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. We also warn users when they select an extremely large dataset that may take awhile to run.

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

New

Tracks

  • When viewing a trip on the map, click anywhere on the trip to show the closest track point to that location.
  • Click on a track point in the track points table to show it on the map.
  • It’s now possible to sort the columns in the track point list.

September 2021

Server administration is now in app! Administrators will no longer need to change between tracking applications and Site Admin in order to change server settings. Use the redesigned main menu to access your settings.

Don't forget to test the features in preview release and provide feedback. Vehicle Status (beta) became customizable with last month's release - you get exactly the data you need with a status template for each role and use case. We've made the new Tracks the default for all users so that they can enjoy the great experience.

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