Added ability to upload images within edit screens

The latest version (22.12.1) adds ability to upload images within edit screens. Soon this will evolve into ability to show images of products on invoices, orders, quotes and other improvements.

On selected forms, you will see new section:

You can use it to upload scanned document such as invoice from supplier. The file you can upload must be in png or jpg format.

Over attachments, the advantage is that you can upload image while creating new transaction which means you can view the scanned document and edit form at the same time.

This feature is not much on its own but it is a foundation for more things to come in this direction.

Is it possible pdf could be added. Almost all of my suppliers provide invoices in pdf format

image formats sounds OK for that

I will explore that option. But I think it shouldn’t be a problem since there is mature library PDF.js which can inline PDF documents within HTML page.

PDF will be great since picture format does not support multiple pages

nice option but can you do that for check box feature if check yes then upload image button shown in screen

How can we have the link of this uploaded image? is it possible…?

I think this PDF option would be a great idea. All my customers provide me with a PDF on invoices and Purchase orders.

Any chance you could put it in the dev pipeline?

Having used it as a key part of my own applications, I can confirm PDF.js is great. Works well even on lower-powered mobile devices.

Regarding Manager, I mostly upload PDFs as well, like others that have replied here.

Most of my expenses are for online businesses that send (or provide downloads) of the invoice, rather than me receiving it physically. Being able to upload the PDF file(s) directly on the edit screen would mean I don’t need to save and then attach the invoice separately.

However, this is ultimately a minor feature & the existing process of uploading it on the detail view instead does work. So I wouldn’t be devastated if support for PDFs here was a lower priority.

How do you do that? Maybe I missed it in the guides, but I am curious.

Just search the Guides for attachment.

What if there are multiple images that need to be associated with the transaction?
Sometimes we attach multiple images to transactions.

Also, we use the attachment column to visually identify transactions with missing receipt images.
Would it be possible to add a column showing that the transaction has an image attached?
