Tracks: Timeline

Note: Tracks is the default experience for users (previously Tracks 2.0 (Beta) in the UI). You can select Tracks (Legacy) from the Tracks panel menu.

The Tracks Timeline is an interactive timeline with vehicle status, events, and the ability to view historical positions on the map. Read an overview of Tracks and selecting your data.

The timeline shows the status changes for each vehicle. You can hover over a vehicle timeline to see details. Historical events (including closed, open, and ongoing events) also display on the timeline for the event rules selected.

The timeline can be also used with Track Replay feature.

FAQ

How can I change the time/date format shown in Tracks? Tracks follows the server/application localization settings.

Which track data is included when I use the refresh button? 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.
