Understanding and using the Drawing element

The Drawing element allows the user to make a sketch, take a photo or choose a picture from a mobile device (Photo Library) and then annotate it to report a problem, for example. champ-dessin-kizeo-forms Example. You are a real estate agent and you make an assessment of the apartments that you rent. The drawing field is a tool that you can use when you notice a defect during your initial inspection or degradation after a tenant moves out.

Or when you have a car rental service business. Kizeo Forms can be used to make an inspection of your vehicles before they leave and when the customer returns it.

The drawing element can be used as evidence. You will no longer hear “It was not me who did it! It was already there!”.

Drawing element's options.

Once your  Drawing element is inserted in your form, several options are available to you when you open it on your mobile device:

  • Change the colour of features.
  • Change the thickness of features.

  • Select an image from your gallery and annotate it directly (modify the options if necessary).

Use a background image.

You can add a background to your drawing.
  • To add a background, go to the option of your element.
