The Geolocation Tab allows you to track and monitor Contacts or Dispatch Groups from your WebChat interface. Note that “Groups” (i.e.- designated grouping of contacts) are referred to as “Dispatch Groups” for the purposes of Geolocation. From this tab you can create or delete Dispatch Groups, or view a Dispatch Group by selecting it.
Viewing Contact Geolocation Information
Center Menu Icons:
Message – Option to send an instant message to this contact directly
Call – Call this contact via direct VoIP call, or via Walkie-Talkie (PTT) call
Reports – Access reporting menu for tracking report, or daily/weekly location history reports
Selecting a Contact from the left-hand list will display details of that Contact’s location, superimposed on a map of that area. This information includes address, speed (if applicable), availability, status (dictated by device signal settings), and most recent position update.
Selecting a Dispatch Group from the left-hand setting will show all members of that group, using their most recent, last-known positions. You can also select a Contact directly from there to display the information described above for individual Contacts.
The Location History option allows you to view the movements of a Contact over a period of time that you specify. This data can also be exported to a spreadsheet. The accuracy of location is measured by the strength of cell signals and/or WiFi signals being received by the Contact’s device or smartphone.
