If you want your forms to have a photo or image option, then you can drag ‘Photo’ widget from the left panel to the digital mobile screen in the middle.

Photo feature, while filling the form, will allow the user to capture images using the mobile camera, or even, pick an image from photo gallery/library.

Properties of a Photo

1. Label

You can change the name of the Photo widget by using the ‘Label’ property on the right panel under properties. Just type in the given box against the Label.

2. Required

You can use this property on the right panel to make photo mandatory to be added while filling the form.

Some fields in your form might be mandatory, while some might not be.

If you set the Required property to ‘Yes,’ then the user will have compulsorily add the photo while filling up the form.

3. Unique Identifier

Every field will have a unique identifier. No two unique identifiers for fields will be the same.

Please note that ‘Unique Identifier’ property is just for reference purpose only. The user need not have to do anything to this property, it can be referred when there are fields created with the same names.

When you create two fields with the same names, it might get confusing when you are setting a condition and you wouldn’t know which field is which.

For example,

If you have created a field ‘address’ - and set a visibility condition to it saying the ‘address’ field will be only visible if you have entered the ‘Phone number.’

But if there are two fields that say ‘Phone Number’ - it will be difficult to set a visibility condition since both the fields have the same name.

Both of these fields ‘Phone Number’ will have different unique identifiers. You can check the unique identifier and then set the condition accordingly.

4. Validity Conditions

Validity Condition in the property for Photo is used to specify a condition.

If you set any validity condition, it implies that the Photo will only be valid if it satisfies the condition that you have set.

It can be set by specifying the condition - you can do that by clicking ‘condition not specified.’

For example, You might create a field ‘Apartment Photo’ which will be only valid if the user chooses ‘Yes’ option in the ‘Do you stay in an apartment?’

Validations can help you control the type of input during the filling of a form by the user.

You can also customize an error message that you want to display by typing the message in ‘Validity Error Message.’ This message will be displayed when the validity condition does not match with the given input.

You can write an error message that could be “This field is applicable for people in apartments only.”

5. Generate Public URL for Accessing Photos

Generate Public URL for Accessing Photos is a property that can be set to ‘Yes,’ if you want to export data to some other platform in future.

If the property is set to ‘No,’ the images will not be visible when the data is exported.

For example, when you set the property as ‘Yes’ and export the data later into a spreadsheet, images can be seen in the sheet. Otherwise, images will not be seen.
