Actions menu

The actions menu is a quick way to see a range of useful functionalities for each of your vehicles or assets. There are three ways to access the menu:

  • Use the three-dot icon found beside each vehicle or powered asset (PA) in the Vehicle Status list.
  • Right-click on the status icon of any vehicle (or driver or asset) on the Live Map.
  • Right-click your mouse anywhere on the Live Map. This option does not give you vehicle specific options such as Vehicle Name, Vehicle Options, Roadside Assistance (if available), Replay or Reports, but can allow access to certain add-on features, such as Send location to Garmin or Open Driver Dispatch.

The menu for vehicles and powered assets includes:

  • Vehicle Name - only when you have accessed the menu from the vehicle or PA.
  • Find Nearest - find the nearest vehicle to a certain location.
  • View Replay - view a replay of the vehicle or PA's movements.
  • Run Daily Report - load a daily report for the vehicle or PA.
  • Run Detailed Report - load a detailed report for the vehicle or PA.
  • Zoom to - refresh the map to show a zoomed-in view of the vehicle location and an information balloon.
  • Street View - if available, this will open a Google street view of the location. This is not a live view of the street at that time.
  • Create a geofence here - Create a 'Place' or a point of interest, on the map.
  • Remove from Live Map - removes this vehicle, driver of PA from the Live Map. This is the same as de-selecting them from the Vehicle Selection tab.
