This article shares details on how to work with files and how to upload them into iMIS.

Files Must Be Publicly Accessible

iDMS must be able to access the file in order to attach the file to the panel source. The file to attach must be a publicly accessible file URL, meaning it may not be protected by a VPN or login.


When creating a new attachment for a panel source, iDMS Import File will identify the Panel Source Field as a field you can send attachments to. You will have 3 fields in the mapping that can fill in, only File URL is required

Required Fields

  • File URL - This is the URL path to access the document.

  • Contact Key - The iMIS ID for the contact to associate the upload with. Does not apply if uploading files to a standalone panel.

    • Examples: text/plain, application/pdf, application/msword

  • File Type - The file type or extension for the file being uploaded.

    • Allowed file formats are: PDF, DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, JPG, GIF, TXT
