Create a Geo-Fencing Post

Who can use this feature?





Geo-Fencing monitors an AlertMe user's location and notifies them based on user preferences. It is a separate post type that allows users to leverage the location services of network recipients to notify users when they enter or leave a designated geographic area.

This article will show you how to create a New Post with Geo-Fencing.
