Access other asset related information

You can also obtain other asset tracking related information from the Dashboard application, including:


View geofence information

A geofence is a virtual region created on a map to represent an actual geographic area. Geofences are used to define areas for which certain types of asset tracking data need to be collected, for example, a distribution center where cargo is loaded and unloaded.

  1. Open the Geofences view to see the list of geofences.
  2. Click on any geofence. This opens the geofence view and locates the geofence on the map.
    • On the map, you can double click the geofence to zoom in.
    • On the geofence view, you can see
      • Which asset reports are included in this geofence (the "Include..." checkboxes)
      • What alerts are set for each asset type

Note: Only an administrator can modify geofences and their settings.


Search for a geofence

You can search for any geofence using the geofence name.

  1. Open the Geofences view.
  2. In the Geofence Search field, start typing the name of the geofence. A filtered list that matches the search field will appear in the view.
  3. Click the geofence you are looking for. This opens the view of that geofence and also locates the geofence on the map.

Subscribe to alert notifications

When an asset detects an alert condition, an alert message is sent to its registered users through email. You can subscribe to receive alert notifications.

The conditions that trigger alert notifications are set in each asset type, but can also be overridden in individual assets or geofences. For more information about alerts, see Events and alerts.
