Taking pictures of room and smoking damage, DND signs, or a photo for simple documentation is extremely easy in PurpleCloud.
It is easier to take and upload photos to PurpleCloud CR using a mobile device such as a phone or tablet but it certainly can be done from a desktop as well (take the photo with a device, upload and save it on your hard drive and then upload it to PurpleCloud CR).
There are two ways to upload photos into PurpleCloud CR.
- First, take a picture with your mobile device and then upload it to a message or checklist.
- Take a photo when creating a message or while completing a checklist
