Annotation Tools

You can rename the image in the Filename box. The system will automatically remove or replace any characters that will prevent the file from saving.

You can choose from a selection of colours and pen sizes when annotating the image. There are undo and redo buttons available for any mistakes.

Once you have completed the annotation, click on the tick on the top right hand side of the screen to save your annotated image to the job.

Selecting from the gallery

When you select photos from your device gallery, you will now be presented with the Edit Gallery page before the photos are saved to the job.

You can then edit each image individually before you save them to the job. You can delete any individual image, or select 'Back' to remove all images from the gallery without saving them to the job. When you have edited and renamed all of the images you want, select the tick to add them to the job.

Once you add the images to the job, you will not be able to edit them again.

Improved Notifications

Recently, we have received some reports of surveys not downloading to the app and appointments not syncing from the app in very rare cases. As well as improving the stability in this area, we have also added more notifications to the app to ensure that users are aware of the issue and what they need to do to resolve it.

This message will be displayed if a particular appointment has failed to sync as expected Sync_Issue.png

This message will be displayed if surveys have failed to download to the app as expected.

Photos on Enhanced Surveys

When completing Enhanced Surveys on your mobile app, you can take images directly from the survey. Please note, there is still an issue with the number of photos you can add to a survey which we are continuing to work on.
