Notifications to be able to use Driver Custom Fields

Topic: Notifications to be able to use Driver Custom Fields

Great to see that this is now in the hosting version.

Is it possible for us to be able to produce notifications around the custom fields, for example I have added a field for a drivers dangerous goods license expiery and now i want to be notified when the licence is 30days away from expiery. Similar to what I can do in the service management module for units.

Re: Notifications to be able to use Driver Custom Fields

Custom fields (whether of units, unit groups, drivers, or trailers) do not fall under control of any type of notification. And right at the moment, it is not technically possible to implement this.

Notifications to be able to use Driver Custom Fields

Re: Notifications to be able to use Driver Custom Fields

Is it possible to implement a concept similar to what is happening in the service/maintenence capability? We are looking to put a lot of non mobile assets in the application and they will have a lot of custome fields that will hold information that we want to get alerts on.

Or, is it possible to have a hyperlink capability in a custom field and we can link out to a tracking application?

All alerts in Wialon are made through notifications - this module is designed specially for this purpose.
Custom fields, however, are made to present static information.

Thanks Alek, Is it possible to have this capability in a future version or is it possible to use the SDK to be able to develope the functionality ourselves?

Re: Notifications to be able to use Driver Custom Fields

You can use SDK to develop this additional functionality.
However, I'll translate your proposal into Russian, so that other customers could think about it and vote upon possibility to add this as basic Wialon features.

Итак, проблема следующая:
Предположим, в произвольные поля водителя внесен срок действия его лицензии на перевозку опасных грузов. Нам нужно получить предупреждение о том, что лицензия скоро истекает.

Вар. 1: Добавить в уведомления контроль произвольных полей (по крайней мере тех, значения которых представляют собой время) и срабатывать при достижении критической временной отметки.

Вар. 2: Добавить в водителей (прицепы) функционал, похожий на "Техобслуживание" у объектов, и, опять-таки, прикрутить его к уведомлениям.

This was one of our first options and it will work if there are not a lot of items to put against the drives or not many drivers. We created a unit called Driver Alerts but it became a problem to manage.
We have hundreds of drivers and all of them have certifications that we need to track from an expiery point of view.
