Upload Photos to the Site Diary from the Photos Tool

Objective

To upload photos to the Photos tool so that you can reference them in both the Site Diary tool and the Photos tool.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Standard' or 'Admin' on the the project's Photos tool.
      AND
      'Standard' or 'Admin' on the project's Site Diary tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • Only Public photos can be added to the Photos section of the Site Diary tool.
      • If the project's Photos tool is configured to have photos set to private by default, you will not be able to upload photos to the Photos section of the Site Diary.
        Important! The following settings in the Configure Advanced Settings page for the Photos tool must be disabled in order for photos to be added to the Site Diary tool using this method:
        • Clear the tickbox next to 'Make Site Diary photos private by default'.

    • Photos will be added to the site diary that corresponds with the date that the photos were taken.
    • If capture data is not found on the image, any image added to the Photos tool will be added to the Site Diary based on the day the photo was uploaded.
