Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Managing my Area work center 
  2. Go to Approvals view 
  3. Select the relevant Shopping Cart Task 
  4. Edit the approval task and click on Add Attachments 
  5. Select Approve 
  6. The attachments were not visible in the shopping cart


The attachments added in the approval task will be stored at the task level. The reason behind this behavior is, the shopping cart is a user specific document. Only creator of the shopping cart can add the attachments and no other employee is entitled to access the document.


This is an expected behaviour. It is not possible to add attachments  in the Shopping cart by the approver or any other employee except the creator.
