Adding attachments in pack calendar on Scoutbook

What am I missing? Can we add attachments to calendar events in Scoutbook? Specifically things like special location waivers or packing lists? It would be really helpful so We aren’t having to send out multiple emails per event. We are loving the aut-send reminder function of the calendar but this would make it so much better for the parents and could eliminate them wondering why we send out 4 emails for an event. (2 reminders and 2 attachment emails) plus might actually help in getting the waiver sheets back on the day needed.

If it is out there already in the system - where is it - what am I missing?

@LianneRutty - at the moment there are no attachments on events. What I typically do is include the hyperlinks for documents in the event details. Additionally, you can send emails with multiple attachments as long as they are in the same folder location. I have sent out emails with 4 or more attachments many times.

I broke the markup on purpose so you can see what the markup looks like. Below that it is rendered properly. This example includes a link to our file section of our webpage and to payment via square.

Annual Baird School Scouting Winter Camp. We will have one of the cabins for 1401 (and maybe girls from the pack). This is an awesome event with 1401, boy’s troop 1201, and the family pack 4201. We will have a campfire program with songs and skits on Saturday night!
