Geo Location is a new feature that allows Clients to confirm your check-in and check-out times at shifts. It uses your phone's GPS to show you're on site and ready to work and has many benefits for you. "Geo":
- provides proof to the Client that you are on site
- allows you to get paid on time
- meets our Client's needs, which help us provide more shifts to our community of Specialists
Geo Location does not replace the check-in and check-out process! You must still do this in order to get paid on time. See How do I check in/ check out of my shift?
Does Shiftgig’s app continue to record my location when I allow Geo Location, even when I’m not working?
No, our app only records your location if you confirm usage of location services when claiming a shift that requires it. On the day of your shift, Geo Location will begin one hour before, during, and two hours after your shift. Beyond those limits, this feature is inactive.
Will keeping my app open drain my battery?
No, the Geo Location feature is designed not to impact your battery life while you keep it open in the background for your Geo Location shift, even a shift of 8 hours or more.
