It's Document Attach Week on the GP 2018 Feature of the Day Blog.
Why is document attachment important?
Document Attach enables users to attach multiple documents to Items, Customers, Vendors, Assets and Transactions. It makes it easier and reduces the number of clicks to get information by having instant access to documents like signed documents, W-9's, Contracts, Credit Reports, Customer POs, pictures. Any document you can think of can be attached or you could attach a link to a OneDrive site or SharePoint.
Now users don't need to search around various places.
Keep in mind, document attach stores documents in the SQL database, so for larger files, you will want an alternate location.
What does it look like? Here is where you click to attach a document.
Here is the attachment window. As you can see you can have an unlimited number of attachments and it stores date/time/user stamps.

From what I can see, while you can attach URL shortcuts, it is not possible to attach folder or file shortcuts in DocAttach; folder shortcuts won't even try to attach and a file shortcut will actually attach the file the shortcut points to rather than the shortcut itself?
Correct. You can't attach a file folder. That might be a good addition for GP Next.
