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.

Learn how to update your server.

New

Developer & System Administration

  • Server administration is now accessed in-app! Site Administrators will have access to a new 'Server Administration' menu inside the application. Most settings found in Site Admin -> Settings have moved.
  • New main menu design in tracking applications.
  • Always show new Tracks version on page load. Changing back to Tracks (Legacy) version won't persist after a reload.
  • More security in user creation: allow operators (or another role) to add new users of only pre-approved roles. Remove Empty (Advanced) user type and add option to create user type if none are available.
  • Enable automatic updates of client resources: faster bug fixes and less downtime due to updates.
  • REST: Add Device Last Activity to User Status REST.
