What is What3Words?
What3Words is a service that provides 3 words for every 3m geocode in the world, making it easier than ever to find the exact area of where work needs to take place. For example, if you were to go to https://what3words.com/waddled.branch.scarf - this would bring you to our office.
This is particularly useful for those who work on sites without addresses.
Integration with MyMobileWorkers
The integration will allow you to select the location of a job and generate a What3Words reference. From there, the mobile user would be able to open the job on the MyMobileWorkers app and navigate to the job using What3Words.
How do I set up What3Words on my account?
If you would like to set up What3Words on your account, please get in touch with your Account Manager who will be able to discuss set up with you.
How do I use What3Words?
Once the integration is set up on your account, it's really simple to start using What3Words for your job addresses. When you create a job on the MyMobileWorkers portal, press 'Choose Coordinates from Map':
This will bring up a map where you can either type in an address, type in geo-coordinates or enter the What3Words reference:
Simply type in the What3Words reference and click the What3Words button to the right (///) - this will then generate the address and geo-coordinates for the job). Once that is done, press save in the bottom right-hand corner and continue with your job creation.
This is how it will look once you save:
How does it work with the app?
Your mobile workers must have the What3Words app installed to successfully use the reference to navigate to the job. (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.what3words.android).
Once downloaded, the option will appear to navigate to a job via What3Words.
