How to create and manage geofences
In this guide, we will show you how to create and manage geofences. You can use geofences to generate alerts based on events.
In your Vehicle Tracker application, go to the Geofence panel. If you don’t see the Geofence panel, go to Workspace and select the [default] view.
You can learn more about workspaces here.
To add a new geofence, click on + Circle button or select a type of geofence with the option and define a New Polygon or even route geofences selecting New Route.
You can draw the geofence directly on the map to the left of the screen, and at the same time, define a Name and a Description (optional) for our new geofence. Route geofences snap to roads and make planning accurate and easy - learn more here.
Add the new geofence into a Group by clicking on + Group.
Type a Group name and select Pin to Map if you want to see all geofences of that group on the screen at all times.
Click on Save when you're done.
Now your new geofence and group are created.
Edit a geofence
To make modifications on a geofence, right-click on the geofence name in the Geofence panel.
Now you can edit the geofence properties or even change it on the map.
Save the changes when done.
