But in the future ? For one document i know how to code that, but you need to have some developer skills.

Install the Document Management System module.

This adds an Attachments dropdown to the form view:

Once installed, this is available for every model, not just employees.

Note: Most business documents have a chatter section below them allowing users to attach documents to every message or note they record about that document. Since the employee document doesn't, the Document Management System is your best option.

Yes I know this option but what i want is the add button should be inside the form of employee or it should be available at the time of editing.
