clicking on them, you can change the row height. You can change the row heights for a worksheet using the Row height feature in the toolbar. To change the row heights, click on the Row height icon and select a larger size. Increasing the size of a worksheet's rows automatically resizes the attachments to fit.
Attachment cells allow you to go beyond the grid and add files directly to your workbook. See our articles on Attachment cells and columns for more information, including how to reorder attachments, rename attachments, and for details about attachment limits.
