Should you be attaching a file - or using a transmittal instead?

In most cases, we recommend that you use a transmittal, instead of a mail attachment, when you are sending a document, drawing, report or another file that directly relevant to your project.

For more information see What's the difference between a mail and a transmittal? You can also find out how to upload a document to Aconex, then send (transmit) your document.
