Tip: The default radius is set to about 100 meters (recommended) if the radius is small the chances or missing check-in's (or having multiples) become higher.
Uploading Job-sites (bulk):
Please download the job-site .csv template from here. You can use this template to upload your customer job sites into the system. In this template you will notice 3 columns, 'name' 'address' and siteID (optional). You will need to add customer sites to this template.
Here is how:
Column1: Under the column 'name' enter the name of the customer site (example) 'Abaqus office'
Column2: Under the 'address' input the address starting from the line 1 including the zip code. example: 530 University Avenue Palo Alto, CA 94301 USA
Column3: 'siteID' this is an (optional field) you can input any additional identification for the site
Column4: 'radius' (optional field) is the radius of the job-site zone, you can input the value is 'feet' if you leave this to be 'blank' it will default to 328 feet (100 meters). Generally, if the radius is too small, the chances are missing the site is greater
Column5: 'groupID' (optional field) - You can restrict automatic 'clock in/ clock out' from this job-site to only a few phones (grouped) assigned to this work site by adding their 'group ID', (learn how to create groups)
