Unit List Management

Unit work list affects the tracking process in many ways. It is not only about what you can see on the list and display on the map but also how you manipulate units on other panels when creating jobs, notifications, routes, querying messages, reports, and tracks, assigning drivers, looking for nearest units, etc.

Sorting Items

For your convenience, the items on the list are sorted by name. They can be sorted in direct alphabetical order or in reverse order. To change the order, use the switch button or .

Besides, it is possible to sort the items on the list by other attributes like motion state, connection quality, etc. To do this, push the appropriate button in the head of the table. Possible filters:

  • motion state,
  • last message time,
  • commands availability,
  • online connection state,
  • sensor state availability,
  • fast track availability,
  • pictures from messages availability,
  • possibility to edit unit properties,
  • driver information availability.

For instance, to sort units by state, press the button . Then at the top of the list there will be moving units, and at the bottom - staying, or vice versa if you press this button twice.

Available columns are defined in User Settings => Monitoring Panel.

It is not obligatory to display all available units on the working list. Units can be easily added to and removed from the list. Sometimes it is more convenient to work with a certain group of units and have it on the screen.

To add a unit or several units to the list, push the asterisk button at the head of the table and set search parameters.

Select the criterion of search (Search by dropdown list): by name, creator, phone number, unique ID, device type, access for user, geofences, unit groups, sensor, custom field, driver.

Then formulate your inquiry in the Filter field. For example, to find all MANs, select search by name, and in the template field type *man*. All units which names contain the combination of characters man (both at the beginning and at the end of the name) will be found and displayed immediately. If you leave the search field empty, all units possessing the selected property (sensors, ID, etc.) will be displayed.

If doing a search by sensor, not only sensor name can be entered in the template field, but also a part of its description, parameter type or parameter name.

The most of search parameters (except geofences and drivers) are taken and can be viewed and changed in Unit Properties.

If you need to add all units from a unit group, select a search by unit group, and in the template field enter the group name (or a part of the name).

After the first search is complete, another search can be done on the second level: a search among the first search results. To do this, push Add to the search list . The principals of inquiry formulation remain the same.

Add Units to the List

  • To display all available units on the work list, use Add all available button. Note that the option is disabled if dynamic work list is used.
  • To add search result to the working list, press the green plus-shaped button. The found units will be added to the list.
  • To replace existing working list with search results, press the tick-shaped button.
  • To add a single unit form search results to the monitoring list, double-click on the needed unit.

Deleting Units from the List

  • A button against each unit to delete this single unit from the list.
  • A button at the head of the list to clear the work list (remove all units).

Note that units are deleted from the list and not from the system. They can be added back at any time using the ways described above. To delete a unit from the system, go to the Units panel.

Dynamic Work List

The work list in the Monitoring panel can be formed dynamically according to the time when the last message from a unit was received. Units are removed and added to the list and map automatically. The work list updated each 10 seconds.

The function can be enabled in user settings on the Monitoring Panel tab. Change Without filtration option to Monitoring panel or Panel + Map and specify filtration interval in minutes. The filtration can affect only the work list in the monitoring panel or both the work list and the map.

:!: Attention!
With this mode enabled, some other functionality becomes not available or operates in different way:

  1. Manipulations with the work list (such as search, addition and removal of units) are impossible.
  2. Unit lists displayed when creating jobs, notifications and routes, querying messages, reports and tracks will contain not units from the work list as usual but all available units.
  3. However, Nearest Units tool operates with the work list dynamically updated in the Monitoring panel.
  4. The filtration by last message time does not affect the work list if the mode of unit group monitoring is selected.
