Venues are the locations where shifts happen. This article details how to add venues to Nowsta and how to customize them.
To add a venue, head to the Venues page and select new venue. There are a number of details you can enter for each venue in Nowsta.
The name of the venue is how you'll identify the venue throughout the other pages in Nowsta, so choose wisely.
As you enter the address, Nowsta will try to map the venue on Google maps. Take a close look at the location on Google maps to ensure you've entered the correct address.
You can enter a custom GPS geo-fence radius for each venue in Nowsta. This feature is only applicable if your organization is taking advantage of Nowsta's GPS self check-in functionality. For more information about GPS self check-in, see here.
