Upload a Photo to the Photos tool so that it Populates in the Daily Log

Objective

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

Background

Photos on the Daily Log  allows 'Standard' and 'Admin' users on both the Daily Log AND Photos tools to optionally add the photos uploaded to the Photos tool directly to the new Photos Log in the Daily Log tool.

    • 'Standard' and above permissions on the the project's Photos tool.
    • 'Standard' and above permissions on the project's Daily Log tool.
  • Prerequisites:

  • Additional Information:

    • Photos will be added to the day indicated in the photo's capture information. 
    • If capture data is not found on the image, any image added to the Photos tool will be added to the Daily Log based on the day the photo was uploaded.

    Note: All photos will be uploaded to the Photos Log in the Daily Log tool on the day that corresponds to the taken date. If capture data is not found on the image, any image added to the Photos tool will be added to the Daily Log based on the day the photo was uploaded.
