The Mobaro user must give access to the GPS data
A precondition for this to feature to work is the consent from the user of the device which is completing the check. The data will not be collected unless the user allows Mobaro to do so. The user is asked to give consent the first time he/she opens the mobile app (if using an iOS device), or the first time the GPS is activated (if using an Android).
If you want to change these settings later on, this is done in the settings of the device.
Tip: If you wish to view the map of a report, but the icon show map is not visible, no data is collected from the performance of the checklist. To prevent this, make sure that all devices used to complete checklists has GPS tracking enabled.
Accuracy of the map
The GPS data are collected from the mobile device, just as any other app that has been given the access. If given permission, Mobaro has access to the coordinates and conveys this information through the map of your checklist results.
The specific GPS positions are marked with a pin and a circle. This circle indicates inaccuracy, meaning the possible position of the check being made is within this circle. The radius of the circle can vary due to for example signal and power of the device.
Warning: Inaccuracy is inevitable and can possibly result in misleading location pins on your map. Therefore, always check up the assignee of the performed checklist, before making decisions based on the map of a report.
Understand the different pins
A green pin indicates that the check is completed with the highest possible amount of points.
A red pin indicates that the check is completed with the lowest possible amount of points.
A yellow pin indicates that the check is completed with an amount of points between the maximum and minimum span of possible amount of points.
A grey pin indicates that the check completed has no points added to the question answered.
A dark pin is the geographical position set for the location.
If a pin has a plus you can click and unfold the specific checks.
