As default tracking is disabled for point layers. We had number of requests from users to include such option and this feature can now be enabled if necessary.
If you need that specific feature please go to miscellaneous settings and scroll down to the tracking section and switch on tracking for points layer option:
Now when you get back to the map with the active point layer – you will see the ‘R’ button available for the point layer as well.
When you press the ‘R’ button standard ‘Add Point’ attributes screen will be displayed, however when you press ‘Save’ – the tracking service will be started and subsequent points will be added automatically deriving the attributes from the first point.
The Track recording for the point layer is not available when “Distance & Bearing” method for adding points is enabled.
Points will be recorded automatically as long as the layer is active and you do not stop the tracking or switch active layers.
