GeoLocation with ERPNext Mobile App

customization

#1

Hi All,
i am trying to create a DocType to work as checkin/checkout for my support team.
this Doc must include Current Location.
I have tested the new doc with mobile but it cant fetch the current location?
i belive that the app doesn’t have the permision to access the location services.

also i want to be sure that the Doc field will only contain the current location and nobody can change it. so the team members cant play with the location.
can anyone guide me

regards
Ahmed

There is a field type Geolocation in ERPNext which you can use. It uses Open Street maps and was added for the Agri module:

Of course there will have to be some kind of logic to validate but it seems like a good place to start.

it is not working from mobile app.

Did you get it to work from the app? It seems the erpnext mobile doesn’t have geolocation permissions to get current location.
Created an issue for the same.
