The media section enables you to record activities, special events and
moments to coincide with activity recording. This can also form evidence for regulators and enable family members who are connected to share in the joy and fun their loved one is having, saving memories for years to come.

Adding Photos & Videos to a Service User's Profile

To add media press the 'Add' button on the right hand side which will display two options. Click on 'Media'. 

This will open the upload window where you can upload media directly from your device. 

From this window you can select the folder you would like the media to be saved in by clicking on the drop down menu where it says 'Uncategorised'.

If you are using a computer, you can drag and drop media where it says to from your desktop.

  • Give the photo or video a title

  • Give the photo or video a description

Group Media: Adding media all service users can see

You can make several adjustments to folders by clicking on the wheel icon next to the folder's name.

When you click on the wheel icon, you this screen will open up:

From here you can:

  • And select people who can also add media to the folder (select 'Groups' if you want to add All Staff or All Service Users or select 'Individuals' if you want to select specific users). 

Remeber to hit 'Save' in the top right hand corner when you are finished with your edits.
