To show mobile users on maps, you must enable tracking on the Mobile Server roles and location sharing on Genetec™ Mobile devices, and grant the View mobile users privilege to Security Desk users.

What you should know

Mobile users are only displayed on georeferenced maps.
NOTE: A mobile user might not show up correctly on a map that is georeferenced manually, such as a floor plan, because manual processes have a certain level of inaccuracy.
