Hubstaff now support Job Sites (also known as geofencing) which essentially designates an area somewhere in the world where a person that is tracking time should be. The feature can detect when the user enters the job site (and automatically start the timer) or leaves the job site (and automatically stop the timer). You can also simply restrict the user to tracking time while in a job site if you would still prefer for them to track time manually. Whenever a user is tracking time within a job site the system provides a report of when and for how long the user spent at that job site, which you can generate and review with our Reports feature.
This guide will show you how you can access the Job Sites feature and use it for your team.
Add job sites
You will see a world map. If you have any job sites already saved, they will appear on the map as location markers. To add in new job sites and view any that you currently have, click on the “Manage job sites” button.
To create a new job site, you will need to enter a name for the job site, the address, and the radius of distance you would like around the job site that can be tracked in. Click the “Next” button to continue.
You will now have the option to assign members to the job site, pick automatic actions you would like taken when the members enter the site, and assign the site to a project. You can also add in additional actions by clicking on the “Add new action” button. When finished, click “Save”.

Reports can be pulled on job site activity. To find the job site reports, click on the “Reports” section on the left-hand side and select “All reports”. Within the reports menu, you will see the category of “Job sites” with a “Visits” report, click on that to open it.
On the report you are able to see the member’s name, job site, when they entered the job site, when they exited the job site, and the duration of time that was tracked. With the date selector, you can change the date range shown on the report. There is also a “Filters” button, please click on that.
