I want to be able to add pictures to my form as I am doing something. I would like to be able to just take the picture and have itt upload right then rather then jumping programs to try and add a picture. I am using a surface pro 4.

I tried editing a record with a file attachment on my iPhone and it allows me to take a picture or choose one off the camera roll.

I only know it works on my iPhone.  I don't have a Surface Pro.  I'm sure the functionality varies by device.

How did you do it on your iphone? I might be able to make it work for the surface.

I'm in edit mode on the record and click the link to choose file and the iPhone just gives me several actions to choose from.  It is just how the iPhone behaves for Quick Base File attachment fields.
