How To Add and Display Images, Videos and Sound Files to a Survey


SurveyToGo enables you to attach a picture or any other media content, like Word files, sounds, videos etc.. to a specific question of a survey and then enables the surveyor to view that content while he/she is on the relevant question. This is very useful for when you need to show a picture of a product and then ask questions about it.

 How to do it?

 To add content to a question:

  1. Open up SurveyToGo Designer
  2. Select the relevant question and switch to the Advanced tab:
  3. Click the “Attachments” link:
  4. You will then see the question attachments screen from which you can either select a previous loaded attachment or add a new one. To add a new one, click the “New” button:
    add file.jpg
  5. Click the OK button to close the window, and then ok again to continue:
  6. That’s it. Save a deploy the survey.

Viewing the attachment on the device

In order to view your attachment, you can choose between showing it in the questions body or showing it through the menu.
By default it would be through the menu.
Through your device you can choose to view the attachments: (e.g. emulator)

If you wish to show it as a question body, you should attach the attachment to an ‘Empty’ question, then through the questions ‘Advanced’ tab, you can modify the attachment to be displayed in the questions body:

Please notice that there are several configurations for choosing the display attributes.
You can choose those which suit your requirements.

Once a media file is attached to the question, by default, you'll see a "View" button on screen that once you press it, the media file will be displayed:

Insert a picture as embedded HTML image file in the question's body

With picture files, you can add those as an HTML image embedded in the question's body, instead of attach them to the question as shown above.

To add a picture to the question's body, click on the "Insert Picture" button in the question's View tab:
