  2. Choose Settings.
  3. Set the type of internet connection, depending on the task type:
    Field tasks

    You can complete field tasks without a continuous internet connection. You only need the internet to choose and reserve tasks and send responses.

    • Wi-Fi only — Turn on Submit over Wi-Fi only.

      This option saves cellular data. Your responses are stored on your device when you don't have Wi-Fi access, and are submitted as soon as Wi-Fi is available.
      Note. You need to make sure your responses are submitted before the task time expires.
    • Wi-Fi or mobile network — Turn off Submit over Wi-Fi only.

      This option means you can send responses immediately after you complete tasks, as soon as you are connected to the internet.

    Non-field tasks

    Non-field tasks require a constant internet connection.

    • Wi-Fi only — Turn on Submit over Wi-Fi only.

    • Wi-Fi or mobile network — Turn off Submit over Wi-Fi only.

Camera

Many tasks require you to photograph something (for example, a store's sign). All photos must contain the location information. Otherwise, the requester will reject your response. To save your location in photos:
  1. Open the Camera app on your device.
  2. Go to settings by tapping .
  3. Turn on the GPS location info option.
    Note. Allow access to your location as the system prompts you to.

If photos in responses are sent too slowly, choose a lower resolution in the camera settings, but not less than 3 pixels.

Gallery

In some field tasks, you need to attach several photos at once (for example, the front of a building and the sign). If Gallery doesn't support choosing multiple photos, install the Google Photos app.
