    Mobile Install uses a web interface, on a secure https page. It would be a relatively simple matter to add GPS locator functionality to tasks and work orders so than when a field tech checks in, their location get pinged and attached to the report we see as administrators.
    A leap forward for labor and efficiency management.
    I think the best way would be to give admins the option on whether each work order/task would ping location. It might not always be relevant. I know FieldNation uses a field tech app that will not let you sign in to a job unless you are basically in the parking lot of the customer site.
    I’m not sure how restricting sign in would work, but I know the coding for GPS pinging is already made and can be copy/pasted from here https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Geolocation_API
    Dot think it gets much simpler!
