How to improve the accuracy of geolocation iOS

Sometimes you may notice that your location on Google Maps is inaccurate or not determined at all (the blue dot is not shown). This article discusses how to troubleshoot such problems.

Note. More accurate location will help improve search results.

How to find out where you are

  1. Open the Google Maps application on your iPhone or iPad. Google Карты 
  2. In the place where you are, a blue dot will appear. If not, click on the target icon in the lower right corner of the screen. Местоположение 

How Maps determine where you are?

Location is determined by the following data:

  • GPS Signal from the satellite (accuracy - up to several meters).
  • Wi-Fi. The closest source of wireless network.

  • Cell Tower. The place to connect to the cellular network (accuracy - up to several kilometers).

How to enable geolocation

Do the following:

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.

  2. Click Privacy next to Geolocation Services.

  3. Ensure that the Geolocation Services feature is enabled.

  4. Scroll down and click Google Maps.

  • If there are obstacles between you and the cell tower, for example tall buildings, the location may not be precisely determined.

The data in the application is not updated (tasks, checks, etc.), although in the QVALON web form they are
If the above problem occurs, you should

  1. Check whether the device works on the Internet (it is necessary to synchronize data in QVALON). To do this, go to several sites and click on the links.
  2. If the sites are loading, then the Internet may be working, but it is not stable and the QVALON synchronization cannot pass correctly. In this case, you need to synchronize via Wi-Fi (after turning off the mobile Internet).

Data cleaning or QVALON cache on Android

The data cleaning procedure or the QVALON cache on Android is performed when there is a suspicion that the application is not working correctly.

Clearing the cache deletes the most frequently used data, temporary files, etc. 

Data cleansing leads to a complete erasure of information in the QVALON i.e. recovery at the time of its installation.

Initially it is recommended to clear the cache. If this does not help, then clear the data, because the cache in this case is also clear.

To clean the need (on different models may vary):

1. Select Settings.

photo_2020-06-17 16.44.11.jpeg

3. Select Application Manager, Find QVALON and click on it. First select Clear cache, if it did not help – Clear data.

Hierarchy of rights:

user_rights_2.png

  1. Store level - stores are assigned. He has the right to check the store associated with it.
  2. Level "Region" - automatically activates the check-box "Checking", regions are assigned, it has the right to check and set tasks for all active stores in its associated regions. He is the director of the region (one or several).
  3. “Division” level - automatically activates the “Checking” check box, divisions are assigned, it has the right to check and assign tasks to all active stores of divisions attached to it OR assign tasks to all regional directors of its BN that belong to its division.
  4. The level of "Company" - he has the right to set tasks for all active stores and check them (if he has an active check box "Checker"); assign tasks to all directors of the regions of his business direction; assign tasks to all directors of his business direction divisions; set tasks for all the director of his business direction stores.

Depending on the rights granted, the user will have access to a different set of reports.

Reports can be further customized in Administration — Users — Reports.

User rights management_2.png

Advanced options (checkboxes).

The parameter "Can schedule employee checks" is responsible for the presence / absence of the field "Select user" in the checks calendar. In this window, the user can assign checks to those who have the same chosen business direction, as well as being equal in level or lower by one level (for example, the Division can assign to the division and region, but cannot to the store).

The "Checker" parameter is responsible for the possibility of assigning a user to the checkers in the store, as well as the ability to schedule checks (presence / absence of the "Calendar of checks" tab). Levels "Division" and "Region" by default "checking".

Putting down the Store Director will automatically fill the Store level and the Store Directors business line, as well as the Checker option.
