Product Features and Updates – 11/14/2016

This Product Features and Updates announcement for GPS Insight Pro/Enterprise includes updates for Dashboards/Maps, Reports, Administration Functions, and Mobile.

Dashboards/Maps

HOS Availability Dashlet – Updated/New Columns

The Driver column in the HOS Availability Dashlet now includes the driver’s name instead of the driver’s ID. New columns for Vehicle and Gain Time At are also available.

The HOS Availability Dashlet is available only for accounts that are enabled for Hours of Service.

Reports

Driver-Vehicle Inspection Report – Updated Columns

The Driver-Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) lists the driver’s name instead of the driver’s ID within the Created, Repair Certified, and Approved columns.

The DVIR is available only for accounts that are enabled for Hours of Service.

Administration Functions

2G Update Notification

The AT&T 2G Sunset will be complete by the end of 2016. If your account includes vehicles that are affected by the shutdown and you have not yet begun the upgrade process, a notification* appears on the dashboard upon login. You can close this notification using the X in the alert window.

You will also see a notification* on the top of the Manage Vehicles page. Any affected devices will display in red with this icon: . This notification persists until all affected devices are deactivated.

*Only users with Vehicle Admin permission will see this notification.


Manage User Permissions – New Drivers Option

In the User Permission List, a new Drivers permission exists for allowing a user to see driver information in the portal.

When this permission is unchecked, the user is prevented from seeing driver names on maps, dashlets, alerts, reports, and related admin pages. Driver-related reports are also suppressed. Note that the new Drivers permission is different than the Driver Admin permission, which allows a user to edit driver names and contact info.


HOS Configuration – Trailer Filter

The eFleetSuite refers to all vehicles and trailers collectively as “assets.” When viewing eFleetSuite Assets on the HOS Integration Configuration page, you can now filter the list of assets (i.e., vehicles and trailers) to exclude the trailer asset types from the list.

The HOS Availability Dashlet is available only for accounts that are enabled for Hours of Service.
