Background Audio Recording

To ensure even better authenticity of the collected data, GoSurvey now comes with Background Audio Recording feature.

What does this feature do?

Businesses often face situations where occasionally wrong or dummy data collected by the surveyors leads to inaccurate results, hence causing loss to the business.

To cope up with this situation, GoSurvey now includes Background Audio Recording which when enabled will record audio in the background from the start of the survey till the end without letting the user/surveyor know about it.
Hence, it will be easy for you to know whether the collected data is authentic or not.
