This imported file will usually be one you have manually imported under the Tasks section by selecting Import File.

1. Claim and sort the file under Consults
You can also sort the file under Consult Request and mark it as an Outgoing Request.
Whichever way you chose to sort the file, the following steps apply.
2. A list of consults associated with the patient will appear, select one to attach the file to.
If no consults currently exist select New Consult.
