List attachments collected on a start event form onto a Approval Task form

Is there a way to list the attachments collected on a start event form onto an approval task form? I know I can attach the files in the task notification email (and any notification) that goes out.  However, that feels disjointed to me.  I have several sections in the starting form that require attached documentation.  To have that all come to the approver in one clump of attachments feel clunky. If anyone has done something like this, please let me know.  Thank you.

Give this how-to article a look and let me know if it covers what you're looking to do:

Re: List attachments collected on a start event form onto a Approval Task form

Thank you. I’ll take a look. The issue though is the starting form. In the video example the starting form is coming from SharePoint online where my starting form is coming from Workflow Cloud. I figure I need to do some sort of loop to pull in each attachment but I can’t seem to get those variables to show up as options in the task form. I did find another post that mentions seeing both the original form and the task on the workflow cloud MyNintex page. You can then download the attachment and review it at that point. Not perfect but better than sending them in a bulk within an email.

@brianknight - I'll take a look on my end and see what I can come up with on my tenant.  I'll let you know what I find, but it may not be until Monday (07FEB22).

@brianknight - I've reached out to the Nintex Workflow Cloud team to see what options are available to accomplish this.  Once I hear back, I'll update this post.
