How To Use The Map Pins
Map pins are a very useful feature to have in an app. They can be the easiest way to determine where you’re going with the app. Not to mention they are there so that you get paid correctly. If you have gotten familiar with the Profit Pal App by now you will have noticed these funny looking rectangular boxes with a map and what looks like a pin pointing downward in them. Those are the Map Pins, and they are used by the app to calculate distance. They are an interesting and very useful feature of the app.
The way they work is, one map pin is for your job location. So you tap on the pin it opens the map, and you move the map until you see the general location of the new job. You don’t need to be exact just close enough. A pin will come up at that location marking it. Next, you hit done. The location map pin is set. Next, you tap the map pin identified as Current Location. Each time you tap the map pin it will show your current location. So leave that one as is, since its snowing where you are currently located. That’s it the app now has both your new job location and your current location. The app will use both to calculated distance from your current location to the new job location.
Can you begin to see how the Profit Pal App was designed to help you get paid for your travel expenses to and from your jobs?
This is why the Map Pins were put into the app. To help you to account for this expense. Now when you enter some of the other items such as Price of Fuel, and if you chose to also add the Mileage Expense, the app will use the calculated distance from the Map Pins help you to calculate this expense.
The app was designed with all of these features in mind, so you don’t need to bust your head calculating them each time you go out to a new job location, the app does it for you!
