Customize your workspace

Workspace overview

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 positions and sizes.
  • Columns visible in list lists.
  • Sort order in lists.
  • Current View.

Default workspaces

By default, a newly created VT application comes with two different workspaces that you can select:

Manage Users

You can always go back to any of these two default workspace by selecting them in the menu Workspace

Manage Workspaces

In Manage Workspaces you can remove or select which workspaces you want to share with other users in the platform.

To access Manage Workspaces, select Workspace > Manage Workspaces

Workspace Settings 

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).
