Hi,

My users have reported that the Survey123 app keep showing the following error message when they try to complete a survey with no GPS signal on their Android devices:

Basicly, what it says in english is : "No position received"

 

The actual position of the user is not important for our Survey (The user select a location ID). So is there anyway to prevent Survey123 from trying to find the device position?

Will autopopulating the geometry field keep the app from searching for a location?

 

Thank you for your help.

 

EDIT: I can confirm the same behavior appear on Survey123 version 3.1.113 on Windows 7. The message appear everywhere in the app. I now see that I can disable it in the App parameters.

Still, is there anyway to disable it completly? I would prefer not to collect personal information about the location of my users when they send me data.
