    Hi Jay F,

    Apologies, I assumed you were working with a custom ticket form directly in the help center. Here's an article which goes in to a bit more detail on how to add attachments to tickets via API - I think this should be more suitable for your use case:

    I hope this helps. Feel free to reach out with any questions!

    I have the attachments enabled

    However, i wondered if anyone knew how i can make it required when submitting a form?


    Customer reports a damaged product, visits our helpcentre and selects the damaged items form

    Before the ticket can be submitted by the customer, they need to attach an image

    Hey Ian,

    I'd recommend taking a look at the following user tip: Requiring a ticket attachment if a particular dropdown option is selected
    You may be able to use the custom code shared to set this up in your own Guide theme.

    I hope this helps!

    Hi there,

    I have a few questions about attachments in "Submit a request"
    1. How to edit the title of the default attachment
    2. How to duplicate one or more attachments?
    3. Should I add some command at the very bottom at the page "new_request_page.hbs"?

    Hi Bonaliza! If you're looking to allow customers to add an attachment when creating a ticket through the form on your "Submit a request" page, "Customers can attach files" must be enabled in the "Attachments" section of Admin > Settings > Tickets in the Support interface. Once this is enabled, end users will see this option — you do not need to add a ticket field for it to appear.

    When a customer attaches a file with their ticket submission, you will see the attachment included with their ticket when viewing it as an agent.

    I hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any questions or if you had something else in mind. Thanks!

    Hi Jay F

    As long as you've enabled attachments, the field to submit an attachment should display on your custom form by default.

    Let me know if you have any issues!
