Upload Images and Files to Custom Forms
Custom Forms are documents that are completed on tickets to ensure that the sales/repair process is thorough and complete. A few examples of forms that can be created are:
- Repair Intake Forms
- Device Condition Forms
- Pre/Post Repair Checklists
Custom Forms include the feature of uploading images and/or files when submitting the form. This allows techs to upload photos of a device during any stage of the workflow, as well as upload any additional supporting documents that may be relevant to the ticket.
Note: RepairQ provides cloud storage for uploading images and files for all plans at no additional cost. Users receive a limited amount of storage, based on their subscription — Essential (10GB), Advanced (50GB), and Professional (100GB).

Creating a Custom Form with Image and File Uploads
1. On the Navigation Bar, go to Settings -> Location Settings.
2. On the Settings Overview screen, click the Tickets category on the left column. From the expanded list of options, click Custom Forms.
3. On the Custom Forms page, click Add Custom Form.
4. Start building your custom form. Take note of the Location ID, as a form can be created for all locations or a single location. For the Object Type field, we recommend selecting all ticket types, so you have the ability to upload files for any ticket situation.
Note: We also recommend setting the Required When dropdown to Never, because you may not want images required for every ticket.
5. Once you are satisfied with your changes, click Save field group settings.
6. After saving your form, a Form Fields section will appear at the bottom of the page. Click the Select field to add to the group dropdown box and select Image to add a field for image uploads on your form.
7. On the New Image Field pop-up, name your field and add a description of the field. If you would like to print images uploaded on the form, make sure to click the checkbox next to Print Visible?. Additionally, make sure the checkbox next to Active? is selected, then click Save Changes.
8. Back on the Form Fields section, add another field and select File to add a field for file uploads on your form.
9. On the New File Field pop-up, name your field and add a description of the field. If you would like to print files uploaded on the form, make sure to click the checkbox next to Print Visible?. Additionally, make sure the checkbox next to Active? is selected, then click Save Changes.

Upload an Image to a Custom Form

Note: You can click Save Draft if you would like to save the form as a draft if you need to add additional files/photos before submitting the form.
