    Hi Troy,

    I know the request would be to do this in GoCanvas, but you can set up this type of functionality using a Zapier integration to something like Google Drive or Dropbox. 

    You'd create a Zap to take a GoCanvas Submission and create a new file in Google Drive. Then map the photo field in GoCanvas to the File in Google Drive (or wherever): 

    I'd recommend putting them into a folder for easier maintenance, but that's totally up to you :) There's a lot you can do here to make it easy to navigate. At the end of the day though, you'd be able to set it up to do exactly what you're requesting.

    Hi Sara, is there a new solution to this situation? I am trying to see if GOCanvas will be appropriate for our usage. The functionality I am looking for is to be able to view/share photos only if and when needed and then also have the same photos embedded in the survey form with relevance to the building they were taken at. I would also like to be able to view metadata on the photo such as creation date and GPS coordinates. Also we should be able to load/download photos in full resolution.

    Howdy OnSwitch Team,

    Thank you for taking the time to comment and upvote on this feature request!

    At this time, there is no direct way for Admins to view photos across multiple submissions from the GoCanvas website. The Zapier workaround suggested by Sara is the best option to pull photos from multiple submissions into a separate folder or drive for sharing or viewing.

    Items from the Community and other feedback get reviewed on a regular basis for consideration by our Development teams. Making a comment and upvoting on feature requests ensures these items are recognized, so we appreciate the effort!

    Concerning metadata, photos taken within GoCanvas do contain the creation date, as well as some details on the type of device used to capture the image.

    The GPS coordinates are not included on the photo metadata, but using a GPS Field within GoCanvas could be an option to collect the location details. Here is a link to a Help Center topic with more details on using a GPS Field within GoCanvas.

    You can adjust the compression settings for photos on an App-by-App basis, and there are some recommendations for newer Android devices.

    If you have a need for higher resolution photos, please feel free to get in touch with our Support Team. Give them an idea of: 

    • Which app(s) is this request for?
    • How any images are included per submission (on average) for each app?
    • How many submissions are done per day, week, or month (on average) for each app?

    Thanks Chip. With the Zapier workaround, do you know if Sharepoint  is one of the sites it will work with for exporting photos?

    It looks like SharePoint has not set up integrations with Zapier, so it wouldn't be available for the workaround described above. According to Zapier's website, SharePoint is a highly requested integration partner.

    For more information on how to use GoCanvas with Zapier, I would advise checking out this Help Center topic. You can also see the list of available integrations through Zapier on their website.
