Completing a Mission Response While Offline

The GoSpotCheck Offline Mode allows you to Start and Submit Mission Responses when in an area with no WiFi or cellular data connection. This article discusses how to successfully complete a Mission Response while Offline. 

How do you complete a Mission Response while Offline?

No WiFi or cell data connection where you're trying to complete a Mission? Using airplane mode to save your battery life? Use GoSpotCheck's Offline Mode by refreshing your Places when you have a strong WiFi or cell data connection and are within range of the Place where you will be completing the Mission. When you reach the account in Offline Mode, complete the Mission as usual and tap Submit. Once you are back in an area with strong WiFi or cell data connection and/or turn off airplane mode, the Mission will Submit automatically.  

 NOTE: If you are in an area with a weak WiFi signal, your device may attempt to submit the Mission Response up to 10 times. If it is still unsuccessful, the Mission will go into Unable to Upload state. You can manually re-submit the Mission from the My Activity tab of the app when you return to a strong WiFi connection.

If you submit a Mission Response while offline, the timestamp and coordinates are captured upon tapping the submit button (and not later, when connectivity is restored and the Mission Response is uploaded to the server). That means that the Mission duration and your distance from the place will be reported as though you never lost connectivity at all.
