Nextstop 3 Geofencing

When a driver is outside the geofence radius of a stop an alert will pop up when trying to update the status of the stop (at pickup, picked up, at delivery, delivered / route stop arrived, route stop completed). 

Driver’s location in the mobile must be on for geofencing. Please refer to your device's manual for more details. 

When the driver clicks "Yes", the status code will be recorded in the order that the driver was outside of the geofence. This will display in the order status codes in the Operations App. If the driver clicks "No", the driver will not be able to continue the workflow in Nextstop.  

There is a 15 second delay when obtaining geofencing locations.
