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 of positions and sizes

- Columns visible in list lists

- Sort order in lists

- Current view

Default workspaces

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

Default

Manage Users
Manage_users_default_workspace_5-2019_x_700px.png

You can always go back to one of these two default workspaces from the Window 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).

You can customize your workspace using the options in the sections below.
