Single or multiple images can be added. Notes can also be submitted by the responder on the ground.

When you click into Comments & Images, you can then change the title heading to make it more relevant to your form.
Below the Notes and Images title you will see two checkboxes in blue. These are:-
Allow images - select this option to allow only images to be added. The app then displays only the option to add an image.
Allow notes - select this option to allow comments only. The application displays only the option to add a comment.
Filename - Allows you to change the filename of the image. You can use simple text or even use some previous answers within the response.
Just go into the form builder and edit the image component in your form. You will see a checkbox for Filename.
Once selected a Filename box will appear and when you click into this you will see a prefilled dropdown menu for the questions components within your form. You can select a component from the dropdown or enter free text if you require.

Then click the Validation Rules button on the bottom right of the component. lightbox appears where you can now see the two fields where you can set the minimum and maximum amounts of files that can be uploaded by the responder.
