How to Take a Photo and Upload It to Jotform Mobile Forms

June 8, 2022

Imagine the convenience of taking and uploading a photo to a form without leaving the form. Thanks to Jotform Mobile Forms, you can do just that.

When creating your form, add the Take Photo widget. Although you can use other File Upload fields to accept photos, the Take Photo widget has a built-in camera app that doesn’t require you to open the camera app on your phone or tablet. This saves you from going through a few extra steps outside the Jotform Mobile App to take and save a photo. After you take a photo using the widget, the photo is automatically uploaded to the form and ready to be submitted.

Adding and Setting Up the Take Photo Widget

  1. In the Jotform Mobile Forms builder, tap the Add (+) icon on the lower left.

  2. You can also update the text for the following properties:
    • Take Photo Button
