You can set the vWork Android app so that photos taken while completing a job in vWork aren't saved in your device's storage. This can help if you have limited storage on your device.
When you disable vWork from saving photos to the device's storage, photos are still saved with the job when the job syncs to the vWork server. Photos are deleted from your device's storage when the job leaves the Jobs screen in the vWork app.
Stop photos from saving to your device's storage
To stop vWork from saving photos on your Android device's storage:
- From the Jobs screen in the vWork Android app, tap in the red banner to open the menu.
- Tap Settings to open the vWork app settings.
- Tap Interface to open the interface settings.
- Scroll to the Attachments heading and tap the checkbox next to Keep vWork images on your phone to remove the checkmark and turn this setting off.
Save photos to your device's storage
You may choose to save photos to your devices storage if you regularly reuse the same images for different jobs and don't want to retake the same photo each time.
Make sure you check your device's 'storage'/'photos and videos' settings for the vWork app to ensure this setting works as you expect it to. To check the app permissions that Android allows, open your devices settings and than do a search for vWork.
If you have stopped vWork from saving photos to your device and want to turn this function back on, simply repeat the steps to stop photos from saving, given in the topic above, but tap to add the checkmark back at step 4.
