Signature feature

Hi there,

I am really glad that CommCare has the signature feature. I noticed that
the image is saved to the device and some of the users were concerned about
their signature being on devices. is there a way to prevent it from
copying to the image gallery on the device? or encrypt the image at least?

Kind regards,
Ameera

Ameera,

Unfortunately neither of this is possible within CommCareODK at the moment.
You can tell Android that you don’t want media in a certain folder being
indexed by adding a file called .nomedia to that folder (read more here
http://www.addictivetips.com/mobile/how-to-prevent-a-directory-from-being-scanned-by-android-gallery/).
However, you’d have to do this yourself - enter CommCare’s domained folder
on the SD card and add this file either via USB or an Android text editor
app. Its also worth noting that this is basically a voluntary opt out that
"well behaved" applications will respect, but are not forced to.

If you want to get this supported within CommCareODK, I’d recommend adding
the idea to UserVoice https://dimagi.uservoice.com/ and our dev team will
review the idea.

Best,
Will
