Capture a record

ArcGIS QuickCapture is a field data capture app that allows you to capture data fast! You can capture both the location and attributes of assets or incidents as you travel. A project author determines the arrangement of buttons, how they appear, and the information they collect. The app allows you to capture both photos and sensor information from the device.

The following steps outline how to use the QuickCapture app in the field to capture records. If you don't have a project prepared, you can use the Try it option when you sign in.

Install the QuickCapture app and sign in

To install the app and sign in, complete the following steps:

  1. Get the app from one of the app stores, or download it from the QuickCapture resources page.
  2. Start the app.
  3. Sign in using your ArcGIS organizational account that has been provisioned with a QuickCapture licence. See ArcGIS account requirements for more information.

If you do not have an ArcGIS account, you can still try QuickCapture. Click the Try it option on the sign in page to download and use one of the sample projects.

Find and download a project

The first time you sign in, you need to download a project to your device.

  1. Select Get Projects to see the projects available to download.
  2. Select the project card for the project you want to download.

    If the project is not already on your device, the download icon changes to an information icon once the download is complete. If you do not see projects to download, contact your project administrator and ask for the project to be shared with you.

Open a project and capture data

To open a project and capture data, complete the following steps:

  1. Tap a project in the gallery to open it.
  2. Tap a button to capture a field observation.

While your device is online, your captured records are automatically synced. If your device is offline, your captured records are automatically synced the next time you're online.
