Mobile Device Network/Tracking Setup (Important)

BullRush utilises your mobile device's WiFi, 4G/3G mobile data and GPS capabilities to maximise the accuracy and efficiency of the Time Tracking and Location Tracking functionality.

We highly recommend that you enable WiFi, Mobile Data and GPS when using BullRush. The accuracy and functionality of the application can suffer if one or more of these features is not active.

BullRush WiFi:

BullRush requires WiFI for GPS tracking and ONSITE functionality to work correctly. If WiFi is disabled, BullRush will not be able to accurately track journey routes, locations and distances and will not be able to create ONSITE items at correct times or locations.

WiFi also ensures that Travel Time Items are closed and that Onsite Time Items are created for the relevant Client upon arriving at Saved Client Locations.

- Open Settings from the Homescreen and then search for "WiFi" in the search bar. Tap on the "WiFi" option in the suggestion list to open the WiFi Settings page

There are three ways to adjust WiFi Settings on Android devices:

- Swipe down from the top of your screen to bring down the quick access menu. The WiFi can be enabled/disabled by tapping on the WiFi icon button or you can open the WiFi Settings page by tapping and holding down on the WiFi icon button.

BullRush 3G/4G Mobile Data:

BullRush relies on Mobile Data to acquire GPS location information if you are not connected to WiFi. If Mobile Data is disabled (or not working) BullRush will still keep track of your GPS location and travel route but it will be unable to associate the positions it collects through WiFi and GPS with the specific Address Information (such as street names or suburbs.) This will result in Travel and ONSITE items marked as location  "Unknown.” There is no way to retroactively retrieve that address information once you connect your mobile device to an active WiFi or Mobile Data connection.

If one or more of these functions is disabled, however, Travel Items may not get created and Time Items may not store Location information.
