    Can I add/insert a picture as part of the data input?

    Asked by Jerry Gamble on November 29, 2011 at 10:52 AM

    Great Product!  Thank you.

    I use your product from my iPhone.  I inspect new construction homes and input any inspection items into my phone to create a work order.  But it is becoming more frequent that adding pictures would help with the work order description.  Right now, I simply take a picture with my phone and hope that I have the opportunity to share these pictures to make sure the repair item is understood before we go back.

    Is there any way to insert a picture(s) as part of the data input so that it becomes a true "inspection" report that leaves nothing to question?  Maybe like a picture placeholder or something that I can insert the images taken with my phone.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you for the compliments.

    I hope I got your concern right. If all you need is to upload a file(photo) along with a form submission, that is easily done by adding an upload field. On the left sidebar, under 'Form Fields', choose the 'File Upload' option.

    When one uses the form, a device should easily allow a photo to be uploaded as long as your device's file system permits it.

    Please reply if I misunderstood your query.

    Have a great day!
