The new Mobile Data Collection app update is up and running. We have upgraded the audio recording, added read-only fields to forms and enabled navigation links on map features. Let’s dive in.
We added a new type of field that is read-only. The field value is set in the Mobile Data Collection Portal and can’t be changed from the MDC app.
Navigate to feature
This feature enables you to navigate directly to a map feature from MDC app via Google maps. Here’s what you need to do:
- 1. Select a map feature
- 2. Click on navigate to feature button (opens Google maps)
- 3. Select direction in Google maps
Before the new update, the MDC app would record audio with a third party voice recording app that was already installed on your smartphone. Now, the audio recorder is built in the MDC app. Resulting in a smooth recording experience and no need for a preinstalled recorder.
Note: the new audio recorder works only on devices that use Android 8.1 version and higher.
