We are experiencing some odd behavior with attachments with version 2.4.72 of Survey123. When our field crew tries to add a photo from their iPad, only the link to the photo displays (not the photo itself). When the form is uploaded, the attachment is missing. If a new photo is taken from Survey123, it uploads without issue.
Any ideas as to what might be the source of the problem?
Thanks very much for your reply. I believe the field staff is using iPad Air devices and they are on iOS version 11.0.3. They were able to add pictures from the camera roll before updating to Survey123 version 2.4.72. The survey itself was created with an older version of Survey123 (2.3.x)
I have an older iPad that is maxed out at iOS 9.3.5 that is running Survey123 version 2.4.72 and I am able to successfully add pictures from the camera roll.
Thanks very much for any insight you can provide.
IOS 11 uses a new image format (HEIC) that Survey123 does not currently support. The user will need to update their device settings to disable HEIC. This will force iOS 11 to store all images as JPEG. You can disable HEIC from settings > camera > formats.
I have the same problem as the one described in this topic. I do have an iPhone 6s with iOS 12.0 and tried to disable HEIC but I don't have the option to disable this in my settings > camera > formats.
Thanks in advance!
I don't think that iPhone 6 would support HEIC/HEIF format, which is likely why you are not seeing the option to disable it. For reference....Using HEIF or HEVC media on Apple devices - Apple Support.
Have the pictures that you are attempting to upload in the field app been taken with the iPhone 6 native camera, or are you accessing them from somewhere else? Please try to confirm what format the photos that you are uploading are in.
Which version of the Survey123 field app are you using on your iPhone? Does the same behavior occur in multiple surveys?
Can you please try to create a brand new survey using the latest version of Suvey123 Connect, with one image question, and see if the issue is still encountered when attempting to upload a photo? Also, what happens when you try to take a picture within the Survey123 field app?
