For employees who are not linked with any job sites (meaning their mobile phone number is not associated with any job sites) the system has the ability to automatically update their Time Entry with the closest job site. This is useful when you have a fixed set of job sites and you want to track your employee’s hours according to the job site they are working at.
Here’s how automatic job site matching works:
Any time we see a call from and employee who is not linked to a job site, the system will examine the GPS coordinates that the employee shares with us, and then update their Time Entry accordingly. The system will compare the GPS coordinates against all of the job sites that you have configured in the system, and update the employee’s Time Entry with the job site that is the closest match. This way, you can track your employee’s hours by the job site they are working at, yet they will not have to choose from a list of all possible job sites. In fact, they won’t have to make any choice at all. We do the matching automatically as soon as we receive their GPS information.
