You can attach files to a purchase order directly by email, without ever needing to log into the Anvyl platform. When you receive an email notification and attach a file to it, Anvyl automatically adds the file to the correct PO. Each purchase order will contain a minimum of one file, the purchase order. If a purchase order is revised and issued, a new purchase order file will be created.
