GIFs???

When did that happen?

Thank you!

Yes! But they only work if the image is linked (not uploaded).

@Peter I actually uploaded that photo! That’s why I was so surprised.

In the video, I start with a gif already uploaded then clear it.

I upload the same one, then navigate to another form (the forward button) that pulls in the photo uploaded in the previous form.

I then go back and change the photo, doing it all over again but with a different image, showing it’s actually taking what I’m uploading. Screen Recording 2018-12-28 at 06.12.34.82 PM.mp4 cl.ly

Hm, guess I need to re-examine! I would test whether the animate gif still works after it’s been synced to your data source. I was under the impression that it would stay animated as long as it’s cached, but no longer be animated after sourcing from the data source (particularly Google Drive). Maybe not??

Hmmm… checking @Peter

You can even see the gif animation starting at the same point, even though there’s a form change. Screen Recording 2018-12-28 at 07.30.46.10 PM.mp4 cl.ly

Ah, darn - Not sure what our options are, but I’ll keep you posted if I hear any updates about this!
