You don't have security privileges to open this window adding attachments

    Hello,
    Just recently enabled document attachments in Dynamics GP 2015 and my non powerusers are getting an error: "You don't have security privileges to open this window. Contact your system administrator for assistance". Do you know what security role I need to add or how to fix it? Thank you

    @Dima B.

    It's great that you are enabling Document Attachment!  That is a great feature!

    You will need to make sure that one of the tasks that the user has assigned to a role includes the appropriate document management operations.

    These are found specifically on Dynamics GP/Windows/COMPANY

    Here is a sample of what my default user ID has on it - there are a couple to choose from, depending on where they are getting the error, but I suspect you want to check Document Attachment Management.

    Here is how mine looks:

    Great. Thanks. I got it going.
    One more question: can I attach a file on a Purchasing Invoices? I see the "Attach" icon there, but cannot  attach. Thanks

    That is the inquiry window for a posted transaction, so given your version of GP, you can only preview.  At some point (don't recall off the top of my head but I think it was GP 2018), Microsoft added the ability to add documents to posted transactions.
