Discover the Travel Tracker feature here! Keep yourself and your young people safe by letting others know where you are.
Travel Tracker keeps others up to date on your location. It is available on both iOS and Android app versions, and means that users can share their live location to a trusted contact for a limited period of time.
The feature enables a coach or member of club staff travelling with young people to share their location.
Where can you find it?
Once you're logged in, simply scroll down you main menu, which you see in the image on the left here. You'll find Travel Tracker in it's own menu item here. Once you click into it it'll take you to something that looks like a timer.
This is the Travel Tracker itself. Simply use the scrollers to select the time you wish to share you location for (between 15 minutes and 8 hours) and start the timer.
PLEASE NOTE: Location sharing must be enabled on you device when you use this feature. On first use, and subsequently if it is not turned on, your device will ask your permission to share your location with your relevant club.
Once you have started your travel timer, it will count down like any other timer. You can choose to stop it at any time by tapping "End location sharing" at the bottom of the screen. You'll also be asked to confirm that would want to start and end location sharing.
Sharing your Location
During the time it is counting down, you have the option to share your location.
When you wish to do so, click the "Share your location" at the bottom of the screen. This will then give you the option to use any of the communication apps on your phone such as email, bluetooth or messaging. Alternatively, you're able to copy the link and share on a Digital Notice Board that is already set up in your App.
IMPORTANT: If you're a child or young person, remember your location should only ever be shared with a trusted adult.
Simply pick your preferred method, and it will send a link to view your location in real time and open in an internet page with an image like a satnav, pinpointing your location for the recipient.
