Custom location names and job references

Adding your own custom address location names is an easy task. Once added these names then replace the street addresses on your Quartix reporting and Live Tracking, making it easy to identify sites that you visit regularly.

There are a few different ways in which a single customised location can be added on online and in order to do this you will need be logged in with administration access. You can add your locations either by postcode or if your vehicle has visited the location/point of interest before you can add these via your Daily Vehicle Log online.

Adding your customised location by postcode/address in Live Tracking

Select 'Live Tracking' from your main menu and enter postcode or address in the 'Nearest to..' box shown at the top of the page.

Once you start typing your location postcode or address the system will be working hard to locate this and once found will highlight the location with a yellow dot.
Note - If you currently have vehicles in or around this location you may have to zoom in on the map to see this.

To progress, click on the yellow dot. The map will zoom in closer for a more detailed reference on the location centre point along with a default radius zone of 100 meters (Image below).

At the top of the page are your location details which can all be edited as you wish. The main area to update will be the 'Location' field. The name you enter in here will be the name which the location will be saved as. The expiry date is for reference only and will not result in the location being deleted on any input date.

You can free type the radius field as you wish by typing over the default 100 meter entry. When you click off the field the radius image will amend accordingly. Alternatively, you can click and drag the location circle and also the location centre pin should you need to move this from its initial pin drop.

Adding your customised location via your Daily vehicle logs

This method bases your location on an event recorded by your vehicles visit to them. This could be an ignition on/off or stopped with ignition on event, if this shows on your log you can customise it. Adding locations in this way can be a lot more precise than adding them by postcode.

To get you started select 'Daily Vehicle Logs' from your Quartix menu and select a vehicle and date to bring up the log activity (image below).

To add a location click on the address listed. You will then be taken to a map which will highlight where the event was recorded with a red pin and the radius of 100 meters shown in a customisable red circle.

At the top of the page are your location details which can all be edited as you wish. The main area to update will be the 'Location' field. The name you enter in here will be the name which the location will be saved as. The expiry date is for reference only and will not result in the location being deleted on any input date.

You can free type the radius field as you wish by typing over the default 100 meter entry. When you click off the field the radius image will amend accordingly. Alternatively, you can click and drag the location circle and also the location centre pin should you need to move this from its initial pin drop.

Once you have completed the above fields select 'Update'. Your location has now been added and will show online from the vehicles next visits. Note: This will not backdate on previous visits.

Adding your customised location via your Custom locations option (Configuration)

Adding locations via this option is often reserved for uploading locations in bulk, however you can also add single locations from here. When you first select 'Custom locations' from the configuration menu you will be shown a full list of locations previously saved. To add a single location click on the + symbol shown on the grey bar

This will provide a blank canvas for you to locate and customise your location of interest as you wish.

To save any changes click the 'Update' button or to return to the main menu click the 'Cancel' button.
