    • Recovery of the geolocation as well as the IP address of the smartphone used when pointing to quickly see if the person has pointed at the customer (PS: the user must agree to be geolocated).
    • Management of night hours. Ability to complete a time recording started the day before.
    • Ability to set a minimum time between each time recording.
    • Possibility to manually complete the time slots not fully recorded in the day from the Time slots view.
