What is the Portal Map?
If your service provider allows, You can view your jobs on the vWork portal map.
This will show you the job status and location in real time (depending on phone and GPS accuracy).
This is a great feature providing the ultimate in job detail and tracking for you.
How do I use the Portal Map?
Just click on the map tab in the portal.You will see any active jobs, if they have geocoded addresses.
You can zoom in and out and drag the map as normal.
The worker icon looks like this:
Why doesn't my job show on the map ?
Your job addresses need to be geocoded, so the job address has this symbol:
When a job address is not geocoded it will not show on the map. Geocoding means Google maps can recognize the address in the job. We have more detailed information on geocoding and map addresses in an article here.
One thing also to note is that if your driver or worker has not checked in with GPS for 30 minutes you will not see them on the map.
