Geofence Settings in Boomr

Geofence Settings in Boomr

The geofence setting is company specific, and can be set and changed easily from the Preferences page in the management dashboard. To do this, simply sign into your account, click on your name in the top right corner of the screen and select Preferences from the drop down menu.




A new account with Boomr, by default, does not have a geofence set. A geofence is the distance from a location within which an employee is able to check in for work and log time. For example, if your account's geofence radius is set to 0.5 miles, all employees that attempt to check in for work at a work location that they are farther than 0.5 miles away from, will not be able to. 


The geofence radius can be set very tight, up to 0.05 miles (meaning employees must be very close to the office or work location to check in), or more loosely, say 1 mile or 2.5 miles. You can also determine whether or not the geofence should apply to both check in and check out.
