Preview attachments

Attachments are files that are attached to AODocs documents. Attachments are stored in Google Drive and are owned by the storage account of your library. Learn more: What are attachments?

To preview the content of AODocs document attachments:

1. Open an AODocs document in any type of library.

2. In the sidebar, select the attachment you want to preview.

  • For Google files, such as Google Docs, Sheets or Slides, the file is displayed in the embedded Google editor. 
  • For non-Google files, the file opens in the Google Drive preview.

Note: The preview is available only for file formats supported by Google Drive preview.


Note: If you have the Universal File Opener installed, you can open non-Google file attachments in their corresponding software directly from your AODocs document. Learn more: What is the Universal File Opener (UFO)?
