When people share it is a basic need to know where the shared object is. In addition, in many cases it makes sense to record the distances travelled with the object. WeeShare offers the appropriate tools for both cases. With the route recording, expenses can also be distributed accordingly and costs per distance travelled can be charged automatically.
Mark the position on the map and everyone knows immediately where the car, boat plane or whatever you share is located. Especially in urban areas there are usually no fixed parking spaces due to lack of space and therefore change frequently. The distance recording also enables enables you to list and distribute expenditures according to the use of the object. The same applies here as for bookings: If several people are involved on routes, they can be added when the route is recorded. This means that all expenditure can be distributed fairly. If it is agreed in the group that routes also incur costs at the same time, these can be recorded by administrators accordingly. These costs are automatically allocated after the recording of routes. More information on how to configure costs and expenses can be found here: Expense and cost settings
The position overview
On the position overview you can see where the object is and a list of all recorded routes and associated costs. Click on the map or on «Change position» to set the current position of the object. With the «+» icon you can manually enter routes or automatically record the route with a click on «track movement».
You enter manual distances in the corresponding unit. If costs are activated for the object, they are allocated at the same time when they are saved. You can add more users to this route so that the costs are shared accordingly.
With «track movement» WeeShare lets you automatically record your route. To do this, position your smartphone in direct contact with the sky so that the accuracy of the recording is optimal. In your profile you can additionally activate that the other users of the object can follow your recording live.
Distances and expenses
In the item settings the capture of expenses with distribution to distances can be activated. After that, all expenses can be connected with distances. In this way, the amount of expenditure is distributed among the users concerned on the basis of the distances recorded. Note that the distribution of expenses changes accordingly with newly recorded routes.

Tracking movements of my participants feels like a huge intrusion to their privacy and also error prone (to have to remember to turn tracking off again). What I'd like is simply a way to fill in the counter state at departure and arrival for a certain booking. With automatic calculation of traveled distance and costs (according to an agreed to cost per km).
Just to be clear regarding privacy. WeeShare does never record any position data without explicitly activation by a user. Also we do not use no data for any other purpose then the applications functionality. Regarding the counter there is a missing part within the documentation. This is already possible. Just activate "Use Counter" on "Location and Routes". Also ensure that you selected a valid category like "Car" for your item which does provide this feature.
