Geofence Time Tracking Guide


For geofence time tracking, enter a street address for each Customer in your account to map it and customize the geofence area. When location is captured for the employee action (Punch in, Punch out, Check Point), Timesheet Mobile will compare the location of the Punch with geofence area for the customer or job site. On the Logsheet Page, a colored globe icon indicates if the employee was at the site or distance away from the site. Also, an email alert will be sent to manager notifying them of the geofence violation.

In the example employee log events above, Employee #12 (Anthony Jones) punched out at 9:31 am while approximately .3 miles from the configured customer site.  The geofence time tracking information is displayed in real-time on the Logsheet page when the event occurs and can be viewed on the map by clicking in the Location Type/Accept column and the map in the Detail View form.

In this geofence time tracking example, the employee punched out at 12:28 pm.  As can be seen on the Logsheet page, this punch out was performed while within the defined radius of the customer or job site.

Geofence time tracking provides company administrators with a real-time and easy to use visibility into their employee action when starting and stopping the clock or at periodic points throughout the day using Check Point.  The feature works with both the smartphone app and IVR (dial-up non-smartphone) users who have registered their supported non-smartphones (see a list of supported wireless providers at www.timesheetmobile.com).
