There’ll be times when you’re out on a job visit and take photos without actually working from within the ServiceM8 app.  Perhaps one of your mates has texted you a photo of an issue that needs sorting, or you’ve found and saved a photo of a product from the internet.

If you’ve been using the ServiceM8 app for a while, you might have thought that it was impossible to easily add existing photos directly from your phone. Instead, you might have tried workarounds such as emailing the photos to yourself and then attaching them through the web version, but you can actually upload them through the ServiceM8 app itself.

1. Find and open the job you’d like to add the photos to
