  • Where and when should I use the VISTrak App?
    You can check in to any and all sites that are registered with VISTrak. However, you can only check in to ONE site at a time and only when you are within location range. Open the app and check-in when you arrive on site, make sure you don’t close the app completely. Feel free to minimise the app and use your phone as normal, and when you’re ready to leave the site make sure you check out. If the site you are visiting has poor WIFI reception, you can check in prior to walking through the site entry, as long as you are within range.
  • App Install, Version and Location Settings"
    1. Why should I allow notifications? Notifications may be sent to you whilst you are checked in to a site in case of an emergency or urgent safety communication. 2. Why should I allow camera access? Allowing camera access will give you the ability to add your profile picture and take photos to add to site visit reports. Make sure your profile picture is similar to that of a passport grade. 3. Why do I need to set my location services to ALWAYS? Ensuring app location services is set to ALWAYS allows you to check-in to sites registered with VISTrak when you are within range. This also allows you to minimise the app whilst checked in.

  • The Auto Check Out feature is not working?

  • Data usage & battery life
    1. How much battery does the app use? Depending on your phone model, the app uses approximately 4% of battery per hour when it uses foreground battery mode, in line with social platform apps (when you are actively using the app, taking photos, browsing or creating comments). However, once minimised, the app shifts to background battery mode, using less than 2% per hour. 2. How much data does the app use? Data sent to and from the app is compressed and encrypted to minimise data usage. Expected data usage for moderate activity is less than 0.5 to 1mb per day. Moderate activity includes multiple check in and check outs, adding photos and creating comments.
  • How do I check in to a site if my mobile phone runs out of battery life?
    Although this would be a rare occurrence, it may still happen. If the company you work for uses VISTrak contact your company administrator. However, if you are attending a site where the company is registered with VISTrak please see a company representative to manually check you in.
