General Questions about Geo-Location and Geo-Fencing
What is Geo-Location?
Answer: Geo-location refers to the identification or estimation of the real-world geographic location of an object or person. In the context of the ClockIt time clock app, this feature is used to track the location of employees when they clock in and out.
What is Geo-Fencing?
Answer: Geo-fencing is a feature that uses the GPS or RFID technology to create a virtual geographic boundary, enabling software to trigger a response when a mobile device enters or leaves a particular area. In our ClockIt app, this could be used to ensure that employees are only clocking in or out when they are within the workplace or a specified work area.
Using Geo-Location and Geo-Fencing with ClockIt
How does ClockIt use Geo-Location?
Anser: ClockIt uses geo-location to provide more accurate attendance tracking. When employees clock in or out using the app, their location is recorded. This helps ensure that employees are actually at work when they say they are, increasing the overall accuracy and integrity of your attendance data.
Can I set up a Geo-Fence with ClockIt?
Answer: Yes, ClockIt allows you to set up a geo-fence around your workplace or any other specified work location. This means you can set a virtual boundary and when employees enter or leave this boundary, they can clock in or out. If an employee tries to clock in or out outside of this boundary, the app will not allow it.
Is my location tracked all the time by ClockIt?
Answer: No, ClockIt respects your privacy. Your location is only recorded at the moment when you clock in or out. We do not track your location continuously throughout the day.
