How to stop the Point Shape field from being blank

I am having an issue where if someone does not allow the Survey123 app to see location the geopoint is blank.  This means it can not show on any map going forward.  So I can never "see" it anywhere.  It also means it is not visible to Data Drive Pages for some reason and ArcMap complains that shape can not be null.  I know of no way to edit the point location since I can never see it.  Also when I try to edit it in ArcMap Create local copy will never check it out.

 

Is there a way to set a default location so at least this will not happen again?  How is everyone dealing with this issue?

 

I did find in testing that if location is turned off the map is blank.  When you open it you must hit Home then move the map.  This is confusing users.

 

Thanks
