The location report is your insight into the location of all assets associated with your account.
A benefit of this report is a visual map of all of your assets.
Use this report to track assets or to find an asset’s current or last phone home position on an interactive map. For specific help with the map and its features, see the Map Overview topic.
To access the Location report:
From the main menu, click Reports, then go to GPS Track & Trace and click Location.
|Select up to five assets that will have their locations displayed on the map. Use this filter if the asset being searched for is specific
|When a specific zone is selected in this filter, only assets that are within that zone will be displayed on the map.
|The options menu allows further filtering to better refine the search. These options must be configured prior to clicking Generate Report.
Only Show Units with Power On: Will only show assets with a power state of “On.”
Only Show Units with Power Off: Will only show assets with a power state of “Off.”
Auto-Update every: This option will refresh the map based on the searched criteria. The default is 30 seconds, but this can be customized up to every ten minutes.
Show Trails: When searching for specific assets with the “Last Location Controls,” this option will include the previous path of the asset for the specified duration. The default is the previous 30 minutes, but it is possible to change this to 60 or 120 minutes. If this option is grayed out, at least one specific asset must be selected in the “Last Location Controls.”
Save Zoom Setting: This option will keep the map at the same zoom level upon refresh. This option is only available when at least one specific asset is selected in the “Last Location Controls.”
Hide Pop-ups: When this option is selected, hovering over an asset’s icon on the map will no longer display the pop-up information window for that asset.
Show Zone Name (Slower): This option will populate the “Zone” column in the Location Results. This may cause a delay in the return of the results.
Show All: When this option is selected, the display count in the user’s settings will be ignored and all assets will be displayed on the map and in the Location Results.
Cluster Assets: This option is on by default and when unchecked, will remain that way for individual users. Clustering of assets helps clean up the returned report and will display multiple assets in a single location as a circle with total asset count inside. With this option on, zooming in on the map will begin to show assets further apart.
Note: Clustering does not occur on the two most zoomed in levels on the map.
Show ZTrak Units: Selecting this option will include all of the assets equipped with a ZTrak device.
