Can PDF attachments be added to features in ArcGIS Online?
No, it is not possible to add PDF attachments to features in ArcGIS Online. PDF attachments or images stored in 'My Content' in ArcGIS Online are only for storage; these links cannot be used as attachments for the features.
However, as an alternative, the 'Add Attachment' tool in ArcMap can be used to attach and publish PDF files as attachments to ArcGIS Online. For more information on the Add Attachment tool, refer to: ArcGIS for Desktop - Add Attachments.
Another alternative is to attach the URL of an external storage site to the feature. To do so:
1. Create a cloud storage folder (Dropbox, Google Drive, or equivalent) and upload the PDFs there.
This is where the shareable URL originates.
Ensure the field is 'Text', and at least 200 characters long.
