Adding Attachments to Approval

I have a workflow for drawing requests and approvals.  the first part of the workflow is working.  the request is created, and the request is directed to the correct person to create the drawing.  when the user creates the drawing, the drawing needs to be approved.  the user has the email with options of who to send it to to approve the drawing, how can i add the drawing at this point and have it flow with the rest of the emails/approvals going forward?

Hi @andydef34 

Maybe you can request UserB to save the drawn drawing in the specify folder, and then write the name of the file with extension in the approval comment.

Then find the file according to the file name in the specify folder, and append the file to the variable for storing files.

Finally, send an approval to UserC with the variable.

I can get attachments into the approval process when it starts, i need to add more attachments once the approval process is started.  User A sends approval to User B with two attachments.  User B does work with the two attachments and creates a third attachment.  How can i add the third attachment to the approval process so User C sees all the attachments?
