How to Force a GPS Location Point

When and Where GPS Points Are Acquired

  • TSheets only tracks locations when an employee is clocked in, not when they're on a break, clocked out, or signed out. If your employees have any further concerns about GPS tracking, please direct them to: Top 3 Employee GPS Tracking Concerns.
  • GPS points are acquired approximately every 10 minutes, unless one of the above events occurs. A GPS point, however, is not acquired if an employee uses their mobile device to force quit TSheets.
  • TSheets will only acquire another point if the employee's mobile device has moved more than 150 meters, unless the employee clocks in, switches jobs, clocks out, or forces a GPS point.

If, in between any of the above events, you want to force TSheets to record your location:

  1. On your mobile device, on My Time Card, under LOCATION/GPS, tap Touch to view map.
  2. On the Location information screen, in the lower left corner, do one of the following:
    • iOS: Tap the teardrop icon.
    • Android: Tap the compass icon.
