You will now find a new horizontal menu bar at the top of every report; these replace the vertical options that were previously stacked on the right-hand side and free up valuable screen space.
You can still print the current screen, go back to the previous screen, and return to the main menu from here. As before, ‘export’ and ‘schedule’ options are available for certain reports.
This update brings you a new and improved live tracking screen. To make your Quartix system even easier to navigate, we have updated the live tracking menu layout and added functions that were previously only available from the configuration menu.
This new set up allows you to do all of the following without leaving live tracking:
- Move your list of vehicles from under the map to the right of the map (previously available only in My user preferences) or hide the vehicle list entirely
- Expand the map to fill the entire screen, removing the header to create space
- Show your custom locations directly from the map (previously a toggle on the live tracking menu screen)
- Select which vehicles are displayed on the map using the new drop-down menu
- Search for the nearest vehicles to an address or zip code
- Filter the vehicle list by any word, number set or status - for example names, registration numbers or stationary vehicles
- Turn the traffic information on and off
You can also control the layout of your live tracking screen by dragging the divider between the vehicle list and the map to the left or right, or up and down. Your chosen layout or any other settings changes will be remembered when you come back to the live tracking feature after navigating to other areas of the system.
This update is part of our on-going effort to give you more control over your Quartix system. All users can now define their own personal live tracking settings. For example, if you set your tracking map to display custom locations, that setting will become your default display until you change it.
Currently, these new, customisable user settings are only available on the live tracking screen but will expand to other reports in the future.
With this update, you can create groups of vehicles and drivers as well as edit them.
Viewing a group
- Select ‘Groups’ from the Configuration menu to see all the groups you have previously created
- The columns show how many vehicles are in each group or how many drivers, as well as whether a daily log report has been set up for the group
- To reveal more details, select the check box next to a listing
Creating a new group
Next to the Search bar in the top right of your screen, you’ll see a plus sign; clicking this creates a new, empty group. To add vehicles/drivers to your group, select them from the full list of vehicles on the right. Your new group is displayed on the left; simply click on the vehicle/driver again to remove them. You can also search for vehicles within each list using the search bar at the bottom.
Below your group details is the daily log setting. To set up this report, select the checkbox to reveal the options and choose the run time and due date, as well as the email addresses to which it should be sent and which language (English or Spanish) you want the report in. You can set these reports to run on any day of the week, including Saturdays and Sundays.
From the Group list, you can also view the details of each group (read-only), edit the group, or copy the group.
To edit a group of vehicles or all vehicles, select the relevant groups and click the edit button. This is next to the plus sign that creates a new group. Your selected groups will be listed. Underneath the groups are a choice of settings that you can establish for them. Please note that the changes you make here will rewrite any previous settings for those groups.
New:Location route chart
Now you can view route maps for specific times in a day and for specific areas with the new location route chart.
Set the location route chart to look at groups of vehicles or all vehicles, selecting the exact time period you are interested in, on a single day or multiple days. By entering a location and a radius, you can see clearly on the map which vehicles crossed into that area during that time period.
The routes shown here are made up of dozens of data points; you can click on these for more information, or to go the detailed route map for that vehicle.
In the case of insurance liability claims, for example, the location route chart can be invaluable – an easy way to see which vehicles were in a specific area at an exact time!
