How to perform Tours and scan Checkpoints

Users can perform tours randomly, or they may follow a schedule. Tours can be located either at the site level or zone level. A notification will appear on the mobile device when a scheduled tour is due to be performed.

Checkpoints can be scanned in any order and may be an NFC token, barcode, or GPS location. 

NFC will automatically scan. You need to trigger the barcode, and GPS options by selecting the appropriate button. ​

Note: Options presented in the checkpoint menu will differ based on the user's permission level.

For example, admins will have the ability to write checkpoints, whereas officers can only scan checkpoints. ​

  1. Start a tour (View active tour): Access the list of tours available for a site. Offices will select this option to start a tour during their shift or return to an active tour.
  2. View Scheduled Tours: View the list of scheduled tours for a site. ​
  3. View All Checkpoints: View a list of all checkpoints available at a location. Admins will select this option to write checkpoints.
  4. Scan a Barcode: Use this option to scan a barcode checkpoint.
  5. GPS Scan: Scan a GPS checkpoint.
  6. Reload Settings: If you add or modify checkpoints while a user is clocked in, the user may need to Reload Settings to get the list of updated checkpoints and tours. ​
  • Guard tours can operate entirely offline, no matter the checkpoint or whether the checkpoint has additional scan options.
  • Remember that certain activities must happen while online. These include signing in, clocking in, switching sites, accessing post orders, etc.
  • Data usage varies based on the actions you are taking. Checkpoints and tours don't require much data, but reports with pictures (especially with HD pictures) and video/audio recordings will use more data. As a rule of thumb, 1Gb per month per full-time employee should be sufficient. If the device is on 24/7, then 3Gb per month should be enough. However, if many HD pictures are added, you may require more.
