The Geofence add-on allows you to create virtual fences or boundaries that will enabled\disable the ability to clock in from our mobile app. The Geofence feature also comes with an option to allow all punches but indicate when the location is outside the fenced area.
Examples of Geofenced Locations
- The perimeter of your company. (Employees would need to be physically on-site to clock in)
- Multiple Job Sites Out in the Field.
Activate the Geofence add-on as seen below.
Once activated, you will be brought into the settings area.
From here you can choose if a user should be allowed to clock in or out when outside a geofence location. If this is set to true, all punches will be allowed and those punches that are outside a fenced location will be indicated on the Map that they are not within a fenced location. If this option is set to NO, users will not be allowed to clock in or out when outside the geofence location.
