When using the App Designer, you can optionally control whether the records within your app have location data captured along with the form data. This is useful if the data you’re collecting is indoors, or otherwise doesn’t need to have GPS location information collected with it. These settings are available in the sidebar of the App Designer page.
When collecting location data is enabled for an app, you can also make location data required. This will prevent the user from saving the data if the device cannot determine its current location, and require the user to manually set the location for each new record.
When location is enabled, the records will have latitude and longitude columns in the data table views.
When Advanced Geometry is enabled, the records will have a geometry field displayed in the metadata. Geometry is stored in GeoJSON format and some basic information about the record's geometry is displayed.
