Use the Photo-widget to take a photo with the device's camera or add one from your photo library. The photos will appear as a thumbnail in the PDF report and can also be attached to the email.

When you add the Photo-widget to your form, there are some settings visible in the Property screen. Check out what these options mean to set up the widget to your liking. 

1. Add a form

To get started you will need to be logged into the MoreApp Platform. Next, create a form or select an existing form. Once you have your preferred form you will need to click on Edit Form. Once you're in your form, double click on the Photo-widget to have it inserted into your form. By clicking on the pencil of the widget you will see the properties of this widget.

2. Label

Give the widget a name by typing text in the Label field.

3. Set up the Photo Quality

Most mail servers won’t allow you to send a mail that’s bigger than 25mb in total size, which for most emails, is more than enough. If your form includes a lot of photos and you’ve chosen to attach them all to the email, you can quickly reach this limit. So play around with the photo quality and see what's best for you! It depends on your use case how much quality you need. The photo quality is only applicable for photos you add using the app, not using the webclient

Best possible: This means that MoreApp does not manipulate the photo when sending.

Fast upload: MoreApp reduces the resolution of the image and applies compression. This results in the smallest file size, making uploading faster. 

High quality: This is a compromise between file size and photo quality.

4. Set up the Filename 

You can also define the filenames of photos, making it easier to identify them in Excel exports or the email attachment later on. Here you can insert any descriptive text of your choice or you can also use the placeholders by clicking on the turquoise coloured buttons. 

5. Allow selecting photo from library

If you disable this box, it is only possible to capture a new photo and you ensure that no old photo can be added from the gallery.

6. Full size preview

Select this if you want to show a full size preview of the photo in your form. On Photo 1 you can see how it looks without selecting this option. On Photo 2 you can see how it looks when selecting this option.

7. Save a copy on the device

Select this box if you want to save a copy of the photo on your device. You can find the photo in your gallery.

8. Required

Select this box if you want to the widget to be required. In that way the user has to add a photo, otherwise the form can not be sent. 

Note: Photos taken with the Photo-widget are not automatically saved on your device.

Note: It's not possible to take a photo with the webclient on your desktop
