1. Feature Overview
Using Geo-tracking, you can capture the geographical location (physical location) of your Field Sales Users through the LeadSquared mobile app. There are two ways in which Geotracking works –
- When sales users post custom activities from different physical locations. When this happens, the LeadSquared mobile app captures the locations from which the sales user’s posted these activities.
- When the Track Real Time Location Mobile Permissions setting is enabled on your account. This ensures that your user’s location is tracked when they Check In and Check Out from the LeadSquared mobile app.
This feature can be used to monitor authenticity when your Field Sales Users are –
- Collecting KYC documents from your lead’s location.
- Collecting the lead’s signature.
- Delivering parcels to your lead.
- Your user’s location is continuously tracked every few minutes through their Android device. But if they’re using an iOS device, they need to show signs of movement for their location to be tracked.
- To ensure your users complete tasks and post activities only within a defined radius, enable LeadSquared’s Geofencing feature.
- You must be the Administrator of your LeadSquared account.
- Ensure location tracking is enabled on your user’s mobile device. To know more, refer to Location Tracking on LeadSquared Mobile.
