Data Mapping for Multimedia Data on Collect Forms

This article details how to configure data mapping for multimedia data (e.g., photos, files, etc.) recorded in Collect.


1.Create a field in the Form Setup page in the Form Designer and set the Field Type to Image.

2.Select the Data Mapping button to open the Data Mapping window.

3.Create a mapping that assigns the Files_v1 section of the format as the Target Format Table.

4.Create a new field mapping and set the Field Type to File.

5.Select the source field (i.e., the field created in Step 1).

6.Save and click OK.


Note: To link a multimedia file to another record, such as a location or sample, utilize the "Link Mapping To" drop-down menu and select a previously configured Data Mapping set. This feature is supported in the EDGE and Collect Inspection EDD formats.
