Option to have Location Tracking on when App is in background

    It would be extremely useful to our staff if the location tracking in collector could record locations while the app is in the background. I realize per the online documentation that the idea is to preserve battery by only allowing it to record when the app is active, but it would be nice to have the option (like in many other app settings) and choose whether we'd like it in the background or active.


    Our field staff are often navigating extremely steep, unstable, and/or back-woods terrain and it is impractical for them to have the app actively open on the device when they need to be focusing on traversing safely.


    Thanks for your consideration!
