Geolocation

Use

The Geolocation control is used to display the exact location of the end user in latitude and longitude, in mobile devices.

 

Considerations

Used and intended for mobiles devices.

GPS services in the mobile device must be enabled. Bizagi will prompt requesting access to your location.

The control will ALWAYS be not editable.

If access to location is not allowed, the control will display an error. If the control is mandatory, the case will not be able to continue. If the control is not mandatory the location will remain empty.

In desktop the control may or may not display according to the browser and its properties.

 

Related to attribute types

Geolocation is related to string-type attributes. We recommend using a length of 50.

 

Properties

DESCRIPTION

Allow update

When a location has been selected, the allow update property allows updating the data.

If allow update is not enabled then the data obtained will be saved and cannot be changed.

 

Example

1. Create a string-type attribute.

 

2. Drag and drop the attribute to the desired form and right click on it.

Convert to Geolocation.
