Geolocation in Time Tracking

Learn all about the Geolocation tool in time tracking.

How do I know if my employees are clocking in/out once they have entered/left the office? Will they do it from their home couch? Can I be sure what they are doing when they start/end their working day? All these doubts are cleared up with the Geolocation feature. 

How can I activate it? 

  1. Head to Apps
  2. Select Time Tracking 
  3. Go to Settings
  4. Select the Time Tracking Policy of your interest 
  5. Go to Policy Settings 
  6. Activate Use geolocation

🔺 You cannot activate the Geolocation and QR code /Entrance app in the same Time Tracking policy. 

Use Geolocation

Once you activate it, when an employee clock in through the app, Factorial will save the coordinates from which the employee performed the action of sliding the button to clock in or out, so you as an administrator will have the power to consult it through the Time Tracking Report.

Remember 💡: The employees must accept the Geolocation option the first time, so Factorial allows them to register the clock-in coordinates. 




Attention ⚠️: The moment you enable the geolocation, the clock-in button on the web will disappear, as the Geolocation system is not available for the web.
