GPS tracking


If you want to control the localization of your employees, which are working out of the office, you can use GPS Location Tracking. It’s a new solution to supervise where your workers are doing their job.

 Please keep in mind, that location is recorded only when the timer is running in the mobile app.

GPS is available in all subscription plans. The administrator's privileges are required to enable the GPS module in the TimeCamp web app.

 

How to enable GPS tracking?

Log in to your TimeCamp account in a web version, click on your avatar n the upper-right corner and select the Account Settings option. Next, go to the Add-ons tab, find the GPS Location Tracking module, and click on the switch button to enable GPS Tracking. After the module is enabled click on its Settings.


The GPS tracking module will be enabled and you can choose the group to which you want to track the location and save settings


How to allow GPS tracking on the mobile?

It’s not enough to just enable the GPS Location Tracking by the Administrator. You have to meet the conditions:

  1. The user should turn on the location services on their mobile. Find the installed TimeCamp app in the mobile settings and allow the location permissions.

If the user disables the GPS Location Tracker option in the mobile app, the location feature won't work.
