GPS & Geofencing

Define zones based on GPS coordinates to which you can associate actions when the user enters or exits the zone. This feature is completely offline: your users don't need an Internet connection during their journey.

Insert the GPS component.

Double-click on the shaded area. A Google Maps map will appear: this is only there as a guide for placing your location markers. It will disappear from your screen.
 
To place a marker, move your map to the desired location using your mouse or use the search field to enter an address. Click + ADD MARKER on the left to place your marker.

In the component Properties window, you can specify your own Google Maps API key (for a fee), which is required if you want to white-label your application. The key API only works on a pandasuite.com domain.
 
 

Trigger a position-dependent action

Keep the GPS component selected and open the Interactivity window. Click + ADD.

You have several triggers available:
  • Geolocation error
  • GPS Detection marker [name]

Choose the action of your choice, e.g. open the pop-up of the index corresponding to the zone or an error message.
