Just check in at presto while you are there to unlock the survey, then take your photos, etc and go home to do it on a laptop, or a near dunkin donuts or starbucks, or mcd if it is a time issue (I actually do the report on the parking lot, no need to even go inside, the signal is usually quite strong). That's what I do for all type of presto shops, can not waste hours for the report to load or the non stop crashes.@emm2131 wrote:
I have spent over 4 hours trying to work it out.
Is anyone else having this problem with surveys that will not load on Presto?
I think that I may have figured out the problem. I believe that the app keeps the last location you were at before you started taking pictures so the app thinks that you are at the location 2 miles down the road. So, what I did today which seemed to work, is to check in to get the survey to open, start doing the assignment / take pictures, then recheck in. I did that and it worked most of the time. The other times I checked in just before I submitted it, while I was in the store after dropping off my leave behind, and it stated that I was close enough. The only other one that didn't work (of 15 or so so far, is a location that was an issue on both the Dark and the 2D Scanner assignments so I just submitted a "location issue" and moved on. I wouldn't worry too much about the check-in thing though. I did a bunch of other types of assignments on Presto for this Client and it never seemed to impact payment.@off2seeoz2000 wrote:
That’s part of the problem.. I spend a lot of time just trying to check in with the app and I can’t. It is so frustrating. Any suggestions?
Thank you for response. I am quite certain it is not a wi-Fi reception problem. Happened at home too.
I did one yesterday...my first. It took me 40 minutes for a well maintained station with 8 pumps. It used to take me about 20-30 minutes..max. I don't like doing them on the app as I find it hard to hold the phone and have to remove my glasses to focus on the pictures. (nearsighted) Too much lag in between questions and photos. Although there was no report to do once I finished, I still prefer the old way.
Those of you who finish at home, are you using the app or doing it on the computer. If so, how do you get the photos uploaded? Do you just take the photos on your phone and then do the report at home on your phone? I'm afraid I would screw it up if I tried to do it after I left the site.
How much do these things pay?? This seems like a real pain in the tuchus!
