The Mobile Edge app cannot acquire a GPS location

  • The app will only attempt to acquire a GPS signal for upto 40 seconds when punching in and punching out. If a GPS signal is not acquired, it will not affect the caregiver's ability to punch in and record their tasks or clock out. The GPS issue will automatically be reported to the office for review. 

What devices does the Mobile Edge app work on?

  • The Mobile Edge app can be installed on any Andriod or Apple phone or tablet. 

What do I do if I am unable to capture a client's signature?

  • The caregiver will have to have the client sign a paper timesheet for the shift(s) missing a signature. The timesheet needs to include all the required details (date, times from app, tasks & employee signature). You must notify your supervisor that a paper timesheet will be submitted. The shift will be paid once the paper timesheet has been received by the office according to our payroll policies. 

What do I do if my client signs with a stamp and is unable to "sign on glass"?

  • The caregiver will have to punch in and out as normal using the Mobile Edge App but skip the client signature. The caregiver will also have the client stamp a paper timesheet for all shifts. The timesheet needs to include all the required details (date, times from app, tasks & employee signature). The shift will be paid once the paper timesheet has been received by the office according to our payroll policies. 

What do I do if I am not at the client's home at the end of the shift?

  • The caregiver will punch out at the required time. If it is away from the client's home, a GPS exception will be generated. Please notify your supervisor with the reason so that they can clear the exception in the system. 

How do I document the transportation of a client?

  • In limited cases, we allow aides to transport clients in the aide's personal vehicles. This needs to be approved by the Administrator and we must have a waiver signed by the client on file. In these cases, we will add a "Transportation" task to the PAS and the aide can mark the task completed and add any comments to the task.
