Hi, @Annie ,
If you want to display the 'paper clip', you need to modify the view to show the attachments column. It is a reserved column handled by SharePoint.
In the ribbon, you can find a button named modify current view and display the attachments column.
Then you will be able to see if the task has attachment.
