Attach File Upload result to Email Trigger

Hello all,

Is there, in a survey that contains a File Upload question, a way to attach the actual uploaded file to the message fired by an email trigger?

I know you can include a direct download link in the trigger message as an Embedded Data field (as well as a filename and the size of the file), and that's over half the battle, but what about going beyond that and just putting it in there?

Also, I know File Upload files can be up to 100MB and unwieldy for email, but suppose, for the purpose of this exercise, that these uploads were small and manageable and did not contain viruses.

    Thank for for confirming, @Mohammedali_Rajapakar_Ugam!

    @Mohammedali_Rajapakar_Ugam I have a related question... when I attach a PDF, receive the triggered email, and click on the link to download it, I get a warning that Qualtrics is NOT safe. Not even with a caveat! It just says Qualtrics is NOT safe - do you want to continue? I don't want my respondents to think I'm using a phishing site! How do I verify Qualtrics as a safe source?

    As of now, we can only provide the link of the file (through which user can download the file) but not explicitly attach it in the email.

    How such a link can be added to the email trigger?

    Seeing as this was answered over a year ago, is there any update to this? Has anyone got a workaround for attaching uploads as attachments rather than links (which require login to Qualtrics for download)?
