Images in Forms

This help article is describing how you add images into a question within the form. However, if you want information on how your colleagues can collect images, you need to add the Notes and Images component.

How do I add images to questions in my forms?

This can be done very easily, but first, it might be useful to explain why adding an image can be useful when asking certain types of questions.

 

Why should I add images to my questions?

It has been said that the human brain processes an image 6000 times faster that text, so it can be very useful to add imagery to your surveys.

Some questions within the form might be reliant on whether the respondent ever saw the subject you’re talking about. For instance on the question “Have you seen the leaning tower of Pisa?” many people will instantly recall the famous tower, but some respondents might have trouble connecting the name to a particular visual experience. Once you start creating forms with images this cannot happen and therefore your forms will be more pleasant to fill out.

 

Other uses could include adding a more corporate feel to your forms for more professional data collection. For example, by including a mascot, logo or any other company visual material to the questions in your surveys, you are also achieving the recognition from your interviewees that they are responding to a survey from a trusted company.

 

Alright, how do I add Images?

Firstly you create a survey form and a question within the form itself. Once you have done this, you are able to open the questions menu hidden under the three dots. Within the menu dropdown, select “add heading image”.

A pop up window will appear, and you are now able to select one of the images you uploaded earlier. If you have not uploaded any images, you can do this by clicking the “upload new image” button. It is also possible to drag an image from your file browser right onto the same button.

Once you have uploaded it, just select the image by clicking on it. The selected image will be shown with a blue border. Once you are happy with your selection click "Ok" and the image will appear on your question.

How is this displayed in the application?

The images that you have added to your survey form will now appear within the form on the app that it is shared with.

Just open the form once you have synced it with your mobile device to view it.

 

Would you be interested in any other formats than images? For example Audio files or Videos?
