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. In 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 the recent history of assets in a different group (or groups), follow these steps:
    Note: Skip to step 3 if you want to use a filter instead. Go to step 4 to view a single asset.
     
    Caution: Make sure that you select a group with 40 or fewer assets (the maximum number the History layer can display).
    1. Click the Groups drop-down arrow at the top of the screen.
       
      Your selected group will be displayed. If it has any subgroups, an expansion arrow will appear to the right 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 iOn administrator.
       
    2. If one of the groups you need is a subgroup of the main group, click the expansion arrow ().
        
      If you want to see the recent activity of one or more of their subgroups, click  to the right of the higher-level group's name — and keep doing so down the hierarchy until you reach the groups you want.
       
    3. Select the groups' check boxes. ( means selected, and  deselected.)
        
    4. Click Done.
       
    5. Skip to step 5.
       
  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.
     
    Then skip down to step 5.
    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. To view the recent history of a single asset, follow these steps:
    Caution: This will work only if the group you have selected in the Group Chooser has 40 or fewer assets; if it has more, you will get the error ". . . Please reduce the number of assets" (despite the fact that you have searched for an individual asset).
    1. In the Search field at the top left of the screen, type the asset's name.
       
      Matching entities will appear in a list.
        
    2. Click the name of the asset you need.
        
  5. In the vertical toolbar at the top right of the map, click the Map Layers icon ().
      
    The Map Layers widget will appear.
         
  6. Turn on the History layer by clicking its selector. ( means selected, and  deselected.)
     
  7. Click its expansion arrow.
      
    The History layer options will appear.
     
  8. 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).
    Note: Most of these events are self-explanatory, but you might wonder what "Exception" refers to. This can be speeding or any of the harsh events (harsh braking, harsh acceleration, or harsh turning). Each event's pop-up will spell out which particular exception occurred.
  9. 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.
    Pathlines 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 minute or so 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.
     
  10. You can move your cursor over 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.
      
  11. If you select a single asset by clicking its icon on the map, the map will pan and zoom in on it and its pathline, and the paths and markers of other assets will be hidden.
      
  12. To move the visible area of the map, you can click and drag.
     
  13. You can zoom in by clicking on the vertical toolbar at the bottom right and zoom out using .
