Click the "Start Upload" button and the uploaded files should be added to the File Manager. You may also upload files from the many WYSIWYG editors in Kinesis Survey. Files uploaded via the WYSIWYG are visible in both the File Manager and the HTML editor.

ViewProtect® in File Manager

To apply translucent view protection (watermark) to your images, you must first enable ViewProtect® in your project's Survey Properties. Once enabled, the "ViewProtect® PNG files" option will be available in File Manager. PNG files uploaded will then tagged with a ViewProtect® ID. This ID can be used to insert images within the Survey Editor as though it were datapoint content being piped. For example, an image assigned ViewProtect® ID 12 would be available in your survey by using ~VP12~.
