What do I do if I need to capture more than one Item?

The Task I am working on really needs me to take more than one picture, or the name of more than one person. How do I do that in PoliceBox?

The ability to capture 'more than one' of something is really easy in PoliceBox and will largely depend upon how the business process has been designed.  But if designed with ease-of-capture in mind, the concept of 'repeating fields' can be used.

Where 'repeating max' has been set at the field level on a Task in the App Designer, the Task will then display a '+' symbol in your App.  It means that tapping on the '+' allows the field to be repeated thus allowing you to capture more.  Its ideal for investigation work where more than one picture is called-for.
