Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

Hi everybody,
We added new interesting and useful features for testing. Please send us your feedback on them
1. When you click on unit on the map, the menu with buttons from "Monitoring" will appear
http://i.gyazo.com/4f6c6aee38842e1f04c31eef3ecc73ac.png
The following buttons are not shown: "watch unit on map" checkbox, address, visibility chechbox, additional drop-down menu with "open the menu" arrow, "remove from the list" button. But buttons "show track" and "execute report" are always shown, if these functions are available for the user
2. Units without recent fresh messages begin to fade from the map
http://i.gyazo.com/f8d648e44d1fc71326c80708ee5bd346.png
If the last message was received within 1 hour - the icon of the unit is as usual, clear and crisp
If  the last message was received within 24 hours - the icon has the 50% level of transparency
If the last message was received more than 24 hours ago - as shown on the picture above
3. Next to name of the group you will see the amount of units in it
http://i.gyazo.com/c05f7967abb47f704c7a5f1e2fa73d0b.png
4. Checkbox "Event registration" evolved to "Manage events" checkbox. When you activate this checkbox, the user will be able not only to register events, but also delete them

Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

Currently in messages mode if the other unit has been chosen, the calendar is not switched on the date of the unit's last message, but the interval chosen earlier remains.
Moreover, instead of “Map position at startup” setting the default “City” from the user’s “General settings” is used.

Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

The first update in 2015 has fixed some bugs and:
- if the object is included in the group and uses the icon of the group (even if the flag "rotate icon" is marked) it will not rotate;
- if in monitoring panel in column "Position" option "displaying geofences" is set, in case of information about geofences is absent, addresses will be displayed.

Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

Hi to everybody!

Today we had a small update of development branch with nice new features listed below.

Major one is a new Locator feature. Instead of old one, where you can only provide public access to all units that are visible to user we redesigned it with absolutelly different approach. The magic button is located in top-right user menu, near settings dialog. From there you now can create hundreds of links and each link have begin/end date and you can select as many units/geofences/POI to share as you can have. This new locator also make it possible to track selected units in real time.

Second option is extremely interesting for various developers to implement real-time connection from Wialon to their products. It is a new action for notification - perform HTTP request. Internally we are going to use it to implement realtime push-notifications for mobile client which is also coming very-very soon.

We also implemented custom fields for accounts in CMS Manager. This feature was requested through the forum thread. Now you can put various business-related information for account in Wialon.

At least, but not last is a new routing engine - SAR, that was in development for almost a year. Now we can calculate routes between several locations and are able to do it really fast. The engine is still in testing mode and avaible in one instance, e.g. without hot-reservation. Its application currently avaible in Routing under Tools menu and in few other places and apps, where till that moment only commercial routing services could be used. Territories where we provide routing services are: CIS, Europe, Australia and few Asia countries. Other countries are on the way, we will constantly update our routing maps database.

All these features scheduled for installation in main branch for next monday and I wish you nice work week!

Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

Dear Wialon Hosting users!

Directly after International Women's Day we are proud to announce, new update to development branch of Wialon Hosting. It is rather small, but smart and nifty.

First of all for "bad" firmware devices when, from some point, it starting to send total mileage counter less then it was before we introduced new checkbox With overflow in mileage sensor. This way we fixed this bug on "server-software side", but you may use it as well for normal, not buggy devices, especially in case when counter counting in millimeters or feets and really at some point of time it goes to overflow stage and starting to count mileage from zero.

Next new feature will be interesting for large telematic integrators, working with plently of customers and vehicles. It is the fast dynamic filter for resource in various dialogs when you need to select resource to which you are creating POI, report or whatever. And second is the fast unit filter, also in various dialogs where you need to select unit. Here filtering works by name, device type, creator, custom fields or by unit groups.

One of interesting applications of our new routing engine for Gurtam Maps is the tool Nearest units. Now the routing engine here is used not only to calculate the distance from units to selected point, but also driving time it will take.

Please enjoy and test new features in development branch and we plan to introduce all them into main master branch in the beginning of next week.

Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

Hy everybody!

In this warm spring day (at least so in Boston=) we are glad to announce first batch of new features targeted especially to You, and not to Your users. They all are avaible for testing in development branch of CMS Manager.

The most important is a trash, that contain all deleted items. Now you can restore them manually, not only through our support.

Also, very simple, but powerfull - sort feature on variety of columns is now avaible. On the second stage we plan to add more columns for sorting and implement various filtering (like blocked accounts, etc).

And of course you will immediatelly notice a small redesign of top menu part of CMS Manager, hope you will quickly adopt to it, cause it really very simple.

And yes, just as a side note, for all radio buttons and checkbox it is now possible to simple click on the text associated with them. This is especially usefull feature for our business users working from notebooks with touchpads.

Wish you very nice week!

Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

cool. If we than can have also "last location" or "last message" on unit configuration in CMS would be even more happy ;-)

Wialon hosting dev.thread

Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

Hi everybody!

During this perfect sunny day our development branch of Wialon Hosting received some nice new features listed below.

CMS Manager got extended version of filtering possibility for various types of objects. For example now it is possible to display only blocked accounts.

For integrators now it is possible to view and manage list of authorized applications for their users.

