Please note: This feature is currently only available to the mobile versions of Collect (5.0.0 on iOS and 4.3.0 on Android) or later, which is currently being released worldwide. If this feature is not yet available on your device, please be sure to keep an eye out for this update.
A picture says a thousand words, but sometimes you need just a few more to get your ideas across. With one of our latest updates, we've got you covered! You can now add captions to any of the items you have stored in the Collect app, which can be seen by the people you share those items with.
To add a text note to any item in the Collect app, first inspect the image to see a full screen preview. From there, tap on the caption button to add your note to the item:
When adding new an individual item to Collect, you are also given the option to add a caption right away, but when adding multiple items this doesn’t apply. Currently, you can only have 1 caption linked to an item at a time.
Anybody you've shared your boards with will be able to see the captions you leave when they use on of our Collect apps, and the people you invite to edit your boards with you can add and edit their own captions, too! Not sure how to give people editing access to your boards? Check out this article.
Any items that have a caption attached to them will have a symbol located in the corner of the board, that you can tap to show or hide the caption.
If you ever need to edit a caption or delete it, all you need to do is tap on the item that contains the caption and select 'Edit'.
From there, you can edit and save a caption, or click the icon to delete the caption.
