Enabling GPS Tracking
Time To Pet supports both time tracking and GPS tracking through our Mobile Apps. When GPS is enabled, Time To Pet can capture the GPS coordinates of where your staff member checks in and checks out of their visits. Time To Pet also supports GPS Route Tracking on a service by service basis. GPS Route Tracking allows a company to capture the entire route a staff member took during the visit. GPS Route Tracking is a service by service feature as it may make sense to enable this for a "Dog Walking" service but it probably does not make sense to enable Route Tracking for "Overnight Pet Sitting".
When GPS tracking is enabled, the GPS map gets published to the service's details upon the completion of the event. There are a number of places you can view this GPS map in Time To Pet. See our help article on Viewing Time Tracking And GPS Data for more information.
Enabling Standard GPS Tracking (Check In/Check Out Coordinates)
Standard GPS tracking (capturing GPS data when a staff checks in and check out of visits) can be enabled in the Mobile App Configuration Settings section. (Note that Time Tracking must also be enabled to use GPS Tracking.) You can also choose to optionally share this data with your client.
The map can be shown to clients along with the visit report if "Show Clients GPS Tracking" is set to "Yes".
Enabling GPS Route Tracking For A Service
Full GPS Route Tracking is a service by service feature. This means that each service has a setting to either enable or disable it from being tracked. In the dashboard's Services List, you can set this through the service's "Edit" button and select the option you want for the "GPS Route Checking" field:
When enabled, Time To Pet will track the full GPS Route your staff member took when checked in to the visit.
