You can set how accurately vWork captures your GPS location in the vWork settings. A more accurate GPS location makes it easier for your dispatcher to see where you are on the map and is also useful when you need to capture GPS location information in a custom field.
Note: vWork only tracks your location when you are logged in to the vWork mobile app.
To set the GPS accuracy for location tracking on your Android device:
- Tap to open the main menu from the Jobs screen.
- Tap Settings.
- Tap Location Tracking.
- Check the Location tracking checkbox has a checkmark to confirm location tracking is turned on, then tap Accuracy to show the accuracy options.
- Tap to select the accuracy option that works best for you. We recommend the Automatic setting to optimize accuracy and battery performance.
