GPS related query

Hi All,

When using the Auto GPS capture in CommCare on an android device, you
receive a prompt to switch on your Location Access if it is disabled
(attached is an image of the prompt). Is there a way to find out if that
prompt appeared when opening a form and what the user selected (cancel/
change settings)?

Kind regards,
Ameera

Hi Ameera,

I don’t believe we store that information (whether the location services
were on or off for the phone). Its certainly something we could try store
in the future (i’d recommend creating a Uservoice
http://dimagi.uservoice.com/ idea for it).

For now, I think the only information you have about location is whether we
captured it or not. That might be a good indicator of whether Location
Services were on or off, if you have a good GPS connection in your area.
