Make GPS ping time adjustable

Make GPS ping time adjustable between 5 minutes and 30 minutes in 5 minute increments per employee. That would allow for tighter control on troublesome employees and looser control on good employees.

Hi Glen,

This is a really great suggestion! Currently, ClockShark updates an employee’s location at 15 minute intervals. This is a conservative interval that ensures that employee cell batteries aren’t taxed by using their GPS.

Thanks for explaining why a different interval would be so helpful to your company. As your idea catches steam here on our voting page, we’ll look into adding that to ClockShark. :)

    Allow for an administrator to manually ping the GPS location of individual employees. Currently we have to use other apps to do this and it would be nice if it was all within ClockShark. This is because GPS intervals are not always every 15 minutes. We have times that they are about once an hour.

    This is a very good idea to show location between jobs for time schedules to inform customers if a employee is going to be late on arrival. This show good Public Relations with customers.
