Additional Enhancements

New Check-in Merge Fields

Due to variance in the accuracy of GPS units over the course of a day, check-ins are often recorded hundreds of yards or even miles away from an actual location. The check-in feature now includes several merge fields that record the accuracy of the GPS units being used during the check-in. This allows you to identify check-ins recorded with a given level of accuracy. 

Accuracy can be measured in:

  • meters
  • kilometers
  • feet
  • yards
  • miles

These fields are available under the Base Object menu in Setup.

Street View

Now when you right click on the map, you can use Google Street view to see what an area looks like from the ground. Be sure to zoom into an area to use this feature.
