We give customers the ability to create and populate their own custom attributes and categories for vehicles and other GPS Insight objects. Now you can add them to your GPS tracking reports!
First you have to create and assign attributes and values to vehicles like this:
(this is just a test but you get the idea!)
Then you can add that and other custom attributes to your report definition:
Just choose each attribute you want, in the order in which you want them to appear in the report. If you decide to remove one, just check the “remove X” next to it.
Note there is a new extra “bonus” option of “show current location” which allows you to add the vehicle’s CURRENT location to most reports where it was typically left off (e.g. monthly utilization reports like this one). It is highlighted above, and I check it before running this report, but it’s off by default, as shown.
Now your GPS tracking report will contain YOUR custom data, as shown below:
Note that you can now see Compressor Type, Bed_length, and Order Number (all just for illustration purposes) on the report as well as on the maps in the custom tab (below):
We also support this in our 3D Google Earth-based maps (with a scrollable window so that you can fit everything in a single “bubble”):
We need to complete the addition of these to our scheduled reports mechanism, but that will be available soon.
Eventually we will allow you to also SORT, FILTER, and GROUP BY by these custom attributes, but for now, much of that is possible just by utilizing the Excel/CSV export of the report.
Please get with our Support staff if you need any training or further information on these powerful GPS tracking capabilities.
