Guide - locations

Locations

Locations can be created to define different areas of work within the business. A location might be a work site, department, shop, factory or combinations of each.




Navigate


Menu > Settings > General > Locations




Why create a location?


Rosters

Locations are used to define areas of your business, if making rosters a location must be created for each area of the business that a roster will be made for, this allows breaking down the business as required.

Example Kitchen and Bar might be two locations set.


Clocking hours

Locations can be used to define a graphical location of a business premises or work site,

this can be used to allow employees to clock their worked hours within this area.

When clocking in from a GPS enabled device like a smart phone the employee can clock in once they are inside the designated area.


Job tracking

A location can be assigned a job, if an employee clocks on at a location the job assigned to that location will be attached to that timesheet entry.

This allows the business to track how many hours have been worked at what locations.
