    Thanks for sharing this idea. Making a GPS “Blast” feature that could conservatively refresh all the locations of employees is something that our customers have begun asking for. Keep sending in those votes so that we know when exactly to build this for you.

    I love the new GPS trak feature that shows the route and pings. I think you guys are certainly moving toward more secured/accurate tracking. Having said that, It would be most beneficial to have an address at each ping. I have several employees that are disabling thier data or location etc. And also swear up and down they didn't leave a jobsite when indeed they have. When I approach them I don't really have any information to arm myself with to be able to say...well your last ping shows you at this address at this time, which is x amount of minutes or hours away from the jobsite. Instead I have to fish and hope they give the info. But most times theyll say well doesnt the tracker show you. Which in turn can make the employer look like they don't know what's going on and gives the employee a permission slip of sorts to test the waters as far as how accurate time tracking methods are. Our policy does require GPS tracking, but in order to dock those times that we cannot account for, it would be much more beneficial to be able to back up of all documentations with accurate/visible information etc. . Please consider this in upcoming changes to current features. I'd even be willing to pay a little more if that's what it takes. Thank you kindly and keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the idea, Bruno. We’ll definitely consider this. Up until now, preventing an employee from clocking in because of their location is a little squirrelly for both parties. So we have a created a conservative in-between.

    Currently, you can set up Out of Bounds alerts in ClockShark that will alert you if an employee is clocking in/out from outside the GPS Fence. Let me share an article on how to set that up: http://help.clockshark.com/knowledgebase/articles/1135408-using-gps-fence-geofencing

    Out of Bounds alerts will make you aware anytime an employee clocks time when they’re not on the jobsite. We’ll keep our eyes on this idea’s feedback to see if that setting needs to be more restrictive. Keep on voting, folks.

    the geo fence option doesn't really help to much, I really think we need another option to either approve or deny clock ins. my employees are taking advantage of this and its starting to become an issue, if i set a schedule at 7am to 3pm I don't want to see them clocking in at 6am. yes I can adjust this myself but part of the reason I came to clockshark was to lessen the need for correcting these things. please give it some thought. thank you
