Enabling GPS / Location Services

Location Services allows location-based apps such as to determine your approximate location.  If location services are enabled on the mobile application, your employees can clock in and out and add activities, etc. and have their location recorded at the time of the event.  Please see  the instructions below on how to enable GPS / Location Services for both iOS and Android operating systems.



To enable Location  Services go to  Settings > Privacy > Location Services. You can turn Location Services on either during the Setup Assistant process or later through the Location Services setting. You can turn it off if you don't want to use this feature or to conserve battery life. You can individually control which apps and system services have access to Location Services data.

When opening the app for the first time on your mobile device you will be prompted  to  either "Allow" or " Don't Allow" the app to access location data while using the app. We highly recommend that all users Select the "Allow" option.

If you need to make changes you can  go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services.  This will show you all of the apps / system services that currently have location services enabled.  If you wish to make changes to the app's location settings select the '>' to the right of the page to view the location settings for that specific app.


Once in the app detail screen you will see all of the available options.  If you do not wish to share location data select the 'Never' option.



There are several option to enable Location services on your android device.  The fastest way is to swipe down from the top of the screen to access your notifications panel.  This should also reveal your quick settings menu. If your operating system is Android 5.0 or later once the notification panel is revealed swipe down again using a single finger to reveal the quick settings menu. When the icon is illuminated the service is on.
