We are wanting to use Survey123 for a field inspection form and we were wondering if Survey123 can be set to take multiple pictures without having to set each picture as its own field. Either one picture or 12 pictures. Does anyone know if this is possible? If so, how is it done?

I've successfully created a formula for the relevant column that will hide multiple photo fields unless the previous photo field is completed - here is a screenshot of my XLS FormSurvey123 hidden multiple photo fields dependent on filling out a previous field

Was this enhancement ever completed and released (allowing for multiple photos with a repeat without pushing the images to a related table)?

is a solution to have images in repeats stored as attachments still part of the product plan? we could really use this functionality!

Hi Ismael,

Has there been any progress on this update? If not, when can we expect something?

Thank you!

you said using a repeat in your survey makes it hard to view the photos. In order to view the photo ArcGIS Pro or ArcMap is needed. can you explain that more please.

Hi Jevita,

Multiple photos will be stored as attachments to a related table of the Survey row- when you show the popup/identify window on a row, you would need to click on the related records, and then view that record's attachments

Hello James,

I do not see the attachments when viewing survey data in Pro. I have photos inside a repeat. When I click a feature I see the related records in the popup, but when I click a related record I do not see the attached photo. I cna only look at the photos one at a time by downloading them in the Map Viewer on Portal. Is there a way to download all photos from a repeat? I tried the same thing in ArcMap and do not see my photos there either. Please help. Thank you.
