The sketch element

The Sketch element allows you to take a photo from your mobile device (or import it from your device’s library) and then add written note(s) on top of it.  It can either be text, shape(s) or manual drawing(s).

The sketch options

Firstly, insert your sketch field in your form from the online platform. Then, the field user entering the digital form on his mobile device will be able to modify the picture with the following options :

  • Insert a shape (arrow, rectangle, circle),
  • Insert text,
  • A link with a table
  • Add a photo

Use the sketch element

Let’s take our first example of the walk-through inspection in an apartment. When inspecting the apartment, you realize that one of the plugs in the living room is not working.

You can take a picture of this plug, add your comment and an arrow on top.

  • Take your picture.
  • Add your text, choose the color.
  • Add an arrow and choose the color.
  • Then finally, press OK.

The sketch element and incident reports

This time, we will use the Sketch element in order to annotate the incidents encountered during our security rounds on our company’s plan. We will therefore use two new functions: the background image and the badges.

In the online web platform

Insert in your form :

  • a sketch element (which will be used to indicate areas of interest)
  • a table element with all the points to be checked.

From the Badge tab, link your Sketch element to your Incidents table.

This way, each time a new badge is added via the sketch tool, we will be able to enter a new incident.

From the Badge tab, link your Sketch element to your Incidents table.
