This article will guide you through steps to add photos taken on your phone to Swept's cleaning instructions. If you are a manager and want to quickly add photos to cleaning instructions to show additional details,  this is a GO TO article for you.

Step 1. Take photos

Take a photo of the item/room that you want your staff to pay attention to using your phone.

Step 2. Edit photos

Use a photo editing software to add arrows or text onto the photos. We recommend using Skitch. Please note that text added on photos cannot be translated using our translation feature under cleaning instructions. Also, photos cannot be seen by SMS App users. For example “Please clean here weekly” cannot be seen by SMS App users unless you have the same text written as description.

Step 3. Upload photos to your computer.

We suggest using cloud storage service like Google Drive to allow your photos to sync between your phone and computer.

After you finished editing your photos using Skitch, save them to Google Drive on your phone and allow those photos to sync with your Google Drive on your computer. This way, you don’t need to connect your phone to your computer to transfer your photos over.

Step 4. Upload photos to Cleaning Instruction on Manager’s Web App

Click the “Cleaning Instruction” icon on the location you want to edit on your Locations page.

Click on the “Edit Instructions” button on the right.
To add an image click on the “Insert/edit image” icon.

A pop-up will appear. Click on the file folder icon by the “Source” field.

Browse your computer for the image and click “Open”
Click “Ok” to add the image to the document.
Once your instructions are set click on “Save Instructions”.
