Bulk extraction of Photos from Forms/Tasks

Currently the only way to access the photo file contained within a form is to download the form report and then download a photo from within a form. Currently the only work around is to take photos out of the Field View app with the camera function then import photos into a form or task from the gallery on the tablet. There should be a function to download all the photos direct without having to open each individual form to access them. In a scenario where a lot of photos are required from specific days in the project, this is currently a very time consuming operation which should be easily resolved.

    Ben,

    The photos available in from FieldView do not have a full set of meta data.  However this is a great idea if FieldView captured the photo with all the metadata, i.e. gps location, camera, data and time taken, etc.

    Agreed, basic photo meta (including GPS) and binary image data should be available (in form or task context) both through Yellowfin and the API to allow us to pull the data into our common data environment.

    All:

    We are moving towards implementation of this request, but would like to have a discussion, possibly over WebEx to ensure that we deliver the proper functionality. Who on this thread is interested in a discussion on this topic?

    I am wondering how this WebEx discussion went last October and if there are any new updates to when and if this will be implemented? I am more than happy to share additional thoughts on the subject if needed for development.
