You can leverage the Attachment functionality in SwiftKanban to attach documents (including text files, spreadsheets, image files) to cards, and use them for future reference. Attaching multiple files have also been made easy as you can drag-and-drop or multi-select files to attach them to a single card.

Moreover, you can also take a print screen and copy the same directly into the description field of a card.

You can manage attachments to a card in the following two ways:
