There are two ways to invite an individual, using Axon Capture and using Evidence.com. Evidence.com is used to manually triage and accept or decline evidence submissions, if required by your agency.
To prevent spam, each private link can only be used for one submission. Each submission is limited to a maximum of 16 files with a maximum size of 2 GB per file and a total maximum size of 10 GB. The private link for submissions expires after 3 days.
Using Axon Capture to Invite an Individual
Note: Users must be allowed to send Axon Citizen invitations in Evidence.com and have Axon Capture for Android version 3.6 or later or Axon Capture for iOS version 3.7 or later to send an Axon Citizen invitation.
