InterfaceYou have entered the main interface of the monitoring system. On the left there is the work area. Here you switch between panels like Monitoring, Tracks, My Places, Geofences, Notifications, Jobs and so on.
On the right there is usually the map. There can also be reports, messages, log, etc. - it depends on the mode chosen. The modes (Map, Messages, Reports) are changed in the mode-switch panel over the work area.
Dragging the map with the left mouse button and zooming it with the mouse scroll, move to the location (city or town) which will be the basic for you in the tracking process.
User SettingsNow open the User Settings dialog (click the appropriate button at the top). First and foremost, indicate your time zone and type of daylight saving time used in your region. These settings are extremely important as they affects time data in reports, messages, tooltips, jobs, routes, and everywhere throughout the system.
In the same dialog move to the Maps tab and press the button Store current. With this, the current map position will be stored and used for further logins to the system. At the end press OK to apply new settings. The page will be reloaded.
Checking the UnitData from the unit starts coming in the system. Each incoming message appears in the log. To see the log, open it pressing the button in the bottom right-hand corner of the program.
Except messages coming from tracking units, the log also shows current actions and operations such as creation and modification of geofences, notifications, unit properties, etc.
Unit info tip
Hover the mouse pointer over the unit in the Monitoring panel or on the map to see the latest data in a tooltip: last message time, location (address or coordinates), speed, etc.
The most reliable way to check unit operability is to view its messages. To switch to the Messages Mode, click on the messages link over the work area. Then select an interval to get messages for, and press Execute. Results appear on the right. There you can estimate how many messages were received during the indicated period and what kind of data they present. Besides, the track of unit movements is shown on the map.
Creating GeofencesGeofences are to be created in places of interest, which should get under control. For this, go to the Geofences panel in the Map Mode and press the New button.
The simplest and quickest geofence type to create is circle with specified radius. Enter name for the geofence and select the type Circle. Then double-click on the map in the place of supposed geofence. Alter the radius if necessary and press Save.
In a similar way, create as many geofences as necessary.
If you need a geofence of a more sophisticated form, choose type Polygon or Line. However, in this case a greater number of points is required to specify geofence's borders.
NotificationsNow we can create a notification about a unit entering a geofence. Go to the Notifications panel and press the Create Notification button.
Moving through the dialog with the help of the Next button, set the following parameters for the notification:
- Select your unit (tick it).
- Choose a control type, particularly, Geofence control.
- Specify a check type - Control entries to a geofence, and select geofence(s) to be controlled on the list below. To select several geofences, press the CTRL key on the keyboard and tick necessary geofences.
- Leave default notification text without changes.
- Choose a method of delivery, for example, Display online notification in a popup window.
- Key in a name for the notification.
- Press OK.
When the notification triggers, it will appear in the top right corner of the program.
ReportsTo switch to the Reports Mode, click the Reports link in the mode-switch panel above the work area.
First of all, we need at least one report template to generate a report according to parameters set there. We are going to create a report template containing two tables (visits to geofences and speedings) and a chart.
To create a report template, go to the Reports Mode and press the New button. At the top of the template properties dialog you see two important buttons - Add Table and Add Chart.
Press the Add Table button and set table type to Geofences. On the left, tick the columns to be displayed in the resulting report. On the right choose geofence(s). When finished, press OK. The table will be added to the report.
Then add the second table - press Add Table again and choose a table of Speedings type. For this table we have set the parameter Speed limit in unit properties (Advanced tab). In additional parameters indicate that a speeding should last at least one minute (Min duration parameter). Press OK. The table will be added to the report.
Then press the Add Chart button and select the necessary chart type (for example, mileage in trips). Note that for many charts to be generated the appropriate sensors are required. Press OK.
This is how our report template looks after we have added two tables and a chart. Report contents id displayed on the left. Now name the report and save it.
To obtain a report, set parameters in the work area: select report template, unit, reported interval, and press Execute.
Generated report will appear on the right. On the left you see tabs to navigate between report sections (tables and charts). Besides, the report can be exported to various formats or printed (for this, use the proper buttons - Export to File and Print).
