Time Clock Location Tracking

RTasks Clock In/Out feature has the ability to track a users location using GPS.  In order to have this feature work, a user must have location services turned on for the device they are using .  This document will explain how the feature works when clocking in.

Resetting Location Services:

  • If location tracking is turned on and you "block" location tracking, you will not be able to clock into RTasks.
