Using the Tracking screen's History layer, you can view recent asset activity and watch live updates. Each asset's path will be color-coded to differentiate it from other assets you are monitoring. You can view the activity for up to 40 assets, with a maximum of a 24-hour period.

Note: To see how to view recent and live input events based on your IO profiles (such as Plow Down), go to Mapping Recent and Live Input Activity Using the History Layer.

To view recent driving activity and monitor it live, follow these steps:

  1. On the sidebar menu on the left, click .
    The Tracking screen will appear and display the assets of the group you have selected in the Group Chooser.
  2. If you would like to track a different group (or groups), an individual asset, or just a few assets, follow these steps:
    Caution: You'll need to select 40 or fewer assets (the maximum number the History layer can display), whether it's whole groups or individual vehicles.
    Note: To reduce the number of assets, you also can apply filters. If you want to do just that (keeping your current group/asset selection), skip to step 3.
    1. Click the Groups/Assets drop-down arrow at the top of the screen.
      Your selected group will be displayed (City of Meryton in the example in the following figure). It should be automatically expanded to show its subgroups. (If not, an expansion arrow will appear to the left of its name.)
      Note: If you want to view a group above this group, you'll need to change the group you have chosen in the Group Chooser, as shown in Choosing a Group to View Globally. If you want to view a group that is above your assigned group in your account hierarchy, you'll need to obtain different permissions from your organization's software administrator.
    2. If the group or asset you need to track is a subgroup or in a subgroup, click the expansion arrow of its parent group ().
      If you want to track assets in one or more of their subgroups, click  to the left of the higher-level group's name — and keep doing so down the hierarchy until you reach the groups you want.
    3. To track entire groups, select the groups' check boxes. ( means selected, and  deselected.)
      To track individual assets, click the More Options () icon under the group they belong to.
      The group's assets will be displayed.
      Then select each asset's check box.
      Note: You can choose single assets under different groups as well.
      Another method of tracking just one asset is to perform a search for it by typing part of its name in the Search field at the top left of the screen and selecting it from the matching entities that will appear in a drop-down list.
    4. Click Done.
    5. If you need to filter the results by other entities (such as type or category), perform step 3.
      Note: If you do not need the filters, you can hide them by clicking at the top of the screen. (To restore them to view, click .)
      If not, skip down to step 4.
  3. If you would like to view the recent activity of certain assets you filter for, click the filter drop-down arrow at the top of the screen, select the needed entities, and click Done. (For example, you could click the Asset Status drop-down arrow and then select Moving.) See Saving an Asset or Geofence View as a Filter for more details.
    Note: Alternatively, you can apply a saved filter, as shown in Viewing Assets or Geofences Saved as a Filter.
    Caution: Again, make sure that the filter results in 40 or fewer tracked assets (the maximum number the History layer can show).
  4. In the vertical toolbar at the top right of the map, click the Map Layers icon ().
    The Map Layers widget will appear.
  5. Turn on the History layer by clicking its selector. ( means selected, and  deselected.)
  6. Click its expansion arrow.
    The History layer options will appear.
  7. If it's not already chosen, select View by Asset. 
    A key explaining what the map icons represent will be displayed (such as  for an Ignition On event).
  8. Select the numeric value in the View Activity from Past X Hrs field and type the number of hours in the recent past for which you'd like to see asset activity.
    Caution: You can choose a maximum of 24 hours.
    Path lines will be displayed on the map to show where your selected assets traveled. Each asset's path will have its own color. The arrows along the paths show which direction the asset was traveling.
    Caution: You might have to wait a few seconds for the paths to appear on the map.
    Asset activity will be updated in real time, with the map data being refreshed every 60 seconds.
    The events that occurred over the specified time frame will appear along the path, with the icons listed in the History layer key.
  9. You can click an event icon on the map to see a pop-up with detailed information about it, including the asset name, driver (if available), location, and when the event occurred.
  10. If you select a single asset by clicking its icon on the map, the map will pan and zoom in on it and its path line, and the paths and markers of other assets will be hidden.
  11. To move the visible area of the map, you can click and drag.
  12. You can zoom in by clicking on the vertical toolbar at the bottom right and zoom out using .
