Eloqua - Uploading to File Storage to create links to documents

Although you cannot attach files to an Eloqua send, you can upload a file to Eloqua and add a link to it in your email.

File limitations

Upload your file

  1. In Eloqua, navigate to Assets > Components > File Storage.
  2. Find your user group's folder and double-click it to open it. 
  3. Click the Upload ... button in the upper right corner of the screen. A new window will open.
  4. Click the blue square with the cloud and arrow and navigate to the file on your computer. 
  5. Ensure that the Where: dropdown has your user group's folder listed!


After the upload is complete, you should see it in your folder. 

Link the file in your email

  1. Open the email where you'll insert a link to the file you just uploaded.
  2. Hyperlink the object (e.g., text, button, image) you want your readers to click to access the file you uploaded. 
  3. In the control panel on the left, look for Hyperlink Properties. 
    • Change the Link Type dropdown menu to say File in File Storage.


    • Then, click the button with the folder icon to navigate to where you just saved your file.


  4. Save your work! 
  5. When a contact clicks the hyperlink (text, button or image) in the email, it will open the file you uploaded in their web browser.
