There are two methods for plotting information on a map:
- For users that configure mobile devices to send tracking data, the tracking map will plot stops and moving arrows on the map.
- In addition, if a form contains a GPS location stamp then doForms is able to plot on the map the location associated with the form.
To view the tracking map click on the Dispatch menu, then select Map.
An enhanced mapping experience is available in Workforce Manager.
The map will either display the last known location for active mobile devices for the current day or you may select a specific mobile user and view all tracks submitted for a particular day.
Menu Buttons: Return to list view, export tracking data or print tracking data.
Map View Options: Show map with tracks only, forms only or both at once. This feature allows users to plot their forms submissions on a map view to see where each form was filled out as well as what information was collected at that location. A GPS location field is required in your form to view the form on a map view.
Filters: Look at stops in a certain city or state or view tracks over a specified speed or with a specified status.
Report: Click on any row and the map will set focus to that row. Only stops are coded with street addresses.
Settings: Tracking settings can be set on each device or remotely. To set settings remotely use the Manage Account Settings option and then click on Mobile device settings.
You are able to set up the system so that you can restrict tracking of mobile devices to working time only so that individuals are not tracked on personal time.
- Be sure that the tracking interval on each mobile device is set to a non-zero interval.
- The tracking function on the mobile device will continue to send GPS coordinates when doForms is running in the background.
