Could you please help me figure out what is the best way to capture location when the form is first created and then submitted?
For myself I chose the second approach, but it doesn't work as expected. Please check out my xslx form attached.
Solved! Go to Solution.
No just the date and time.
Surveys are point feature classes so they can only have one GPS location.
as James said - store a lat/long in a text field
Create a repeat - which creates another Feature class - and have a start and end in the repeat. It will not be automatic however. For me I have text that says - move to the start of the line, then later in my form I have text saying move to the end of the line.
Hope that helps.
There is not a method to capture both starting location and ending location automatically. In your form, both geopoint questions are set to readonly, which means that they will both only get the starting location. The pulldata() function used to extract x/y is incorrect - you only need "x" and "y" as the parameter name (this is not a reverse geocode task - reverse geocode specifically deal with the translation from a location to a text location like a street address).
Hi James. Seeing as you can capture geopoints in repeats now, is there anyway I can set it that as soon as you select a repeat, it will automatically capture your XY location without having to open up the map and drop a pin? When I have a geopoint question in my repeat, it is great because it saves it in the metadata, I just didn't want to have my users actually have to open up the map to drop a pin.
