There are various use cases where it may be useful to have an Everbridge Contact update their current location with a 'check-in', which can then be used for notification targeting purposes, or to help understand their situational risk and context. The Digital Apps API provides a convenient Check-in location endpoint for integration with a standalone app.

Location Source

To enable the check-in functionality to work correctly, a Location Source must be set up with the name of the source matching the name configured for the app in the Digital Apps API page.

The location source is what will be displayed against a Contact for their Last Known Location, to help identify how the Contact has provided this information.
