By 10 advantages of working with Collabox, Digital transformation, Employees, Timesheet

A new feature has just appeared in the Collabox  : the geolocation of the timesheet! This addition allows you to know where your employees enter their hours. This control tool is very useful to know if  the little latecomer from the office still between his hours on the bus or at the office. 

How to activate or deactivate geolocation?

Whether you want to enable or disable this option for your organization, the path is the same, you will only have to check the box or not. To do this, you must display the settings of the organization by clicking on “Organization”.

To activate the function, all you have to do is check the “Geolocation of timesheets” box. However, don’t forget to save the changes!

Do you want to consult the geolocation data of your employees? Nothing could be simpler, since the report by employees tells you so. We even thought about giving you a Google Maps link to view the entries on a map. 

To access the report, you must first click on the “Reports” icon in the navigation bar at the top of the page. 

Then you must at least choose an option in the category “Report by employees” like “Include details of hours” in the example below. Don’t forget to check “Include geolocation”!

Here is an example of an employee report of timesheet entries. As you can see in the right column, entries with geolocation have a location link.

If you click on the link, you will see the position where the entry was made on the map.
