November 2021

The Charts feature is now available in Tracks! With Charts, you can view your data plotted on a graph. Graphed data can be easier for operators and managers to analyze because any outliers are quickly spotted. We've also moved more server administration settings in-app and added updating geofences to our REST API.

Check below for the full notes or read the blog for an overview.

Learn how to update your server.

New

Tracks

  • Charts is here! Charts is a new tool for visualizing your vehicle data.
  • Make it easier to click on a trip on the map by increasing the click area.

Vehicle Status

  • Pinned widgets now available in Vehicle Status (beta)! Pinned widgets replace marker attributes in the preview release.
  • Background windows now come into focus if clicking the header again.

Developer & System Administration

  • Move system messages in-app (previously in Site Admin) so site administrators can access it with the other server settings.
  • License page moved from Site Admin to in-app.
  • Move Active Directory settings page (previously in Site Admin).
  • Add REST API for updating geofences.
  • Add language and measurement to the application exposable in scripting.

Languages

The following languages have been updated over the past month: Arabic, French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Improved

User Experience

  • Great UI updates provide a new and more modern look and feel to the entire application.
  • Branding color is more prominent in the application.
  • Make sure all selected items in report parameters are shown without horizontal scroll.
  • Improve the way we calculate column sizes when adding a new table column.
  • Improve the way we calculate the position of new table column(s).

Points of Interest

  • Make POI search less fuzzy - ensure all search words are considered during search.

Developer & System Administration

  • After you unlock server administration settings with your password, we keep the "unlocked" state for the duration of the user session. This removes the need to unlock it each time you open the window.
  • The default (first created) Site Admin user gets added to all applications for easy in-app access to server administration settings. The default Site Admin user will also be added to all new applications when they're created.
  • Add a check to prevent adding a default (first created) Site Admin user to application templates.
  • A mistakenly added Site Admin user will be deleted from all application templates.
  • Add IsInitialized flag to application in order to check application creation status.
  • Reduce database load spikes when syncing reporting data for decoupled components (e.g. POI and geofences).
  • Cleanup reports on disk 15 days after creation.
  • Better error logging when an report fails to be emailed.
  • Remove Google Maps key from url when generating a share location link.
Fixed

Vehicle Status

  • Added missing Inter font. (BETA users have been seeing the wrong font, unless they already had it installed).

User Experience

  • Fix slow geocoder that could make the UI not responsive.
  • Fix issue that could lead to menus, tooltips, and similar components being positioned outside of the screen.
  • Enable .woff2 Mime Type in IIS. Necessary to serve the new Inter font.
  • Fix duplicated format options in the Create Report dialog.
  • Fix an issue where moving or deleting overlapping polygon geofence vertices could sometimes become impossible, only creating additional vertices. Most obvious case: importing polygonal geofence data that use the relatively common practice of duplicating first and last vertex to close them.

Reporting

  • Fix issue causing missing geofences for reporting (rare occurrence).

Developer & System Administration

  • Fix issue with foreign key conflict (when changing the "save changes only" value and having multiple device mapper of same type).
  • Fix a "Getting Started" toggle switch visual bug that caused it to always be enabled in server administration settings.
  • Fix a bug that showed an empty "Admin" menu option for non-admin users. Admin features were not visible or accessible for non-admin users.
  • Fix issue where changing sort order in email/SMS provider settings opens the edit window as you release the drag bar (Firefox).
  • Fix issue where user could change email/SMS provider rows order without unlocking the page (Note: the changes could not be saved).
  • Fix issue where the database connection did not automatically handle failover when using MySql database clusters such as AWS Aurora.
