Viewing in the Activity Feed
Once you have logged your GPS location, it will show in the activity feed for all that have been added to the job.
Your precise location will be shown using Google Maps, as well as the time and the coordinates.
To view the location in Google Maps, click on “View Larger Map”.
When a user logs their location on a job, it’s automatically added as an entry on the Timesheets feature.
Your exact sign on time will be entered as a note on the entry underneath the job title.
