This article covers the various features of the iOn site, https://connect.calamp.com/ion.


The default startup screen is Tracking, and it displays your assigned group's assets on the map.


Note: In iOn, we use the term asset for the equipment you are tracking; generally speaking, this will mean vehicle, but it also could be farm equipment, cargo containers — anything of value to you that could be in motion and therefore trackable.



Note: See Navigating the Tracking Screen for information about this screen.



Note: For details on how to change what iOn screen loads when you first launch the site, see Viewing Your Profile and Setting Your Preferences.


The Site Banner


At the top of the site, you will see the banner, which contains the following:



  • (menu icon): Click this to expand the accordion menu, iOn's primary method of site navigation. (See the section "The Accordion Menu," later in this article.)
     
  • : This is simply the site name.
     
  • Screen name: The title of the screen you are currently on appears to the right of the site name (such as Tracking in the preceding figure).
     
  •  (Alerts): Click this to open a drop-down widget that lists any unacknowledged alerts you have. (See Viewing and Acknowledging Your Alerts for details.) The count of unacknowledged alerts appears to the top right of the bell. If there is no number, all your alerts have been acknowledged.
     
  •  (Geofence Events): Click this to open a drop-down widget of unacknowledged geofence events (when your assets enter and exit your designated landmarks). (See Viewing and Acknowledging Your Geofence Events for details.) At the top right of the hazard icon is the number of unacknowledged geofence events. If there is no value, all your geofence events have been acknowledged.
     
  •  (Group Chooser/group name): This displays the name of the group whose assets you are currently viewing. Click either the icon or group name to change the group each screen you access will view first. (See Choosing a Group to View Globally for details.)
     
  •  (profile icon/username): This displays the username you use to log in to iOn. Click the text of your username (not the profile icon) to view your user settings and change your preferences. (See Viewing Your Profile and Setting Your Preferences for details.)
     
  • (overflow menu icon): You click this to open an overflow menu with options to view your preferences, read the Cal/Amp About page, link to the help documentation (that this article is a part of), and log out.


The Accordion Menu


When you click  at the top left of the screen, the accordion menu appears.



These are the options on the menu (depending on what modules your organization has):


  • Dashboard: Dashboards provide key information about your fleet's overall performance in an at-a-glance view. All customers will have the Asset Utilization dashboard, which contains charts displaying information about how your assets have been used over the course of the selected reporting interval. If your organization has the iOn add-ons of Crashboxx and Driver Scorecard, you'll also have dashboards for those, which, respectively, display Crashboxx accident analysis data and driver score data such as overall fleet scores, driver rankings, and risk distribution.
     
  •  Tracking: The Tracking screen enables you to locate and track your fleet assets and to map a history of their reported GPS events.
     
  •  Alerts: The Alerts screen lists the alerts your organization has received and enables you to acknowledge them. You create and configure your alerts on the Admin - Alerts screen (see Navigating the Admin - Alerts Screen and Adding an Alert).
       
  •  Geofence Events: The Geofence Events screen lists all your geofence events (when your assets entered and exited your landmarks) and enables you to acknowledge them. You create your landmarks and draw their geofences on the Admin - Landmarks/Geofences screen, or in Tracking (see Navigating the Admin - Landmarks/Geofences Screen and Adding a Landmark).
      
  •  Reports: iOn's reports can provide you with all kinds of information about your fleet, including the total miles your vehicles have driven, idling details, engine hours, stop data, when assets have entered and exited your geofences, fault codes, fuel efficiency, and operator performance.
      
  • MaintenanceThe Maintenance screen has two tabs: Dashboard, which lists the assets that are due and almost due for service, and Service, which displays upcoming services scheduled for a selected asset and when services were performed on it in the past. You add the required services and schedules for them in Admin - Maintenance (see Navigating the Admin - Maintenance Service Schedules Screen, Adding a Service Schedule, Navigating the Admin - Maintenance Service Items Screen, and Adding a Service Item).
       
  •  Admin: The Admin menu contains many utilities your system administrator will use, including options for managing your fleet’s assets, operators, routes, users, roles, groups, alerts, maintenance schedules, and landmarks.
