Global Positioning System (GPS) clocking uses a device such as a smartphone or a tablet to pinpoint a location. For example, with the GPS clocking method, a company can identify who got to work on time and who haven't turned up. This article explains how to set the location as compulsory for clocking via GPS for a company to monitor the staff's whereabouts.

    a. Optional: Users can clock without turning on the phone location.
    b. Compulsory: Users cannot clock if the phone location is off, and they must open the 
    location for clocking.

3. Application.
