Hi Ayoub,

What high-level problem are you trying to solve? Why do you need the
photos named by a variable in the form?

Thanks,

Yaw

Hi Yaw,
Am collecting data from 100 patients daily.
for each form am required to take a photo of the patients x-ray forms.
I download the data using briefcase, here it creates a media file and dumps
all pictures, I have to manually look at image url then search in media
folder.
I would like to have the photos named by patient name which is a variable
within the form so that lay users can tell which photo belongs to which form

Thanks Yaw

Hi Ayoub,

To my knowledge there is still no way to manually name photos on the device
(if there is, I'd LOVE to hear about it!). Seems you've been facing this
issue for some time, I still use the method I previously described to you
HERE
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/opendatakit/lloyd$20banwart$20photo|sort:relevance/opendatakit/fW4s7Px277Q/HhoQTlrdAAAJ.
But this is for largely 'one time' analysis, for an ongoing (daily)
activity, I can see how this could be very tedious.

Hoping someone in the community can come up with a better solution though
-- I can't help but think publishing to google fusion tables* may* provide
you with a quicker solution which could be much more automated

Ayoub,

I think this is a very reasonable feature request.

I don't know exactly how we'll do it, but it has to start from the
spec level and work its way down into the tools. I've filed it at
https://github.com/opendatakit/xforms-spec/issues/128 so we can get
the discussions started. Lloyd, if you have this use-case, it'd be
good to add that to the issue.

Thanks,

Yaw

Hello everyone,

What if we add an extra button(optional) in the image widget for renaming the photo after it has been captured or selected from SD card. This name would be concatenated along with the system generated name, eg. 20384498114323-patient1.png.

Regards,
Shobhit

What if we add an extra button(optional) in the image widget for renaming the photo after it has been captured or selected from SD card

I would prefer to add "rename option" to "Edit prompt menu" then if you click long you can see two options "Remove response" and "Rename file".


(Lloyd Owen Banwart) #9

In my experience, I would not trust enumerators to accurately enter the
correct meta data for each image. On large scale data collection activities
where enumerators are capturing multiple images per survey for continuous
days on end, requiring them to provide the accurate meta data would likely
result in very inconsistent naming conventions. A more systematic/automated
solution may be more appropriate. I'm a user, not a programmer, so I can't
gauge the difficulty of these suggested changes, but adding a prefix to the
android generated image name of the image ${Q#} concatenated with another
variable (likely a respondent unique ID), may be a more reliable option.

@Shobhit_Agarwal
I'm seconding what Lloyd has said - having users set the filename is not reliable.
I think auto-populating based on a field is a better option.


(Madhava Murari Das) #11

This is one feature even i would like to have. To have the images renamed using fields in the form. this can greatly help me in capturing the visual improvement in the subjects i am working upon.


(Oscar Orlando) #12

This would be awesome! I think that the name should be concatenated fields.
Thanks!
