    What's the best way to view file links via email notification for easy download?

    1. I need the download links to the attached files - what is the best way to put them int the notification so that I can afterwards   treat every attachment separately?

    In order to access the file links to uploaded files so that you can download them quickly the best place to do that is through the email notification itself.

    You can do this by getting the "tag" for your file upload fields from the form field box.

    Once you are done make sure you click "finish" then save your form otherwise it can lead to issues such as not working or disappearing as you previously had mentioned.
