Filling up the forms are no brainer. Forms are designed to achieve maximum results in the small screen size and therefore may contain multiple tabs.

If images are enabled, The last tab helps user click or select pictures and add them to the report being created. After images have been added, markings can be made on the image. To do this, click on the image thumbnail. In the next screen, you can pan the image using your fingers. "Mark" stops the image panning. Touching the image at any point now, adds a circular mark at that point and prompts for a text entry. This can be very useful for pointing out defects as in quality control/ inspections. "Save" to save the annotation and exit from the image editor.

If the form and all its tabs are complete. Click the Save Button on top of screen and choose "Save as draft" or "Mark Complete". This can be done from any Tab of the opened form. Saving saves the form as a draft. Marking as complete marks it as ready for upload. However, no data is sent automatically. Users can send all filled up reports together in a batch at a later time. This is a powerful feature allowing complete offline report creation.
