Attachments Retention Setting

This shows how a client admin can update the attachments retention setting.

Goal

An alert to remind users to attach photocopies of documents in Section 2 and 3 can appear if the Form I-9 document photocopy retention policy setting is used. The alert will appear if there is no attachment uploaded in Section 2 or 3.

To attach a document, see How to Upload Attachments.

Please note that the user is still able to complete Section 2 or 3 without an attachment if they bypass the alert pop-up.
