I am really happy to share the below solution on how to send an email notification with attachments to new joinees using a business rule. 


Context :

As part of a Process, HR Team wants to share the Policy, Code of Conduct, etc. documents as an attachment with an email notification.

Requirement :

  • Along with Email notification, New Joinee shall receive the documents also.

  • The attachments have to be sent while the new joinee is in Onboarding 2.0 module completing the onboarding process.

Add Static Document as Email Attachment is a feature used here to achieve the requirement.

  • You can share up to 10 static documents as email attachments in a business rule
