An iOn schedule is a plan of the specific days of the week and hours of those days designated for an entity's use. For drivers and assets, an applied schedule would be the time you expect them to be driving/in operation. If a schedule is assigned to an alert, the notification will be triggered only during the apportioned hours — for example, you can create a schedule from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and associate it with an excessive idling alert if you want to be notified about overidling only during the workday. (Also, you can select for an alert to be triggered any time outside the applied scheduled, such as if you want to be notified if a driver is using a vehicle beyond their approved work hours. See Adding an Unauthorized Usage Notification for details.)


To view the schedules you or another iOn admin in your organization has created, follow these steps:


  1. In the sidebar menu on the left, click .
     
  2. Click Schedules on the flyout menu that appears.
     
    The Admin - Schedules screen will appear.
      
    By default, your schedules are listed by name in ascending order (from A to Z for words, or from lowest to highest for numbers).
     
  3. If you want to see schedules in subgroups of the one you have selected in the Group Chooser, make sure that View Subgroups is toggled on at the bottom of the screen.
     
  4. You can scroll down the grid to see all the schedules you have available to assign to your alerts, assets, and drivers.
     
  5. To find a particular schedule, you can sort or filter the Name column, as shown in Sorting and Filtering Column Data.
     
  6. You can export the grid data to a CSV (comma-separated value) file by clicking  at the top right.
     
  7. You can add or remove columns by clicking at the top right of the grid and following the steps in Customizing Displayed Columns.
     
  8. If you don't have iOn save grid modifications you make automatically for all the iOn screens (if the Automatically Save Grid Settings toggle in the Preferences area of My Profile is deselected — see Viewing Your Profile and Setting Your Preferences), you can save any layout changes you've made to the Admin - Schedules screen by clicking . (If you haven't made any layout updates you can save,  will be above the grid instead.) See Saving Grid Changes for an Individual Screen for more details.
     
    Here is an explanation of the column headers:
     
    • Group: The name of the fleet group the schedule belongs to.
       
    • Name: The schedule identifier, which should be a simple name for its time span, such as "Weekdays, 9 to 5."
       
    • Description: An explanation of the time range the schedule covers, such as "Weekday work hours only - 9 a.m. to 5 p.m."
       
    • Schedule Times: The days of the week and times the schedule includes.
       
    • Inheritable: Whether the schedule can also be applied to entities in subgroups of the group it is assigned to (so the subgroups, or child groups, can inherit the schedule from the parent group).
       
    • Status: The schedule's current state in the database, such as Enabled.
      Note: If a schedule is set to Disabled or Suspended, you won't be able to associate it with an entity.
  9. Just below the grid are icons that enable you to navigate through the pages of data, if needed. See Paging Options for an explanation of these.
