Introduction

In addition to offering standard survey elements like lists, sliders, radio buttons,  Launchcloud also offers more in-depth media capture capabilities, allowing users to create more advanced, detailed forms. These features can all be found under the Media & More tab inside our Form Builder.


Navigating to the Media & More Tab

In order to add media to your form > You must first navigate to the Form Builder Toolkit which is located in the top-right hand corner of the page > Then you will need to select the second tab called Media & More


Embed an Image

There are two ways to embed a static image in a Launchcloud form. The first way is via the Media & More Tab in the form builder tool kit (as seen below). The second option is via the Form Elements button located down the left-hand side of your form. More can be found out about embedding different types of media with the Form Elements button by clicking here.

In order to navigate through the media and more tab to the Embed Image feature > First drag the Embed Image button and drop it in the area of your form where you want it to be located > Next you will need to click the Upload Image button on the Embed Image form element >  Next choose your image from your files and press Open.


Draw Over Image

Image draw-over is a bit more unique and offers a lot of room for user customization. This option lets you upload an image that you want your users to draw or doodle over using Launchcloud’s built-in photo editor.

The photo editor has two features.

  1. When the icon in the bottom right corner is in the shape of a pencil, the user can doodle on the image.
  2. When the icon is a lowercase “a,” then they can write on the image. Click the colored circle in the bottom left corner to change the color of your cursor.

In order to navigate through the media and more tab to the Draw Over Image feature > First drag the Draw Over Image button and drop it in the area of your form where you want it to be located > Next 

Images uploaded to the draw-over feature stack on top of each other, meaning responders are able to upload more than one image. To edit the image > click on the thumbnail of the photo to the right of the camera icon.

Since image draw-over fields are relatively uncommon in an online form or survey, users may not immediately understand what’s expected of them. For this reason, we recommend including some instructive text in the form itself. To do this > navigate to the Layout tab > include a Free Text field > then write a short message.


Take a Picture

The Take a Picture feature gives you the ability to collect photos in a live form. Take a Picture allows the responder to upload a picture from their own device to your form. To do this > Navigate to the Media & More tab in the Form Builder Toolbox > Then drag the Take a Picture field onto the form.

When a user opens the form, they’ll see an icon of a camera. Clicking this will launch a file uploader or the camera option on mobile devices, allowing them to add whatever photo they’d like. A user will be able to upload as many files as they need.


Draw Over Picture

Picture draw-over is a bit more unique and offers a lot of room for user customization. At first glance, this field appears very similar to the “Take Picture” field. However, once a user uploads a photo, they’ll then be able to add doodles and text to the photo using Launchcloud’s built-in photo editor.

The photo editor has two features.

  1. When the icon in the bottom right corner is in the shape of a pencil, the user can doodle on the image.
  2. When the icon is a lowercase “a,” then they can write on the image. Click the colored circle in the bottom left corner to change the color of your cursor.

In order to navigate through the Media & More tab to the Draw Over Picture feature > First drag the Draw Over Picture button and drop it in the area of your form where you want it to be located.  A Take Picture element will appear. 

Once the form is published, users should click the Take Picture Icon to either upload pictures from their device or activate their camera to take a photo.

After a photo has been uploaded > users should click the photos they have uploaded, which will now be surrounding the Take Picture button > then choose which ones they want to edit (as seen below).
