Is the “start-geopoint” feature supported right now for Kobotoolbox?

I am curious about the current status of the problem in this title. Is the “start-geopoint” feature supported right now for Kobotoolbox? (I think it’s not.)

Update the formpack requirement to include support for pyxform 1.5.1 by jnm · Pull Request #3242 · kobotoolbox/kpi · GitHub What did the development on this link means, I couldn’t understand.

I get the error when I try to deploy a form to Kobo with a start-geopoint feature. >>> "Your Form Cannot Be Deployed Because it Contains Errors:

Unknown Question Type ‘Start-Geopoint’. "Error fault.

Edit: If this feature has not been released, is there an estimated date for release?

Best regards,
Nejad

Welcome to the community, @nejad! Please be informed that this metadata question type is supported with KoboToolbox. FYI, you could test this sample XLSForm:

start-geopoint.xlsx (9.6 KB)

However, please be informed that you will need to activate your GPS while collecting data. Else the metadata question type may not work as expected.

I’m posting this here just in case it’s not a known issue:

Forms with this field (start-geopoint) cannot be opened in the form editor. The page breaks and looks like this:
