Why I am unable to add an attachment to my application template?

To attach a document successfully, ensure that the document you want to attach is closed and then check the following:

Attachment Type
Check that your document is listed as the Attachment Type that the City of Springfield requires.
For example, if the error message reads “The following attachment types are missing: Résumé,” check that your corresponding document’s Attachment Type is listed as Résumé and not Other, Cover Letter, or any other Attachment Type.
File Type
If you receive an error regarding the file type, check that you are attaching a file with a valid (acceptable) file extension.
File Size
Attachments that are larger than ten (10) megabytes are not accepted. If your file is larger than five (5) megabytes, you should reduce the file size. If you are still unable to attach the file after following these steps, try deleting the cookies from your web browser or attempt to attach the file from a different web browser.
