External events which cannot be added with attachments are SF-182 / external request forms verified by the admin , As per design admins cannot add attachments to the external request form / SF-182.


Kindly note SF-182 / External request form and normal External event recorded via Record Learning Multiple tool , both will be considered as External events as per the Learning event editor tool.

SF-182 / External request form is a government reporting form ,  as per the design application won't allow admins to add any attachments to the form.

Admins can add attachments to the normal External events which are recorded by admins using record learning multiple tool as shown below.
