When using favorite answers, i noticed that it can copy in the old location. This is problematic as it can result in multiple records with the same geometry. If the GPS has acquired a lock before pasting in the favorite answers then it doesn't copy in your old location. However, if the GPS is still trying to find a lock as you paste in your favorite answers then it enters in the old location. Is there anyway to avoid this issue? Usually pasting in your favorite answers is the first step folks take which if the device hasn't acquired a signal will be bad.

Hi Nikholai,

That does present an issue when utilizing 'favorite answers'.  We do have an open issue regarding the ability to base favorite answers on a subset of questions from the form as opposed to all answers.  I will add your comments to the request to allow for the subset, noting that this would be particularly useful in this case.

In the meantime, please advise those utilizing favorites to ensure the geopoint question has been set, prior to pasting in the favorite answers.

Thank you for the feedback,

Brandon
