IMPORTANT: To use this feature, you have to make sure that you have enabled location tracking for your staff and that they have optimized their device for location tracking.

First, this feature has to be enabled per job, so you can choose which open jobs can be automatically started or ended. To do this, perform the following actions:

Click on > Home > Jobs Hours

Click on > Jobs List

Click on > Job Name

On the job info screen, make sure you have these settings:

  1. Address: Make sure your job has an address saved. To add or edit an address, click on 'edit'.

  2. Allow Auto Clock-In/Out via Geofencing: Enabled

  3. Status: Open

This is all that’s required from your end as an admin.

How it works:

This feature is automatically enabled once your staff has clocked-in from their device, and turns off when they clock out. For best results, the staff's device should be online as much as possible, and that the SINC app is open or in the background. 

A job shift is automatically started when your staff enters is at most 200 meters near the job site, and the job shift is automatically ended when your staff leaves the 200-meter area surrounding the job site.

Every time the staff's job shift is started or ended via this feature, a notification will appear on the staff's device, like the image below. Make sure your staff has also allowed notifications for the SINC app for these to show.
