A loose scheduled route is a route where the check times of each point inside the route doesn’t matter. In a loose route, the only things that matter for it being considered a correct route are:

1. Its start date & time

2. Its end date & time

Concisely, the order and the time that each point will be checked are not significant, as long as they will be checked within the defined span of the schedule.

For more information, you can refer to our web application user guide and learn more about scheduled routes.

Yes they can, so the staff will be aware of what to do next at any time.

My client wants a patrol done every hour, starting at 11 am to 3 am the next day. Do I have to create 16 Schedule routes to receive the email alerts?

You only have to create 1 schedule (strict - non loose). Also, select the same checkpoint 16 times and type the preferred time for each.

Can the supervisor receive an alert on his/her smartphone as well as on desktop?

Once the guard has pressed the SOS button, the supervisor will receive an alert on desktop, an email and an SMS. (The supervisor can also use the web application on his/her smartphone).

Will QR-Patrol notify our guards automatically about any changes the supervisor made on schedules?

When a supervisor modifies a schedule, changes will be transferred to the mobile application and it's schedule section will be updated. In case the guard has already scanned one or more checkpoints of the initial schedule, the changes will be applied on the next recurrence of the scheduled route. Generally, Scheduled routes appear on the Schedule section of the mobile application, on the start time and date specified on the scheduled route.

What happens if my staff fails to follow a schedule?
