    Set up Geofence and Site Access

      Article Summary

      The Site Access screen shows the site location on a map. Project managers can set up a geofence around the site and define the site access.  

      • The geofence defines the boundary within which your crew members should be during their working hours.
      • The digital timecard records accept the in-time and the other time card entries made by the crew members only if they are within the geofence.
      • If a worker is away from the geofence for more than a specified period, he/she will be clocked out. They have to resume the clock once they re-enter the geofence.
      • The site access defines the entry/egress points of the site for crew/equipment entry, material deliveries, etc. 
      • The plus code and the site coordinates are created for the site based on the site access location.
