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 positions and sizes.
- Columns visible in list lists.
- Sort order in lists.
- Current View.
By default, a newly created VT application comes with two different workspaces that you can select:
You can always go back to any of these two default workspace by selecting them in the menu Workspace
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
In Workspace Settings you can modify certain workspace parameters as Online status timeout, Marker Clustering, Marker Size, Smart Labels and Geofence Labels.
To access Workspace Settings, select Workspace > Workspace Settings

|Marker Size||allows defining the size of the markers on the map.|
|Smart Labels||Smart labels prevent label overlapping if several vehicles reside close to each other.|
