This brief guide will provide instructions on how to create a Self Captures activity. We will walk you through naming the activity, setting instructions, adding activity tasks, and the process for deleting both tasks and the entire activity
Creating a Self Captures Activity
You can start by navigating to your project's Self Captures tab. Then click on the 'New Activity' button.
You will now be directed to a page that allows you to enter the details and parameters of your Self Captures activity.
Naming the Activity
Titling the activity helps to distinguish the activity from other activities in the project. The default activity name is 'My New activity '. Every activity in a project must have a different name. If the title doesn't change, the next activity created in the project will be titled 'My New Activity 1' and so forth.
You can go ahead and input the new name for the activity
Creating a task can be broken up into four question types: video, photo, text, and document submissions.
To create a video submission task, type in the task or question and then choose the video as your response type.
***All video submissions will have the option of being set from 30 seconds to 30 minutes, based on the activity needs.

To create a photo submission task, type in the task or question and then choose the photo as your response type. All photo submissions will be automatically capped at 5 images.
To create a text submission task, type in the task or question and then choose the text as your response type. All text submissions will be automatically capped at 2,000 characters.
To create a document submission task, type in the task or question and then choose the 'PDF, PPTX, or DOCX' response type. All of these document types will be converted to images for review, upon submission.
Adding Rich Text to Tasks
To add bold, italicize, underline, or lists to your tasks, highlight the section that needs emphasis, and choose the formatting for the text in the bar above.
Once saved, the respondent will be able to see the emphasized changes in the activity.
Adding a New Task
Click the '+ New Task' button to the left of your activity, or below your last programmed task.
Deleting a Task
To delete a task, click the trash can icon next to the task you wish to delete.
If you delete a task after submissions have been received, the collected content will still be available to view on the 'Insights' page to refer back to.
Saving the Activity
Click the 'Save & Next' button in the bottom right-hand corner of the activity editor. Changes will not be saved unless this button is clicked. Any tasks created and left blank will not be saved upon clicking this button.
After the base of the activity has been completed and saved, the next step would be to set the requirements. For more information on how to set the requirements for an activity, click here.
