Use HTTPS – Enable\Disables use of HTTPS for this device.

Regarding syncing results, there are 2 ways in which you enable results syncing to the servers: 

 

  1. You set the device to auto-sync results. This is done via Settings->Options and setting the Result Syncing check box. This will ensure that every time results are created (Completed) by a surveyor and connection exists the results on the device will be uploaded to the server. Please note that only results that were created by that logged in user will be synced. 




 

  1. Manually selecting (after logging in to SurveyToGo on the device) Settings->Sync Results. Please note that only results that were created by that logged in user will be synced.

     



The device auto-syncs a batch of results every 30 minutes (default), the interval and the amount of results in a batch can be changed. Please consult Dooblo support before changing the number of results in a batch.

Location Services

 


Testing the GPS in the app’s options:

If the GPS is available & capturing you would see the following:


If not, it would write that it is not available.

The GPS Options

Enable\Disable GPS Capturing.


Enables usage of only the hardware GPS, preventing other GPS apps to interfere. Location information can be obtained not only using a GPS but also from cellular and Wi-Fi networks to determine your approximate location. To ensure your location is always determined in the same manner and in the most accurate way make sure this option is checked.


Will make the GPS sample constantly – important for Geo-Fencing.


Capture interviewer’s position in the GPS data.


Lets you determine the sampling frequency.



Disables usage of old GPS capturing in case of lack in functionality in the GPS.


Set the ‘lifetime’ of old GPS data, in case that your result haven’t collected GPS data due to a problem with the GPS it would turn to an old GPS reading, this would decide how long would old GPS readings last.


Cheking GPS functionality within the survey

You can check the following function, wherever you want in your survey:
GetGPSLocation().Latitude != “”

If it returns ‘true’ it means there is a Latitude, which means GPS is working.
If this returns ‘false’ it means that the Latitude returned is empty, which means GPS is not working.
