Feature Request: Change locations without logging out

Feature Request: Change locations without logging out

The title of this post has been edited from the original: How to change locations on iPad?

 

I use the same iPad for different "locations".   The only way I can see to change locations is to log off and then log back in and choose the location I want. Is there a way to change locations while logged in?

PLEASE SQUARE! We have multiple locations and our district managers can’t switch locations without logging out. This is a major safety issue.

Re: Feature Request: Change locations without logging out

The need to log out and then back in again to change locations is a huge time waste and often means we have the wrong location, because in a mobile setting there is already too little time to do things. The fact that Square hasn't fixed this flaw in 5 years tells you how little they care about their customers. Of course, every time I use a Square product online they are constantly trying to upsell me. On the coffee shop owners groups I'm on, nearly everyone is warning people to avoid Square now. I wish I knew that before I bought the Square Terminal and Square Register.

Welcome back to the Community, @sellerdroit

 

Thank you for adding your voice to the Feature Request for changing between locations. 

 

This is the best thread for your post, so our Product Team can take a look. 

 

Appreciate your time!

Please add this feature ASAP! I own multiple food trucks and need to switch locations at each of our stops. 

There must be a better way. There have been multiple upgrades and this could have been included. 

SUUUUPER HELPFUL if they could implement this! I have one location which is my direct sale location and 9 which are all store stockist that I need to track inventory for. Signing out and in to change locations is incredibly annoying. 

Agreed

The fact that this has been a highly requested feature for more than five years and Square has done nothing toward fixing the problem just shows that customer feedback and needs mean little to nothing to them.

 

Enough is enough, I'm looking for another solution.
