Configure scheduled location access

The scheduled location access feature enables operators to actively track a group of users for a selected interval. Scheduled location access enables operators to more accurately track where mobile personnel are without relying on end users performing manual check-ins and check-outs from the mobile app. When location access is enabled, the last known location for all users in the selected distribution lists are updated at the configured interval. Operators can then target alerts and events by geolocation based on users' locations. End users receive a notification on their mobile app when tracking starts. By default, end users have the option to opt out from the location tracking.
If a user belongs to multiple distribution lists that are selected for tracking, the tracking interval for that user is set to the lowest selected tracking interval.
