Location services allow you to keep track of testers in the field, and capture where related attachments are uploaded. This can be very helpful if you are trying to find someone close by or if you are trying to locate those hard-to-find assemblies. This article shows you how to enable location services in Syncta.

1. Select Administration from the navigation menu, and then select Company Options.

2. On the Manage Company page, change the Collect Location Data From Users setting from No to Yes.

3. Click Update Company at the bottom of the page to save your changes.

You're all set! Now, each user will be prompted to allow our application to use their location. We only capture the user's location while the Syncta application is running on their electronic device. We do not capture the location when it is not running. 

NOTE: If you're on a PC, the location that appears might not be accurate because location services use the IP address of your Wi-Fi server.

Now when you look at maps you will see the location of other users.

And the location where attachments are uploaded.
