Hi everybody,

I noticed it is now possible to integrate a "survey_guide.pdf" to the survey as attached file. What are the functionalities of this attachement? Can I link the survey (e.g. tooltips) with this pdf? How is it accessible from the mobile device?

Thank you for your help!

Hello Alex,

The Survey Guide can be linked to the survey through the survey files functionality ( in the "general" tab of the Survey Designer) : alt text

Once the PDF file is added to the survey and you export it to Collect Mobile it can be seen in the app menu:

If you add the survey guide PDF to a Collect Earth survey you can see it from the Help Menu!

Hi all together,

we tried to connect to the survey guide using the newest version of collect mobile and having added a survey guide. Still, we unfortunately weren't able to find the guide. Do you have any other suggestions?

Kind regards,

Alex and Lydia
