How do I turn on location services?

 

If a user does not have their location services set to "Always", the first pop-up in the app will direct the user to make edits in their general phone settings. The location authorization must be set to "Always" while a user is on a load to ensure automatic updates, even when the app is running in the background.

Per the rate confirmation sheet, location services must be enabled for the entire shipment, and 3.5 hours before arriving at the pickup. Enabling location services is also a requirement for earning Quick Pay on Convoy loads.

1. 

Open the Convoy App
