Mobile location in real time

  

Good afternoon, how can I get the location of a mobile device in real time on the web of the outsystems platform?

Hi Michael,

Not sure I understood your question - you need to track the location of multiple mobile devices centrally in web console? If so, what part of the problem are you struggling with - determining the location, almost real-time frequency, communications with the server...?

A mobile app can periodically transmit its location to the server through Javascript (you probably don't need it real time, but you can decide on the frequency the information is sent). The location itself could be determined by using the Location Plugin or Background Location Plugin.

Note that your scenario may fit existing Mobile Device Managers (MDM) solutions, which are often used by larger organizations to manage the employee's devices.
