Updates to Asset Inspection attestation
For Canadian Drivers, Asset Inspection attestations will be based on the vehicle’s license plate state/province information as the first criteria. If that is not available, then it will be based on other factors like the GPS location of the vehicle and the company address, in that order.
Added Asset Inspection checklists to MyGeotab
In the previous release, our Asset Inspection workflow was converted into a checklist-based view. In this release, we are making the functionality available for Asset Inspection logs created in MyGeotab.
Added interactive self-help
✱ NOTE: This feature is only available on the web version of the Drive App, and Drive App version 6.0 or newer.
We've added an interactive self-help feature for Drive App users. This feature allows users to view supporting videos for the Drive App and to search Geotab Knowledge Base articles while staying in the app. Throughout the app, users can press the self-help button to get contextualized help, or search for other content including guided workflows. These workflows guide users through a series of steps to help familiarize them with the app. This feature is still in its early stages and will be enhanced in future releases to make it more interactive.
Improved exception notifications
We have improved exception notifications for users. Previously, the Drive App supported sending notifications to drivers for any exceptions generated by them, however it was based on custom code. The new Events page lists any exceptions generated for the asset that is currently being used. Drivers can press individual events to expand them. This section can be accessed by pressing the bell icon on the top bar.
Below is the configuration page in MyGeotab where you can set notification rules and create custom text messages using the notification templates and tokens available:
SDK and Add-in updates
- Defect — Added IsHidden and IsRequired properties.
- IsHidden is a boolean value indicating whether a defect is hidden in the UI. Used to determine if “Other” should be shown or not.
- IsRequired is a boolean value indicating whether a defect must be signed off. Used to determine if the part must be explicitly marked as having defect(s) or not.
- UserHosRuleSetSearch — Fixed bug that returned the wrong date when searching for UserHosRuleSet using both fromDate and userSearch.fromDate parameters.
