Feature Overview: Check-In Schedules
Many organizations use check-in practices to keep employees working alone at remote job sites safe. Administrators can create and assign check-in schedules to automate routine check-in events, and if a check-in is missed, GeoPro instantly notifies those you designate. By having the user check-in periodically GeoPro can ensure their safety.
GeoPro’s robust check-in scheduler supports:
- Scheduled check-in at defined times or intervals (e.g. every 2 hours)
- Adhoc check-ins
- Automatic reminders sent to employees when due
- Real-time alerting of escalation contacts when a check-in is overdue (via email, SMS or the web app)
- Respond promptly to failed check-in incidents with automatic notification of designated individuals via email, SMS and the GeoPro Web Application
- Prompt response to missed check-in incidents
- Check-ins via a paired alert button
Check-In Schedules can be configured to use selected times of day or intervals (e.g. every 2 hours), and apply on set days of the week.
Note: If using a static schedule doesn't work for you, try Monitor Me. Monitor Me uses a rolling timer which dynamically accommodates to those that don't work set schedules. See Mobile App Feature Overview: Monitor Me for further details.
Once a check-in schedule has been created and assigned to device users, the GeoPro Mobile App user can simply enable and disable their assigned check-in schedule from within the app. Once enabled, the check-in schedule will be displayed in the app and the check-in logic will commence. At the check-in time, the user will be prompted to check-in. If the user is able to check-in at the check-in time, the schedule will be satisfied until the next check-in time occurs. If the user is unable to check-in within the buffer period, an alert will be sent to those designated on the account. This alert will advise the designated recipients that a check-in has been missed and the user is overdue. If configured, those designated can even be notified when a schedule is enabled, disabled, and when the user has checked-in. Pending and Overdue check-ins will also be displayed on the dashboard of the GeoPro Web App ensuring awareness for Administrators and Monitors logged in to the system.
When paired with the VSN Mobile V.BTTN, users can use a discrete wearable alert button to perform a check-in. See Mobile App Feature Overview: Alert Button for further details.
If you've selected to have your account monitored by GEOS and you've also selected the option to have GEOS monitor missed check-ins, GEOS’ International Emergency Response Call Centre will also receive the alert and contact the user to confirm their safety. If required, GEOS will work with first responders to dispatch and coordinate rescue. If assistance is not required, the user, Administrator or Monitor can simply check-in to clear the overdue state.
