In this section, you can further simplify and tweak lone worker check in settings. The sections below describe additional Lone Worker configuration options.
Phone Time Keeping Settings
Restrict to Phone Number List: This option restricts check ins to specific phone numbers. When set to off, guards can check in from any phone number.
Enable Lone Worker Requests: Use this option to enable lone worker check ins.
Consider Late After: Number of minutes after which a check in is considered late.
Lone Worker Automatic Check Call: Enable this option to have the guard receive a call if they have not checked in at the scheduled time.
Note: The system will automatically make the call if the guard has not checked in.
Add A Restricted Call in Number
Phone Number: Add the phone number for the landline that the officers will be required to use. The "*" can be used as a placeholder for any value. This is useful if the officer could be calling from different landlines on the property. If all the property phones start with the same numbers, the "*" can be used as any value. For example, if an office building has 10 phones the officer could use and all start with (614)335-****, the "*" will allow any number in their place.
Description: Add a description for the landline. For example, "1st Floor Server Room A."
Click on the add phone button to add the number as an authorized number for the site.
Note: Restricting a number in the 'Restrict to phone number list' does not prevent someone from clocking in. However, it does generate a system exception to notify admins that a user called in from an unauthorized number.
Removing Restricted Call in Numbers
If a number needs to be removed, click on the [Delete] button in the same row as the number. This will delete the phone number from the authorized numbers.
