For iOS:


There are two ways to go about importing or taking a photo from within the JobNimbus Mobile App.

1 - From the Home Page

  • Click the blue + icon in the top right corner.
  • Choose "Photo" from the menu.

  • Search for the record you want to associate the photo with.

The camera will automatically open once you select a Contact or Job.

To bypass taking a new photo and upload an existing image instead, click Done.

2 - From a Contact or Job Page

  • Navigate to the record you want to associate a photo with.
  • Click the blue + icon in the top right corner and select "Photo" from the dropdown.


The camera will automatically open once you click "Photo" from the action menu.

To bypass taking a new picture and upload an existing image instead, click Done.


Uploading an Existing Photo

Once you've navigated to the next screen in one of the two aforementioned ways, you will see any photos that have previously been associated with the related record. 

Then, you can:

  1. Take a new photo (detailed steps can be found below).
  2. Select multiple images at a time.
    1. A blue checkmark will appear next to the selected file(s).

    2. At the bottom of the screen (from left to right) you have the options to:
      1. Share the image elsewhere.
      2. Assign the photo to a specific Attachment Category.
      3. Permanently delete the file. This action cannot be undone.
  3. Import an image from your device's photo album.
    1. When you see the images appear, select the ones you want to upload and then click Add in the top right corner.
  4. Sort already associated images by their assigned category.
    1. A dropdown of your Attachment Categories will appear. Making a selection will filter visible files accordingly.


Taking a New Photo

When the camera opens, you will see several icons with which you can interact.

Here, you can:

  1. Adjust your flash settings by clicking the lightning bolt icon.
  2. Configure the camera settings by clicking the gear icon.
    1. Doing so will reveal another screen where you're able to:
      1. Toggle on/off photo backup, which will save any images you take within JobNimbus to your device's photo app (you will need to enable the appropriate permissions through your phone's settings).
      2. Configure the photo upload quality, which will affect upload speed, depending on your selection.

Tip: Photo quality Settings on Web supercede your Settings on Mobile. If you notice and issue with the quality of your uploaded photos, you may need to adjust your Settings on Web.

  1. Zoom in/out of the frame by using the slider.
  2. Capture a photo.
  3. Exit the camera by clicking "Done".
    1. Note: taking a photo will not automatically redirect you to the image(s) taken. You can snap multiple pictures in a row but will need to select "Done" in order to navigate out of the camera.
