I have a mounted tablet and would like to use a bluetooth shutter remote to take photos inside a Survey123 form while we walk along rather that manually handle the tablet.  Anyone had any success with this?

Hi Dion,

Can you supply information on the remote shutter control?  In doing a bit of reading, it appears that they work by supplying a keyboard signal equivalent to the hardware capture button of device (i.e., volume up in iOS).  The Survey123 camera currently does not support the hardware and is unlikely to support the remote.  I've added this as a potential enhancement.

Hello James, thanks for the reply.  An example of a shutter we are using is https://camkix.com/products/camkix-wireless-bluetooth-camera-shutter-remote-control-for-smartphones-...
