Email a File in a File Field


When I attach a File Field into an email, it shows a “Download” link in the email body instead of attaching the document itself. Also, since my File Field is secure, the link the email body doesn’t work


Secure files will only work when accessed from within Tadabase.

Assuming the file is not necessarily secure, it is possible to send the file as an attachment, but requires several steps.

  1. You must convert the file to BASE64
  2. Save the Base64 to the Database
  3. Use the SendGrid Pipe to send file with attachment.

I think there’s another thread in the community that explains this in details. I’ll try to find the link and add it here.

Edit: Here’s the link: Multiple PDF Generator
