Tracks 2.0 (Beta) Overview

Note: with the August 2021 release, Tracks 2.0 (Beta) will be the default experience and be named Tracks. The legacy Tracks will be available as Tracks (Legacy) in the UI. If you've updated your beta server, you will already see this name change.

The Tracks 2.0 (Beta) panel lets you see and interact with historical fleet data. It is comprised of the Trips page, the Track Points page, and the Timeline page. Historical data is also displayed on the map. The data you select is used for all three pages. Read on to learn how to select your data and how the map works. Then click through to learn about each Tracks page.

Using Tracks

You control the data you see on all Tracks pages by picking the vehicles, the date range, and the event rules that are relevant.

Vehicles: Use the searchable multi-select field inside the panel. You can also use the dropdown to scroll and select a vehicle.

Trips are cropped according to your selected dates/times.

Note: You only update the track data in your current time span when using the refresh button. If you want to get all data up until the latest track point, set your end time to a later time today.

Exporting data: Export data from Tracks by clicking on the Tracks panel menu and selecting Export.
