Historical tracking can be enabled for ESChat Users that will “drop” bread-crumb markers on a configurable interval.

Each breadcrumb shown on the map can be ‘clicked’ to display the user name, date and time stamp of the marker, as well as the speed and direction of the ESChat user when the bread crumb was dropped.

Historical Tracking information can be downloaded as a csv file via the wen management portal, and customers that are using the ESChat webservice APIs can remote collect location data for use in third party applications.
