Understanding Missions

Missions Illustration

What is a Mission?

Missions are the main event of GoSpotCheck. Often called surveys or audits, a mission is a set of tasks for a group of users and places. As an administrator, you set missions up using the web dashboard; your users complete missions using the mobile app.

Viewing Missions

By default, when you log in to GoSpotCheck, you’ll see an overview of your organization’s active or started missions. To drill down into a specific mission, click Missions from the Navigation Bar. 

From the Missions page, you have a number of ways to view your data. Across the top of the page, you can choose which status you want to view. These are described below. By default, the Started missions appear.

Mission Statuses

Across the top of the page, you can filter which missions appear by status.


Missions that are currently available on mobile devices.


Missions that are scheduled to be launched automatically at a future time.


Missions that have not yet been scheduled or started; Draft Missions are fully editable.


Missions which were active, but an administrator has stopped.

Archived Typically, administrators archive missions to move them out of the stopped area. Once a mission has been archived, you have to unarchive it to view any of the data. Unarchived missions move back into stopped status.

To learn more about mission statuses, see Managing Missions.

Searching Missions

Just above the list of missions, is a search box where you can search by name. You don’t need the whole name; just type part of it in the search box and press enter. Note: you may need to select a different status to find the mission you want.


Sort any of the list views in GoSpotCheck by clicking on the header of the column you’d like to sort by.

View more per page

To view more results per page, choose a different number from the dropdown at the top right.