And yes, as Wolf, our valuable partner from Germany that did so much help to many users of this forum, asked us long ago now we did it - automatically switch to LBS (gsm cells based coordinates detection) when GPS satellites are not available. This is activated in Advanced tab of unit settings in the filtering section.
Works pretty simple - when there is no possibility for GPS chip to determine the position, but we know current connected GSM cell information, the system will store in the message coordinates of this cell tower. They won't influence any precise calculations like mileage and won't work in notifications, but users will be able to view the track on the map.
Also Wialon Hosting monitoring system will switch to coordinates from LBS automatically when GPS is lost by the unit, this is independently on setting above.

Going further with 3G/4G connectivity providers - now it is possible to stream video received from device in all places where is currently possible to view the pictures. Please e-mail us to hw@gurtam.com in order to receive list of currently supported device with video-recording features or to integrate this functionality into new/existing devices.

In sensor calculation table now it is possible to specify bounds not only for raw parameter values, but also to calculated one. For example, for fuel level sensor in the past you was able only to filter mV values sent by tracker and now you may also specify the volume of tank for filtering invalid sensor values.

All these new features will be available to all Wialon Hosting users at first day of next summer and now you may use development branch to play with them.

Wish you nice weather (like now in Minsk) whenever you are!

Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

Hi dear Wialon Hosting users!

Today, while Minsk is covered by very changing conditions with rain (+10C) and sun(+25C) at the same day, we thought that Tesla influenced too much on global ecology and decided to remove weather layer from Wialon Hosting. We also decided to release couple of new features in development branch with a hope to return spring in Minsk to a warm state at least before summer will come.

For developers of Wialon-compatible web-based applications in order to eliminate any delay in application load due to reference to any other external resources we recommend to use new callback parameter as Wialon-SDK load event.

+ show spoiler
<script type="text/javascript">
function oninit()
{
    alert(wialon.core.Session.getInstance());
}
</script>
<script src="https://hst-api.wialon.com/wsdk/script/wialon.js?callback=oninit" type="text/javascript"></script>

And we introduced few updates to locator page - now it make track not for a full period, but only for last 24 hours. And it now use the same technologies for requesting and rendering tracks as wialon mobile application - it means this function is really very fast, give it a try! And yes, now you can also use locator link directly from mobile phone - it will show current location of the phone as well.

Going further with CMS Manager we added few most interesting columns for users and accounts listings.

In the development till june 1st, we still have few more interesting features for CMS Manager - for example one feature is for visualization of accounts hierarchy for better accounts management. Also shifts support for information grouping in reports. And some more things requested on this forum.

Please stay with us and wish us warm spring at least in the last days of May,
till next monday!

Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

Hy everybody!

Today we had a last update of development branch before all the updates will be merged into production branch next monday, at first day of summer.
As usual most of the things are related to CMS Manager:
- accounts view now available in two modes: "Accounts" and "Resources" - both modes have own wide set of columns;
- for fast adding of days or money to the account balance it is now enough to click on corresponding column of selected account;
- new "Account" column for all types of table items;
- Last message column for units;
- special "Contents" report for account, avaible under the column with the same name. Now on large accounts it works rather slow, but we promise to optimize it in one of next updates;
- the possibility to change name of billing plan;

Nice feature for those who are using Wialon like communication hub to support hundreds of different types of devices in own software - now it is possible to retranslate configured sensors instead of raw parameters for protocols "Wialon Retranslator" and "Wialon IPS". Just configure LLS or ignition/mileage sensors in Wialon and receive real values in your software.

And once more we did some special optimizations for monitoring site. Now it should be more comfortable to work from accounts that have access to thousands of units - the load depends only on number of units in active set - monitoring panel.

So please test it and be ready for next monday to use it and couple of other new features on your production sites!

Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

Hi everybody!

Each week we released minor things in developer thread, but this monday is special. Open Drivers tab, put cursor over binded driver and read the popup. You'll see how many hours this driver is allowed to use in the car without the rest, what rules are in effect right now, how many hours of driving he has according to the law.

Data is visualized according to EATR rules and three sources of data are used: tachograph data (.ddd files), iButton or manual assignment.

This and set of other minor improvements we plan to put into production next monday - july, 27.

Have a nice week!

Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

In development branch we have removed width constraint on the left monitoring panel. From now on you can diminish it to zero. Moreover, it became possible to set link's lifetime in Locator in minutes.

Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

At the height of the summer season, we have added a possibility to restore resource contents (geofences, POI, notifications, etc.) in development branch.

25

Wialon hosting dev.thread

Re: Wialon hosting dev.thread

Hello everyone!

Yet another update had gone live in the Wialon service center. New features became available in development branch.

New 'All units' option in Locator will allow you to monitor literally all currently accessible units for a given user.  In other words, even if you create a new unit after Locator link with selected 'All units' option was generated, you would still see this new unit in the Locator window. Once a unit is deleted or relevant rights for it are withdrawn, the unit will disappear from the Locator window. Moreover, there is a possibility to choose a map source in advance. Information on the map source is added to the locator's URL.

When sending a report by e-mail you can now select among two additional PDF pade sizes, legal and letter.

We continue to work on groupings in reports. Folding and unfolding of data in a grouped report became more convenient - there is a row above the executed report with groupings' titles.
