Hey everyone thanks for sharing your feedback and concerns.
We are always working to improve the GPS functionality and close any holes that are being exploited. This is not something that is that easy to do with the way the devices work and the limitations imposed by the Android and iOS operating systems. We do expect that we will keep making improvements and are working on that always. There is also a degree of employee education involved and at times when employees are doing the wrong thing they will need to be talked to. Please feel free to share any additional concerns and we will keep working to deliver the best GPS experience possible.

Hey Chad, thanks for sharing your feedback with us! This is absolutely possible with our Who’s Working Now page. Here you can see a huge map of everyone’s locations and you’ll see pop ups whenever someone clocks in, goes on lunch, add an attachment, clocks out, etc.
Then when they clock out for the day, all their time is available to be reviewed on the timesheets!
If you have any questions contact our support team via chat on the website, email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or phone (800-828-0689).

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.

Should not be able to clock in/out if not in the GPS fence.
