How to setup a geo-fence in uKnowva?

User Rating:  / 0

uKnowva geo-fencing works in tandem with the virtual biometric plugin.

To pin a location, you must define the latitude and longitude. Then you can mention the radius for

specifying the vicinity of the location. The latitude, longitude, and radius will create a perimeter by

defining a geo barrier or fence.


Thus, the employee can’t clock in if they are far away from the office location nor can their buddy

clock in for them. Flexibility for the HR manager to define multiple radii for the location allows

having multiple active geo-fences.


It comes in handy especially for the organizations who have dynamic IPs.
