Collector App won't submit data collected outside of downloaded work area

    When using Collector in the field, the phone/tablet GPS shows your location regardless of whether you are inside the area of map you downloaded or not. On Tuesday I needed to collect something just outside of my downloaded work area, which I underestimated in my initial map download.  The App allowed me to record information and took a point, but when I hit submit, gave me the message "Location Warning- feature is outside your work area" with no option to submit the data.


    Why, if the GPS is working and is displaying my location, and the app allows me to record the data, can I not submit it just because the data is outside the downloaded map area? I think that we should still be able to submit this data to be stored on the device until syncing.
