We recently added new custom categories and attributes to GPS Insight for any customer to add highly business specific data to their vehicles, drivers, users, landmarks, and hierarchy nodes.
There are some new ways to utilize this feature, as well as custom filtering coming soon to the 2D map screen. These filters will eventually support report, alerts, API’s, etc.
For instance, you will be able to click the new “attributes and categories” button on 2D mapping (shown below) and add HIGHLY CUSTOM filters for which vehicles are shown:
In this example, I am filtering on only vehicles which EITHER are Route Number less than or equal to #15 (e.g. 1-15) OR BOTH a Corporate Vehicle with BOTH a Compressor AND Winch:
Once I save that filter, only some of the vehicles remain, and when I choose one (Andrew PNP) I can tab to the “Custom” tab in 2D mapping and see how that vehicle matches our filter:
Since it was EITHER [any] (not both), the fact that the route #8 is less than/equal to 15 which causes this vehicle to be chosen, not the Specialized Equipment, since it doesn’t have a Winch in addition to the Compressor and Corporate ownership.
Note that there is a convenient “Edit: Attributes” link which takes me to the proper screen where I can add that winch, or something appropriate:
You just need to click the “green check” between “Specialized Equipment” and the vehicle icon at top to bring up the options available. Then edit the vehicle to include a Winch and next time you check, that data has changed:
I also went and changed the “Any” to “All” so now ALL 3 restrictions must be met. Now very few (5) vehicles are shown, as the filter is much more restrictive:
Some of these capabilities exist already, and some will be released shortly. Filters will eventually be something you can save, and use with reports and alerts. We’ll keep you posted on when these capabilities make it to GPS Insight.
