Allow users to select Event Rules using Custom Fields with scripting

Using this method you will allow your application users to select their Notifications preferences for their vehicles' Event Rules. This is specially useful in a restricted environment with users with limited roles. You as an administrator will save time with fewer user's modification requests. The users can do it by themselves in a very intuitive way by just modifying the Vehicle properties and select the values in the GUI. In our example we will create a combo box (Custom Field) that is going to be available in the Vehicle Properties (User Access Mask) where the user can select and save which notification type he wants for a Speeding Alert for that vehicle. The Speed Limit value is also a property that the user can set to each vehicle and will define the execution of the Event Rule.

How to combine Custom variables and Device mapper scripting

In this guide we want to demonstrate a real-life use of custom variables and device mapper scripting. Device mapper scripting can solve problems of the sort "If I have one or more input signals from my GPS device and I want to decide what to do in the output using different formulas". On the other side, Custom Fields allow us to assign non-standard properties to our vehicles/units like registration number, fuel tank size, vehicle color, etc. A practical case using both solutions would be for example if we have different fuel tanks in different vehicles (vehicles can have different fuel tank sizes). How can I adapt the fuel level signals to display the correct values (liters for example) for my fleet?. The difference between non-linear mapping is that in this case we will use a vehicle property and a GPS input to generate the correct output.

Adding Parameters and Time Periods in your reports

If you want to customize certain reports like Breadcrumb (BC1000) or Maintenance Service History (MT1000) you may want to add to them the possibility to select Tags instead of a single vehicle/unit. Another possibility could be to add a time period to the Maintenance report where this is not included by default. To do both things we are going to use as a reference the Maintenance Service History report. Follow these steps:
