You may need to record location data on a mobile device without requiring your users to see the field. You can do this by making an adjustment to the field in the Legacy Builder. 

Configuring Hidden GPS

  1. Add a GPS field and select it to open Field Settings in the left panel. Or select an existing GPS field.
  2. Under the field type dropdown, check the checkbox next to Hidden.AFB_Field_Settings_HIdden_GPS.png
  3. Save and publish your form.

The hidden GPS field will respect any specifications set in the field settings, including accuracy and timeout. This field will not be required, in case of a timeout when the location will not be captured.
