Customize your workspace
A Workspace is a specific layout of the VehicleTracker user interface. You can have multiple Workspaces with different layouts for different tasks.
A Workspace keeps track of the following information:
- A list of positions and sizes
- Columns visible in lists
- Sort order in lists
- Current view
By default, a newly created Vehicle Tracker application comes with two different workspaces that you can select:
You can always go back to one of these two default workspaces from the Window menu > Workspace.
In Manage Workspaces you can remove or select which workspaces you want to share with other users in the platform. You can also delete workspaces.
To access Manage Workspaces, select Workspace > Manage Workspaces
In Workspace Settings, you can modify the Online status timeout. This parameter defines when a device is considering offline (when not reporting after xx seconds). By default this value is set to 600 seconds (10 minutes).
