Here are 7 nifty things you can do with Formitize’s Advanced Drawing Feature:

1. 5 Layers
Build up your drawing using the five different layers of the Drawing tool. The layers include the Background, Grid, Content, Text, and Legend. You can disable layers while drawing. You can also decide which layers are visible in the output report by simply touching on the indicators.

2. Backgrounds
Upload photos, images, floor plans, or sketches as a background to the drawing tool. You can Stretch, Ratio Resize, or Tile the background before to ensure best fit.

3. Import – Camera
Take a photo with the device camera and draw straight over the top – with or without the background grid. Add text and images as required.

4. Import – Photo Library
Images can also be imported from your device photo library so you can take multiple photos for use in the report and then select the photos you want to draw or add comments on.

5. Import – Resources
Upload documents such as floor plans and maps from the office into the Resources section of the Management Portal and the field users have immediate access to them in the field saving so much time and travel. The field user then uploads the plan into the drawing tool and can immediately draw and sketch onto the image.

6. Legend
You can build a customized Legend of icons that can be dragged and dropped onto your image.

7. Form Integration – Icon Count
Taking the Legend feature one step further… And this is cool!
When you drag a Legend icon onto the image, Formitize actually counts the number of icons as they are added. So for example, an electrician can drag and drop the Power Socket icon onto the Floor plan image. Not only does the floor plan then show exactly where the power sockets have been added, it also actually counts the number added. This number can then be incorporated into the pricing section of a quote form for example and automatically prices the job with the detailed floor plan attached.

These are just some of the many ways that you can maximize Formitize’s Advanced Drawing Tool for your business. You can tweak your app to customize this feature and be as creative as you can. See for yourself how wonderful this tool is for your daily needs. Your mobile workforce will surely thank you for it as they experience a myriad of benefits firsthand.
