MyGeotab 2004 release notes

MyGeotab release 2004 preview notes were published on October 23.  It seems like we just announced the updates for MyGeotab release 2003 and the 2004 release is already upon us.  Time flies! Here are just the highlights of what’s coming.

Much of what you will see below is only available in feature preview.  To select the feature preview option, follow the instructions at this link (click here).  Also, we thought it far too much to throw at you all at once, so we are sharing just our favorites.  To see it all, including updates to the SDK, just visit the Geotab Blog.

New MyGeotab UI Design

Much has been redesigned in the look and feel of the user interface.  The new and improved design focuses on drawing the eye to the important areas of the page.  It uses simple and clean colors and fonts.  The navigation icons have been redesigned to focus on the meaning behind each symbol.  Color is used to clearly indicate the currently selected item. Buttons and components have been updated to be more intuitive and to follow modern patterns.  The new design is ready to be used immediately with no re-training required.

Areas where you will see these design changes are the dashboard, vehicles page, users, zones, speed profile, trailers, groups, system settings, rules and rules edit, DVIR pages, customer visits, map and trips history, routes, help guide, custom reports, risk management, and engine measurements.  That’s almost everywhere!  Please let Geotab know what you think of the new changes by filling out this feedback survey.

Scheduled Reports

Do you prefer to receive a notification your scheduled report is available instead of an email attachment?  For customers who have security in mind, there is a new setting available. In System Settings > Privacy Settings, there is now an option that allows you to choose whether or not you want to receive your reports as email attachments.  You can choose between receiving an email with an attachment or just a notification with instructions on where to go in MyGeotab to download it.  There is also a new option in the upper right corner to select “My Reports”.

Area Activity Search in MyGeotab Release 2004

Have you ever needed to investigate what happened in a particular area over a specific period of time? Perhaps you got a call from someone saying one of your drivers did not pick up a load last Friday at 4pm? Now you can easily search on the map when this happens. Simply zoom in to the area, click the particular location, select Area Activity, and enter your date and time range. MyGeotab takes you to the Trips History page, where the exact vehicles that were in the area and trips that happened during that time are displayed. Please note that you may need to adjust your zoom level before the Area Activity feature becomes available.

Show Traffic settings

Many users leverage the Show Traffic setting on the live map to better manage their fleet. For ease of use, MyGeotab will now remember if you have turned this setting on the next time you log in.

Adding Vehicles without device serial numbers

You can now add vehicles into the system without a device serial number. Some of the use cases for this feature are:

  • If you know the vehicle you plan on installing a telematics device in, but don’t have the device yet, you can now add the vehicle into the system.  Have everything set up with the appropriate name, groups, license plate, and other information, then add the serial number when the device is received.
  • When you have assets that you want to do inspections against or set maintenance reminders for, but may not need a telematics device for, those assets can now be added to MyGeotab.

If you are interested in testing this feature, let us know as it is not available by default.  Please note that functionality is very limited without a telematics device.

Custom keys for drivers

Third-party keys for drivers can now be added as custom keys in MyGeotab. Simply open the Edit User page and add the key under the Driver tab, or add the key under the same tab when adding a new user.

“Select all” functionality now checks for applied filters

Previously, when using the “select all” functionality on relevant pages, such as Vehicles and Users, the system did not check for applied filters.  Finally, the change was made to apply any filters chosen on the page when performing bulk actions such as editing.

MyGeotab Release 2004 no need to know database name to reset password

Users no longer need to enter their database name as a part of the reset password process. Most end users were not aware of the database name, so it has been removed as a requirement and replaced by a CAPTCHA form to prevent misuse.

Percentage over speed limit

Some regions of the world assess speeding fines based upon a percentage over the speed limit. You can now choose how you want to monitor speeding based on a value or a percentage.
