How to view and edit Places

Places tab

In the Places tab, you can view and edit Places you have previously created, correct Geofences, and view Suggested Geofences.

  • Places: By default, the list displays all Places that you have created or categorised in your account, and suggested places.
  • Geofences to Correct: These are Geofences that you have created, but are not capturing any vehicle activity as vehicles are staying outside the Geofence.
    You can edit the Geofence to improve reporting. On the map, red dots show where vehicles are parking.
    You can expand the perimeter to include these areas and improve reporting.
  • New Suggested Geofences: This list displays Suggested Geofences from the previous Sunday and is updated weekly.
    Suggested Geofences are locations that Reveal has identified as frequently visited by your vehicles.
    These Places appear as Geofences (highlighted in red text), Alert options, and Live Map.
    Suggested Geofences stay in the list until you accept or delete them. Once you accept, edit, or save a Suggested Geofence, it is removed from the list of Suggested Geofences.
    Note: Click any of the boxes above to filter the list by that category.
  • Would you like to search for a place?: Click the link to reveal the search field. To search, type the name of the Place or the Place ID (not the address) and press Enter.
