Notifications/reminders based on GPS location
The ability to set reminders for field employees based on their arrival at a specific gps location or a reminder to clock out when the leave. The reminder could be a text message (SMS) or a push notification on their phone.
Ideally, a manager could set the message as a one time occurrence (such as a reminder to "Pick up 3 extra widgets for your next job" when the employee gets to the widget supplier), or a recurring reminder ("Don't forget to log out for the day" when the employee gets back to the office at the end of the day).
The specific gps location could be determined through the use of Google Maps, a website that reports it based on address (http://stevemorse.org/jcal/latlon.php), or maybe from a list of locations that the employee has historically logged in and out from.
This would be a great feature

How about geo reminders? When you get to a location remind me to clock in. Etc
That's a great idea Deryl, and an awesome resource, thank you so much for sharing :) Now lets make sure this gets some additional votes so that the developers review it at their next meeting.
