Can I choose whether GPS activation is optional or required?

Last Updated: Sep 06, 2018 10:02PM PDT
Yes, you can make the GPS Tracking Mandatory or Optional for Clock-In/Out and Check-In/Out.

If GPS tracking is required, Salesforce Administrator at your Org must check the Check box "Location Tracking" in the Config page.

Location tracking can be enabled for 
  • Clock-In - Clock-Out
  • Check-In - Check-Out
Once the GPS tracking is enabled in Salesforce and if the GPS button is enabled on your Phone, then it will automatically save the location for Clock-In/Out and Check-In/Out.

If the GPS button is enabled on config page and not on the Mobile, then there is pop up on Start Job/Travel on the phone which says you should turn on GPS to track location with Cancel and OK button.
  • Cancel: When the Cancel button is selected, the app will not track the location
  • OK: If you choose OK, then the app automatically enables GPS button on the Phone and the Location is tracked for Clock-In/Out and Check-In/Out


Once the location is tracked the location details are available under TT Details as in the below screenshot
