HEAT – Adding a Live Image to a form

TO ADD A LIVE IMAGE TO A FORM


  1. Begin by creating a Binary field in the table.
  2. In the Table Editor, click the New Field Wizard button:

    - Type a name for the field, such as “ScreenCapture”. Add a Description if desired

    - Select the Binary Type

    - Click Next. Accept all subsequent defaults and continue to click Next. In the last wizard screen,
       click Finish.

    - Click Add Form to Field



  3. In the Table Editor, click the New Field Wizard button:
  4. Click the Edit Set tab.
  5. On the Form, right-click the field, in this example - “ScreenCapture” and select Attributes. The Attributes dialog box opens.
  6. Click the Image tab, then select the Live Image check box.
  7. In the Field drop-down list, select the binary field you created.
  8. Click the Advanced button to specify limitations for uploaded images. In Upload Options dialog box, you can limit the image size and image file size to optimize performance, and specify if an uploaded image will also become an attachment to the record:

    Maximum image dimensions - The maximum image size. The default maximum for optimal system performance is 640 x 480.


    • Compression Level - The higher the compression level, the lower the image quality, but higher compression levels conserve space and optimize performance. The default is 50%.

    • Maximum image file size - The maximum file size in bytes. The default maximum for optimal system performance is 1 MB (1000 KB).

    • Allow Original as Attachment - If the image is uploaded (rather than pasted), the image will also become an attachment to the record.

  9. Click OK to close the Upload Options dialog box.
  10. Close the Attributes dialog box.
  11. Save and Commit the Edit Set. HEAT users will be able to upload or paste an employee photo when creating or editing a call Record.
