What’s new in ArcGIS QuickCapture (May 2023)

Video recording

That is right! Configure your ArcGIS QuickCapture projects to help users associate videos with the observations they collect. Use videos to report issues, document damage and field observations.

Learn through the screenshot below how to activate video recording in your projects. You are just one click away!

Check out the new Video option offered by the QuickCapture designer.

Videos are stored in ArcGIS as attachments. This means you can view your videos from any ArcGIS app, including Instant Apps, Experience Builder, ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS dashboards!

Enhanced app linking

Use the QuickCapture app app to link to other applications remotely. Through app linking, for example, you can launch and open a QuickCapture project from another Esri app, an ArcGIS map popup, or a simple hyperlink in an email or website. Understanding app linking is vital to integrating ArcGIS QuickCapture with third-party apps in your mobile device.

This release introduces new app link syntax to help you:

Check out the following app link example: It opens a QuickCapture project, presses a button, sets an attribute value, and immediately returns to the calling mobile app.

Make your projects look great by associating icons with your QuickCapture buttons. You can upload your icons or use the QuickCapture icon gallery.

With this update, you will find a new set for trail management.
