Today we will be talking about a report that recently got a very interesting update: the Location Discrepancy Report. With this report, you will be able to monitor your employees' movements by making use of the power of Smart Fences, which we have covered on several previous occasions. Every time an employee triggers an alert, Timecard will compare the distance that was setup in the Smart Fence itself, with the actual location that was reported by the staff members from the device.
This way, you will be able to tell how far or close they were to the expected address. Note that this report will generate entries only if the pinged location is further than 100 meters, or around 300 feet, and you will also get a "Discrepancy Distance" column showing the actual distance between the two points:

Also, as a wonderful bonus, you can click the reported location and it will open a new tab showing the map with the expected location (marked as "E"), the reported location (shown with an "R"), and a line showing the distance between the two points:
As with most reports, you can generate and view it online, create a CSV file and also filter it by a specific date range, teams and users.
We know you will take full advantage of this useful report, but if you want to learn more about it, leave us a comment below!
