January 2022

The Daily Summary gets some great new features with this release. We've added bounding boxes on the map: as you scroll over a vehicle, you see a box on the map enclosing its tracks for your selected time. For larger fleets, this lets you quickly view general track locations without loading lots of data - it's snappy and fast. You can also add a route geofence directly from the Daily Summary. Vehicle Status and Charts received some new additions for a great user experience.

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

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.

October 2021

Tracks continues to grow and improve. We know how crucial it is to daily operations for fleets. This month, we've added lots of new functionality around track points: finding the closest track point on the map, one-click view of a track point on the map from the track points list, and sorting columns to better view your track point data.

August 2021

This month, we've added more functionality to our beta features, and we've also added some goodies for more advanced user cases.

The new Vehicle Status (beta) can now be customized with the data you need. We've also made the new Tracks the default experience for all users.

For more complex use cases with ArcGIS map layers, ArcGIS layers now work with both Google Maps and our 'peek' function. Single device mapper scripts can now use multiple outputs.

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

Learn how to update your server.

New

Maps

  • ArcGIS layers can now also run on top of Google Maps! (previously, only the Native Map supported ArcGIS map layers) To use ArcGIS with Google Maps, you have to register for a Google "Map ID." Configure and read more under Site Admin > Maps > Google Maps.
  • Map "peek" tool (press and hold "P") dims the ArcGIS layer and now also all Map UI to show the underlying map.

User Experience

  • Add English UK measurement file.

Developer & System Administration

  • Now you can select multiple outputs for a single device mapper script! Cases like a single long string of data needing to be split into many variables should be simpler to handle and have better performance if implemented with one script.
    To set: return { 'Var1': 12.3, 'Var2':false, 'Var3':'textabc' }
    Setting a single field works the same. Setting multiple outputs requires enabling the new script engine if not already enabled, in SiteAdmin>Settings>Scripts.
  • Update .NET Framework from 4.7 to 4.8.
  • Change library for serializing Avro data to the official Apache.Avro library.

Tracks 2.0 (beta)

  • The default workspace is updated to use the new Tracks panel! Existing workspaces with a Tracks (Legacy) panel have also been updated to use the new Tracks panel. The legacy Tracks panel is available until its removal.
  • We updated the naming to reflect the change: the former Tracks is now Tracks (Legacy) and the former Tracks 2.0 (Beta) is now Tracks.
  • Updated the copy in the Tracks trip list summary.

Vehicle status (beta)

  • Add Vehicle Status Templates. You can now customize the new Vehicle Status feature!
  • Add an option to Edit/Create Vehicle Status templates by right-clicking the Vehicle Status.
  • Clicking the event count in Vehicle Status now opens the Event panel.

Device Plugins

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

  • Fix the Time On Site Report (TS1009) not rendering on some servers.

Developer & System Administration

  • SAML: fix cross site request, some workspace saving & loading issues, and a typo.
  • Fix GetTransientFieldScriptsByUser.
  • geofence.find(lon,lat) in scripts without specified group, with group names included in returned geofence objects.
  • POI: Fix custom field input rendering.
  • Fix POI pagination in REST.
  • Fix issue with adding/updating users through REST.
  • Fix issue with logging in to Site Admin when still using SOAP services after SOAP deprecation (issue triggered by Db Connection starvation).
  • Fix importing application templates with removed and renamed languages (ignore those errors).
  • Fix a rare case of GpsGate Service crashing.

Improved

Security improvements have been made, so we recommend a server update.

We also improved the user experience with a better preview of selected items when using a multi-select list in the application.

Developer & system administration

  • Finding files is easier with two default file extention changes: batch user import and batch update have default .csv extensions. Import geofences has default .kml/.kmz and .csv extensions.
  • More detailed logging for 'not found' geofences and database-related errors. We also improved cleanup for template entries for deleted items.
  • Limit ongoing events for the same user and event rule to 100 from namespaced scripted events.

Use case-specific/ regional plugins have also been updated:

  • MPOB: add QZE report.
  • SUTRAN: convert speed to km per hour (instead of miles per hour) according to new specifications.
Fixed

A few fixes for the user interface and a few for the backend/system admin are included.

  • Fix bug where “Install plugin” button wasn’t correctly shown in the User form.
  • POIs: Fix color in import. Fix timeout error when removing a POI group with many POIs. Fix dispatch menu on POI plus various POI post release fixes.
  • Fix Charging and SosButton field type.

Developer & system administration

  • Bug fix for "Cannot access a disposed object. Object name: 'MySqlConnection'"
  • Remove a geofence from groups when it's deleted through REST API.
  • Fix compatibility with the current Reporting plugin.
  • Fix database deadlock when processing reporting data using Microsoft SQL Server.
  • Fix case where data was not cleaned up after removing an application.
Deprecated

SOAP WebServices is discontinued. Use the corresponding REST API.

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.
