New Features

New Driver Vehicle History Report

We added a new Exception report — Driver Vehicle History, which provides a historical record of the assets operators were assigned to, including the date and time the association occurred.

New Invalid Keyfob Report

We added a second new Exception report — Invalid Keyfob, which provides a historical record of operators/assets that have used unregistered key fobs (ones that haven’t been assigned to operators), including the dates and times the fob swipes occurred and the key fob ID numbers.

Admin Articles Added to the iOn Knowledge Base

For iOn users with administrator rights, we’ve added a new folder of Knowledge Base (KB) articles covering the Admin flyout menu’s options, which you can access here.


Opening Drill-Down Reports on a New Tab

Some reports provide links that drill down to a more specific report — for example, if you click an asset name in the results of the Asset Summary View report, the Asset Detail View report for that particular asset will be displayed.

Previously, when you clicked a drill-down link, it would open the child report on the same tab (replacing the parent report’s results). Now, the child report will be displayed on a new tab, leaving the parent report open on the original tab.

Basing Geofence Alerts on Just Entered or Exited Events

Previously, if you created an alert using the iOn Geofence Event v2 alert type, you could specify the landmark name as the trigger (plus the landmark category and some asset options), which activated the alert whenever an included asset entered and exited the landmark’s geofence. Now, you can specify that the alert be sent just for Entered events, just for Exited events, or for both using a new Geo Event Type trigger.

Specifying Landmark Types for Both Entered and Exited Events

When creating or editing a landmark, you specify a type based on what the landmark is supposed to monitor, in terms of arrivals and departures. Previously, you had Enter, Exit, Both, and None (Landmark Only) options; now the first three of these have been combined to one option — Both (Enter & Exit), so landmarks will now either report both Entered and Exited geofence events or no events at all.

Choosing Geofence Alert Landmark Categories from a Drop-Down List

One of the optional triggers for an alert using the iOn Geofence Event v2 alert type is Geo Landmark Category, which enables you to specify a landmark category (such as Work Site) to set off the alert. Previously, this was a text field, requiring you to type in the category name. Now, the Geo Landmark Category option is a drop-down list, enabling you to choose from the landmark categories available to the group you assigned the alert to.

Duplicating Schedules

We added the ability for admin users to create a new schedule by copying an existing one, which will make the process quicker and easier. When you copy a schedule, its current day time frame configurations will be carried over, and you can make time adjustments and add or remove configurations as needed.

Triggering Alerts Outside a Schedule’s Time Frame

Previously, when you applied a schedule to an alert, the alert was sent out only during that time frame; for example, if the alert was designed to notify you about excessive idling and you applied a schedule with a time range of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the alert would be triggered only during those work hours. Now, we’ve added the ability to set off the alert for the exact OPPOSITE time period, if needed, using a new Schedule Reference drop-down list in the Add/Edit Alert dialog box. If you specify Inside Schedule using this drop-down list, the alert will be sent only during the schedule’s specified time range; if you choose Outside Schedule, the alert will be sent the rest of the time (after 5 p.m. in the evening, through the night, and up until 9 a.m., in the excessive idling alert example).
