      Allow Attachments to be included as an actual Email Attachment.

      We have updated the summary of this issue to reflect the solution implemented. Any feedback related to having attachments appended to the email should be directed to this dedicated issue https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSDCLOUD-4086. It is currently marked as not being considered, as we believe this solution meets the requirements for the majority. But your specific feedback (including your use cases) is highly valuable in the ongoing assessment of this decision.

      Problem Definition

      Currently, if an attachment is included in a notification, an inline preview of the attachment is visible within the e-mail notification. Attempting to access the attachment redirects to the instance's hosted location of the attachment, requiring the user to login to the instance to retrieve the full attachment.

      Suggested Solution

      Allow the option for attachments to be included as an actual e-mail attachment within the e-mail notification so that the attachment can be downloaded directly from the e-mail without having to login to the instance.

      Use Case

      Many Service Desks operate strictly via e-mail with their user base. Requiring the user to login to the instance adds extra steps and therefore making the process inefficient to work with.
