      I really like how versatile the attach file option in a essay question is.  For example, I use it to have students upload their work.  But to do this, they need to take a picture, upload it to google drive, and then from there, using a laptop, they can upload the image.  I find this is quite clunky and slows students down for 10 minutes each day.

      Recently the moodle mobile app has had major improvements and I am trying to have students skip many of those steps to save time  and have students use the app to take pictures directly and submit then in an attach file area.  This works really well for drop box submissions, but in quiz essay questions with the attach file option available, the functionality of this is not supported by the app. 


      Currently - Drop box's attach file area

      I can open the moodle mobile app via my phone and go into a drop box.  In there I can attach a file and since I am using my phone I can take a picture of work done on paper.  This method directly uploads the submission to the drop box without using roundabout methods.

      Improvement Needed - Quiz Essay Question's attach file area

      Right now, when using the app, I can go into a quiz and input answers but when I go to a essay question (made using Moodle 3.3) that has a attach file area enabled, the mobile app says "this functionality is not supported"  It would be amazing to have the essay question's attach file area have the same functionality in the mobile app as a drop box does.

      Can this be done to improve the capabilities of the essay question's attach file area?
