To upload a file to a patient record:

Click on the Create button and select Attachment

Choose the file from your device

Once the file has uploaded you will see options to:

Enter a Description for the Attachment (optional)
Select a Keyword i.e. "Letter" or "Scan". You can amend or add more keywords - find out more here
Choose if you want it to be visible only to you
Identify whether it's a file you've added password protection to (if you don't know, WriteUpp will work this out once it's uploaded and opened)
Then Save:

You will be dropped back into the Files tab of the Patient Summary, where you will be able to view your uploaded file:

If the file you wish to upload is larger than 8MB, you will see a message advising this as it cannot be uploaded and stored within WriteUpp:

If the file you select has a name containing invalid characters, you will see this message and can rename the file to remove any special characters before trying again:

This uploader supports a variety of file formats including PDF, DOC, DOCX, XLS, CSV, JPEG, PNG. Some older file formats (i.e. BMP) may not be supported.  For a full list of file formats that can be uploaded, click here.

You also have the option to link out to a file or folder that you have in external storage (Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox etc). This will allow you to access and link important files to a patient in WriteUpp that might be larger than 8MB in size.  You can read more about this here.
