Requirements for proximity-based check-in

The following is required for a successful proximity-based check-in:

  • The booking must be for a personal space that is a place to work – desk, office, etc. (Other workspace types, such as lockers and parking spaces, etc. do not automatically check-in).
  • The booking must be for a personal space in the location set as the default location in your profile.
  • The Condeco mobile app must be allowed access to your mobile device’s location services when you reach the vicinity of the workplace. Condeco strongly recommends allowing the Condeco mobile app location access all of the time and not just when the app is open.
  • The booking is in the ‘check-in’ state when you reach the vicinity of the workplace.

Factors affecting proximity-based check-in

The following factors prevent proximity-based check-in from initiating the automatic check-in:

  • Access to your device location is denied or is only allowed when the Condeco app is open.
  • GPS is not turned on on your mobile device.
  • Location services are not turned on on your mobile device.
  • Your physical arrival route (via a basement, for example) may impact the location services and affect the automatic check-in function.

Proximity-based check-in is not possible in the following scenarios:

  • Bookings in locations other than the default location set in your profile.
  • Bookings for personal spaces that are not set as a workspace (i.e. lockers, parking spaces, etc.) do not trigger proximity-based check-in.
  • If a user does not self-certify in a location requiring self-certification before check-in, proximity-based check-in is not possible.
  • When QR code check-in is enabled for personal space, proximity-based check-in is not active for that personal space.
  • Meeting space bookings do not trigger proximity-based check-in.

Other considerations
