Field Dailies Box

Using Capture mode in the Field Dailies Box app on iOS and Android

On iOS and Android, the Box app enables you to add a convenient Capture widget to your device's home screen so you can directly launch into camera view when you're on the go.  Currently, the Capture widget is the only way to enter Capture mode.

Capture mode in the Box app enables you to:

  • Quickly and easily launch into the Box app's camera view on your iOS or Android device and immediately start snapping photos for upload to Box.
  • Select an upload folder where you want Box to store all your photos when snapped from Capture mode.

  1. Press and hold an empty area on your device's home screen until a "+" button appears in the top-left of your device's screen.
