There are two scenarios when updating customer locations:
- You have one Main Customer e.g. Pick ‘n Pay Head Office. With lots of other Pick ‘n Pay branches that all fall under the same client. You will therefore only be able to have one location set for this client (usually their Head Office) or if there is an address that you frequent the most, rather set this address as the “Customer Location”. For all other visits to Customers under this brand you will always be marked “off site” but you can then say in your visit comments “visited Pick ‘n Pay Lansdowne today at their store”. This way even if you were marked off site your map will reflect that you were at Pick ‘n Pay Lansdowne.
- At some stage gps co-ordinates were incorrectly listed and now when you are at your customer (of which there is only one of its kind) it marks you as off site. In this case you need to edit location. You can follow the 3 steps below, by going to click on the edit pen, selecting edit location and then moving your map to place your pin at the right spot and once at the right spot, saying Set Location, and then saving the new location. Now your location will be updated and you can go Add your visit and it will mark you as on site.
Click on the three images below to view the how to views on screen:
Once you have pushed on "Edit Location" button as mentioned before, look for the "Set Current Location" button (it looks almost like a sniper crosshair from a rifle) as indicated below in red. This will set your current location and you will also be able to see how far away you are from your Customer's set location.
If at this time, your map does not display your accurate location, I would suggest troubleshooting your Google Maps app first - Check for updates on Google Maps via the Google Playstore. Device Firmware updates that may be available for your device - These updates include GPS satellite positioning quickfixes.
Or you may be out of data, time for a topup :-)
Set the location as indicated below and then you may continue your visit as planned.
After setting the location, simply click the "save" button (the "tick").
