Attach a file to invoice before emailing in Accounts Hosted

I was wondering if there was some way of attaching a document to the invoice prior to emailing it from Hosted.  Currently I have to download the invoice and email it with the attachment from Outlook, but I would much rather upload the delivery docket and attach it to the invoice.  This can occur in Xero quite easily (and I can see C: drive), I don't want to go to Xero (AT ALL) but desperately want this feature in Hosted.  Is it there and I just can't see it?

Thanks for your assistance.
Katrina

    Kevin, I can't see how to attach a file to an email in Hosted thats what I am asking for; obviously I can't see where you do that.  I just click email and the email goes, there doesn't appear to be anyway of adding an attachment. What am I missing? Did you provide some instructions somewhere?

    Hello Katrina,
    If you select email a tax invoice at the top left side there is a box that says attachment, this then opens the select file attachment box and you can choose Qdrive or Bdrive and the file you need, I guess you would need to upload the file first into Qdrive. I just tried this and the file is in the Upload folder in Qdrive.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi, I am trying to do this in the Reckon Accounts Hosted 2021 but cannot see any box on top left as described above.

    I have looked in File > Send Forms and also from within the Tax Invoice Form itself but still cannot find it.

    Would someone please help direct me? With thanks, Daniel

    Except that my email window does not open up to allow me to select attachment or change message
