When creating a new Destination, Step 3 on the destination setup screen will give you the option to display binary files (like images and signatures) inline, or save them to another service. 

Note: This option is only available when creating a Destination and can not be changed or added when editing a previously created Destination.

None (inline)

The None (inline) option is selected by default. When None (inline) is selected here, your file will be present in the document generated by the destination.

Other

If you would prefer that your image files be saved to another service, you will select that service from the list. The available options are:

  • box.com
  • dropbox.com
  • Google Drive
  • Microsoft OneDrive
  • Amazon S3
  • SFTP

When any of these services are selected here, a link to the file will be included in the document generated by the destination, instead of the file itself.

Note: If you choose to use any of these services, you will need to complete authorization in Step 7.


The results will vary depending on the format and Destination chosen. Below are some examples using different Destination types.
