Properties of GPS:

1. Label

You can change the name of the GPS using a label. It is ‘Location’ by default.

On the right panel, go to the label section and you can type the required text that you want. The same name will appear on the form.

2. Required

You can use this property to make ‘GPS’ mandatory to be filled by the user.

Some fields in your form might be mandatory, while some might not be.

For example, you can make it mandatory for your field executive to add location every time a new form is being filled out.  

All you have to do is set the ‘Required’ field to ‘Yes’ to make it mandatory field.

3. Unique Identifier

Every field will have a unique identifier. No two unique identifiers for fields will be the same.

Please note that ‘Unique Identifier’ property is just for reference purpose only. The user need not have to do anything to this property, it can be referred when there are fields created with the same names.

When you create two fields with the same names, it might get confusing when you are setting a condition and you wouldn’t know which field is which.

For example,

If you have created a field ‘address’ - and set a visibility condition to it saying the ‘address’ field will be only visible if you have entered the ‘Phone number.’

But if there are two fields that say ‘Phone Number’ - it will be difficult to set a visibility condition since both the fields have the same name.

Both of these fields ‘Phone Number’ will have different unique identifiers. You can check the unique identifier and then set the condition accordingly.

4. Validity Conditions

Validity Condition in the property for the ‘GPS / Location’ is used to specify a condition.

If you set any validity condition, it implies that the ‘GPS / Location’ will only be valid if it satisfies the condition that you have set.

It can be set by specifying the condition - you can do that by clicking ‘condition not specified.’

For example,

You might create a ‘GPS / Location’ which will be only valid if the user enters ‘Yes’ in the earlier field ‘Is the Form Filled on Field?’

Otherwise, it would be invalid and show an error message.

Validations can help you control the type of input during the filling of a form by the user.

You can also customize an error message that you want to display by typing the message in ‘Validity Error Message.’ This message will be displayed when the validity condition does not match with the given input.

5. Capture Type

For GPS, you can find ‘Capture Type’ property on the right panel. This property has three types:

a. Manual

If you set ‘manual,’ then while filling up the mobile form, the user will be able to pick a location on the map displayed.

b. On Tap

If you set ‘On Tap,’ then while filling up the mobile form, the user can just tap to fetch the real-time location through the mobile device.

c. On Submit

If you set ‘On Submit,’ then the location will be fetched only when the form has been submitted. Therefore, a user might fill the form at one place, whereas, he might submit the form from another place. The location from where the form is submitted will be captured.
