The Check-in/out Too Far Apart notification will be triggered in the Staff Activity report if:

  • Either the check-in OR check-out recorded GPS location is a considerable distance from the client's home address.

  • You can find out more information in Settings for Work & Travel Time

When will the Check-in/out Too Far Apart notification be triggered in the Staff Activity report?


  • In this example, the sitter checked-in at a distance of 1400 metres, with an additional GPS accuracy measurement of 423m and 16m - see GPS and Location Accuracy for a more detailed explanation of these figures. This tells us that there is a discrepancy in the check-in and out locations so we can look at this job in more detail.

  • Once you have noted the issue, you can click "Dismiss" to tidy up your report.

Don't forget, you can change the period of time of your report at any time. See View Staff Activity for more information on how to do this.

  • Click either the check-in or check-out time to display the recorded location map.

  • The check-in location marker is indicated with an "I" and the check-out marker with an "O". We can see that the check-out marker is at the client's house – the "house" icon is under the "O" marker. Therefore we conclude the check-in happened at some distance from the client's home address.

If you have a large team of staff, your report will probably be quite long. You can choose to view just the results for the "Check-in/out Too Far Apart" notification in your Staff Activity report to make it easier to contact the particular staff members involved.

  • Click on the dropdown for "All Jobs" and choose "Check-in/out Too Far Apart".

  • Click "Show Report" or one of the buttons for "Today", "This Week" etc.
