What Is Enforce GPS?

Manage mobile teams with real-time location and time tracking

 Written by Andrea Montenegro

When you activate the Enforce GPS feature in Hourly, your employees must turn on Location Services on their iPhone or Android to clock in and out for work.

The employee's location is recorded each time they clock in and out, increasing timecard accuracy and requiring fewer edits.

Users must have Manager or Supervisor roles to update the following settings:

  • Select Settings from the menu
  • Select GPS Settings
  • Toggle Enforce GPS to Active or Inactive
