April 2021

We've introduced lots of new features to Tracks 2.0 and welcome your feedback. If you have fleet vehicles that make private trips in off-hours, we've made it easier to automate trip privacy. We've also added Hindi and Indonesian to our official system languages. Read the April release blog or continue below for all of the details.

Remember, Tracks (and vehicle status!) are available in preview release. Learn more about the new Tracks and Vehicle Status on the blog. Learn how to update your server.

New

Tracks

  • We made time & date selection faster by adding predefined time span options to calendars. Options: today, yesterday, this week, and last week.
  • We added a refresh button. It's especially useful when your selected date span is set to a future date/time and you want to update the panel with the latest data.
  • Tracks on the map now show track direction.
  • The average moving speed is now part of the trip summary.
  • Trips honor the exact start and end time provided by the user.
  • You can save the active screen (Trip List, Timeline, or Track Point List) to your workspace.

Localization

  • We released two new translations: Indonesian and Hindi.

Developer & System Administration

  • Off-hours trips can be set to remain private for all appropriate vehicles. We now allow scripting for hiding devices' position source (user.setHidePosition(bool) in Script App scripts) so you can automate off-hours privacy.

Device plugins

We also updated device plugins and added some more supported devices. To see the updates, search for your device on our supported devices page. All device pages show the releases for the device manufacturer.

Improved

Tracks

  • Formatting for smaller distances and durations has been improved.
  • The system now sorts vehicles in the order that they were added.
  • Vehicles should maintain their assigned label color while they are selected in the panel.

Localization

  • Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish received updates.

Developer & System Administration

  • HTTP types are now exposed to Click Scripts (WindowsMenuClickScripts).
