In winter'18 Notes & Attachments related list will no longer have an Upload File button. In my application, I am inserting the attachment using apex code. I just want to confirm if we can still upload attachment using apex or not.



What's you're seeing in the Release notes is a UI issue, not a functionality issue in terms of the platform for the attachments. You should still be able to create the custom functionality.

  • So I can upload attachment using Apex. But, I think I should now plan to move to files. Thanks @crmprogdev Sep 13 '17 at 14:33
  • That's correct, esp if you're planning to move to Lightning.

  • Is there a feature/function/code, which can work on conversion of Attachment to File whenever code/integration system create attachment?

  • @Ankuli Doug Ayers wrote some code that's available from his Github repository to convert existing attachments to files as content. He wrote this blog post about it.

Please refer to Knowledge Article, https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=New-Note-button-Notes-Attachments-related-list&language=en_US&type=1 which says that "Upload Files" button will remain available in the legacy Notes & Attachments related list.
