In this blog post, we will explore how to enable geofencing for your applications using the powerful GPS location block available in Clappia.

The Challenge: Site Inspections and Geographical Constraints

Let's consider a real-life scenario where you need your field agents or employees to perform site inspections and submit accurate location details. However, it's essential to ensure that they can only make submissions when they are within a specific radius of the site, ensuring data accuracy and security. This is where the geofencing feature of the Clappia GPS location block comes to the rescue!

Enabling Geofencing with Clappia

  • Configuring the GPS Location Block: We start by creating an application in Clappia for site inspections. The GPS location block can be easily configured by giving a label name, such as "Site Location," and enabling the "Default to Current Location" option to automatically capture the user's current location.

  • Geofencing Settings: To enable geofencing, we navigate to the advanced options of the GPS location block. Here, we turn on the "Enable Geofencing" feature, which unlocks two additional options: "Designated Locations" and "Radius." In "Designated Locations," we input the GPS coordinates of the desired site where submissions are allowed and we obtain its GPS coordinates using Google Maps.

  • Setting the Radius: In the "Radius" option, we specify the distance within which users need to be from the designated location to submit data. For example, if we set the radius to 200 meters, users can only make submissions when they are within 200 meters from the site location.
Setting the Radius
  • Error Message for Out-of-Range Submissions: Clappia ensures data integrity by displaying an error message if users attempt to make submissions from outside the designated radius. This prompts them to move closer to the site location for accurate data capture.

Real-Life Benefits of Geofencing with Clappia

  1. Enhanced Data Accuracy: Geofencing guarantees that the submissions are made precisely from the designated location, eliminating any possibility of inaccurate data.
  2. Improved Field Operations: Field agents can perform their tasks more efficiently as they no longer have to guess or remember the site location while submitting data.
  3. Increased Security: Geofencing ensures that sensitive data is captured only when employees are physically present at the site, preventing potential misuse of location-based information.

Mobile App Compatibility

The Clappia GPS location block is not only compatible with web applications but also seamlessly integrates with the mobile app. This allows users to carry out site inspections and submissions on the go, without compromising data accuracy.
