Link to files in eNotices

This article refers to our legacy product, eNotify, which will no longer be available and support for the product will be discontinued, effective August 1, 2023. For the best Finalsite experience, we recommend using our Finalsite Messages, which provides enhanced security and reliability for your school's email communication needs. Visit our client portal for additional information and next steps.

Linking to a file in File Manager is a better practice than attaching a file, as described in Send files via eNotify. To link to a file, follow these steps.

  1. While creating your eNotice, highlight the text that you want to become a link, then click the "Link" button to bring up the link window.


  2. If the file you want to link has not yet been uploaded to File Manager, follow the instructions here: Uploading files or images to File Manager.

  3. Paste the address of the file from File Manager into the "URL" field of the link window. You can get the URL of a file in File Manager by clicking on the eye icon next to it - this opens the file in a new browser tab, and you can copy the address from the address bar.


  4. In the eNotice editor, the text that you highlighted in step 1 is now a link. When your recipients get this eNotice, they'll be able to click on the link and download the file you selected.

  5. After you've sent the eNotice, you can view its stats and see how many people have clicked on the links, including links to files. See eNotify statistics and analytics reports.
