Overview

When you are adding an physical address to a job site or schedule, take a look at the Google Maps visualization and verify that the pin best reflects your physical address.

If the Google Maps visualization does not match the physical address where you want users to clock in, you may want to assign latitude and longitude coordinates because they can be more accurate than Google’s address database.
