Distance Travelled Report

Note: The Distance Travelled Connector has been deprecated and replaced by the Distance Travelled Report documented here.

1. Feature Overview

Track and monitor the distance travelled (in kilometres or miles) by your field sales users on any particular day. The distance travelled is calculated based on the check-in/check-out activities, and location coordinates identified by the LeadSquared Mobile App. Admins and Sales Managers can also apply filters on the report and export data.


2. Prerequisites

  • You must have the LeadSquared Mobile app installed on your device, and location permission access must be enabled. To know more, please refer to Location Tracking on LeadSquared Mobile.
  • Enable Location Insights on your account. To do so, contact your account manager or write to us at support@leadsquared.com.
  •  Admins must enable location tracking permissions for their users. To do so, navigate to Settings>Mobile App>Permissions. Under Location Tracking, enable all the permissions.
  •  Enable user check-in in your account for location tracking and distance calculation. To do so, navigate to Settings>Users and Permissions>User Check-in and enable the Show check-in widget to web users setting.
  •  All mobile users must Check-In/Check-Out daily for the system to effectively track their location and calculate the distance travelled during the day. Distance calculation will not be initiated for the day if the mobile user has not checked in.
  • To get data with highest location accuracy, refer to Measures to Ensure Higher Distance Computation Accuracy in Mobile App.

4. Settings

To view the settings, on the bottom left corner of the page, click mobile settings icon. On this page, you can configure the following advanced settings –

  • Google Maps Platform API Key – By default, the distance travelled by users is calculated using LeadSquared’s Proprietary Distance Computation Algorithm. To use your Google Maps Platform API Key for Distance Calculation, enter the key here. Once you configure this setting, all future distance calculations will use Google Maps API, while your past data remains unaffected.
  • Metric for distance – You can set the metric for distance as Kilometres and metres (km, m) or Miles and yards (mi, yd). Your selection will be applied to all distance related metric across journeys and reports.


  • LeadSquared’s Proprietary Distance Computation Algorithm (Recommended) utilizes location coordinates from the mobile device of a checked-in user to estimate the distance travelled fairly accurately for any given day.
  • The Google Direction Maps API records the latitude and longitude coordinates and returns the distance travelled by your users, by assuming a specific path of travel.
