2023 - Lone Worker Feature is Launched
One of the major updates in 2023 was the addition of the Lone Worker feature. This tool allows workers who are on a job by themselves to send updates to let their supervisors know they are doing well or need help. This feature is a huge step toward keeping lone workers safer.
Workers and supervisors can set check-in times and if that time is reached without an update from the worker, the supervisor knows they need to send someone to check on the worker.
