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, as well as map the route they took while they were checked into an event.

Time To Pet supports full GPS Route Tracking, which allows a company to capture the entire route a staff member took during the visit. GPS Route Tracking is a service-by-service feature, which means that each service has a setting to either enable or disable it from being tracked. For example, 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 of where a staff member checks in and check out of visits) can be enabled in the Mobile App Configuration Settings section (Note: Time Tracking must also be enabled to use GPS Tracking). You also have the option to share this data with your client or not.

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 Tracking" field:

When enabled, Time To Pet will track the full GPS Route your staff member took when checked in to the visit.
