How do I...?

Create links within Manufacturing Work Instructions that automatically populate the correct TrackVia picture entry

I work for 3D systems. We manufacture 3D printers and use TrackVia in multiple ways, but on of them is to take pictures throughout the assembly process using Android Tablets for accountability and quality purposes. Currently, assembly line workers read paper work instructions, and only use the tablets for TrackVia. We want workers to be able to use the tablets to follow work instructions. Within the instructions, we would like for workers to be able to click a link that would take them to the appropriate TrackVia picture entry form. I'm not sure if this can be done being that with each new printer created, TV might auto-create URLs for each new printer?

    From the description provided, here is the approach I would take. I'm not sure if I am understanding your process well enough.

    I would create a parent table for the Instructions. Your child table (printer model) would have a link to parent field where the appropriate Instruction would be selected. The parent table could have multiple image fields to hold your pictures.
