I have a Sharepoint list and need to add 2 documents as a default attachment to each user-created form on creation. The form is made with InfoPath 2013. I have an attachment field and it works fine, but I dont know how to achieve a default where - on form creation in the list there are already 2 documents attached.

Is that possible in any way?

  • Could you not just upload the two files to a document library and reference them in your InfoPath form? Nov 30, 2020 at 10:59
  • No thats not an option unluckily. They need to be hard attached to the form

Per my knowledge, we cannot set a default value for the list item attachment. Adding a column holding the link to the documents is a doable workaround.

And if that does not satisfy you, you may try to embed the document inside the list item new, display or edit form depending on your final goal.
