Form-Based Worksheets (and indeed now Sessions!) allow you to create a form for your clients to fill out, comprised of text boxes, radio buttons and so forth. But sometimes in a Worksheet assignment it would be nice if your clients could provide an image or two as an answer to a question.
This is now possible with CoachAccountable Form-Based Worksheets, thanks to the newly added support for Image Prompts that are available when creating a form. Let’s take a look at how this works.
Like when adding a form input of any other variety, an Image Prompt is added by clicking the “Add form item” button on the WYSIWYG toolbar:
Pick the new “Image prompt” option in the drop down menu and you’ll find a similar (but slightly different) set of options:
In the Worksheet, an Image prompt is rendered as a clickable button with whatever caption you set:
When working on a Worksheet with an Image prompt item, clicking the button brings up the gallery browser, allowing your client to upload an image as needed and then ultimately choose an image for their answer:
As your clients fill out the Worksheet their images are popped right in:
What’s really nice about this is how well it plays with filling out a Worksheet on a smartphone with CA Mobile: when uploading a new image to the gallery (for subsequent choosing for the Worksheet) most devices give you the option to snap a photo right then and there, and upload THAT with just a few taps. As such, completing a photo journal-like Worksheet is really quick and easy.
Image Prompts in Form-Based Worksheets add a new dimension to the kinds of assignments you can setup for your clients, letting pictorial input join the usual keyboard and click-based input. If that would make a fitting aspect to the assignments you give as part of your coaching, go give them a try! It’s as simple as creating a Worksheet Template that includes one or more Image Prompts.
