Chapter 3 – Managing a Tablet Survey

About attaching files to the running surveys 

SurveyToGo is enabled by default to accept any file that is created during the survey as an attachment to the running survey result. Because of this, any pictures that you take during the survey or any sounds that you record during the survey are automatically attached to the current survey result and will be sent along with the result to the server.

Creating A Multimedia question

Multimedia questions are types of questions which allow you to choose whether it will record Picture, Sound or Video.


Now, once the survey is running, you can capture the multimedia you chose by using the action button that will be displayed in the question.

  1. Pictures:

  2. Sounds:

  3. Videos:

The Clear button will clear the latest multimedia file captured.
Of course, you can capture multiple files at once:

Any multimedia that you capture while you are in a survey is automatically bound to that survey result. Continue running the survey normally and once you synchronize the results back to the server, the pictures are synced with the results.
You can view attachments of specific results in the operations console.

Enter a result, and go to its answer’s tab, there you can see their attachments and the question the attachment was captured.


You can also view the attachment through the link to our server and save a local copy.

How to export the attached pictures/sounds
Attachments can be exported through the regular exporting wizard while exporting the results of a survey.


There are two options for exporting the attachments:

  1. ‘Include attachment Results’: If you specify this option and select a folder location, any picture attachment that was included in the results will be placed in this folder. The name of the picture will be according to the relevant SubjectID field in the results file.
  1. ‘Include attachment list’ : If checked, you can choose a csv file that will receive a list of links to the various pictures that were included in the results. This is useful if you need links to the attachments instead of the actual pictures.

Both options can be selected together.

In the last screen of the export wizard, you can specify the folder for the attachments and choose your attachment exporting configuration.


Option Description
Export Data File This is the file name that will be filled with all the results according to your selection
Include result attachments If you specify this option and select a folder location, any picture attachment that was included in the results will be placed in this folder. The name of the picture will be according to the relevant SubjectID field in the results file.
