Hello,
the tablets we want to use for mobile data collection run on windows which is why we are using the desktop version of Collect. IOs it possible to use the device's internal GPS to automatically fill in the current location into the form or does that only work for the mobile app version?
Thanks!

Dear user,
Please update Collect to the latest version (4.0.90); you will have the possibility to get the current location from the browser.
Please also ensure to give the permissions to access the location from Collect in your browser, otherwise you will receive an error message.
Many thanks,
Open Foris Team
