What are locations in Boomr?
Locations in Boomr can be thought of in several ways. Primarily, locations are anywhere employees go to do work. This can include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Multiple physical locations (retail, restaurant, etc.)
- Multiple job sites (construction, service providers, etc.)
- Clients (track time to clients for billing/accounting regardless of physical location)
How to add a Location without an address
In certain instances, you may want to add a “location” to Boomr that doesn’t include an address. Some examples include “travel” or “drive time”. If you want to know how much time is spent moving between locations or off-site, adding a location without an address is now an option in Boomr.
First, you must enable this option in your preferences menu. To do so, click on the person icon in the top,right corner and then on ‘Preferences’.
Then select ‘User Permissions’ from the left side of the screen. The second preference under ‘Adding Locations’ must be set to ‘On’. After setting this to ‘On’, click on the ‘Save’ button at the bottom of the page.
Next, you’ll need to click on ‘Manage’ and then on ‘Locations’. Follow the steps in the ‘Add New Location’ section above to add a new location. When you do, a new checkbox will appear marked ‘This location does not have a physical address’.
Please note, any location without a physical address cannot have check-ins and check-outs limited by a geofence. If the mobile app is used, location at time of check-in and location at time of check-out will still be reported in the shift details for any shift tracked in real-time.
