Can I Specify GPS Coordinates When Creating a Job or a Customer?

As you probably know already, you can specify an address when you create a job or when you create a customer.  

What you might not know is that you can enter a Latitude and a Longitude instead of an address.  

How to specify GPS coordinates

Option 1 - Find the closest address to a set of co-ordinates

If you enter a set of co-ordinates without any brackets as per the example below and then wait one second, vWorkApp will suggest the closest address.  Click on this address in the pop-up menu and we will use the address you selected.

-36.853372,174.777739

N27 9.927,W80 8.673

N27 9.927, W80 8.673

27 9.927N,80 8.673W

27 9.927N 80 8.673W

27 9.927N, 80 8.673W

27.16545,-80.14455

 

Option 2 - Plot the exact location on the map regardless of the address

If you enter a set of co-ordinates contained in a set of brackets as per the example below, vWorkApp will plot this on the map exactly where you specify and will ignore any street addresses that may be available for the area.

[N27 9.927,W80 8.673]

[N27 9.927, W80 8.673]

[27 9.927N,80 8.673W]

[27 9.927N 80 8.673W]

[27 9.927N, 80 8.673W]

[27.16545,-80.14455]

 

As you can see, we support either degrees decimal minutes or decimal degree coordinates in a variety of formats.  
We do not currently support degrees decimal minutes.
