Testing: Overall modification of the monitoring panel

Topic: Testing: Overall modification of the monitoring panel

Here it comes – Gurtam started implement changes in Wialon system. After redesigning icons and rearranging fuel settings we felt ready to overall modification of the monitoring panel in Wialon beta version.

So let’s see what you get:

...and speak about it in more details.

Text contents under a unit name
So what you get with optimized text display in the monitoring panel? More free space to work with reports and elements on the map. For the extended monitoring panel not to consume additional space we added an option to display text information under a unit name, instead of a separate column. You can choose from address, geofence, driver name, phone number, or trailer name (one at a time).
Thus, you get more free space – the only thing left to do is to start using Wialon beta-version.

Customizable width of text columns
Whenever you have more than one column of the type, just click and pull the line between columns to expand one of those against another. At that, minimal width of other columns will always be the same, which makes text information more perceivable. View and acquire more information in Wialon beta-version. 

Geofences instead of addresses
"Geofences as addresses" functionality has become available in the monitoring panel and now you can even choose groups of elements, similar to "Geofences as addresses" option in reports. If a unit moves through several geofences, all of them are displayed one by one based on their area. Consider groups of geofences to be useful? This function will definitely save your time on targeting unit location.

Moreover, we’ve changed geofence icon in “Address” tool.

Settings visualization
“Zoning” has been added to Settings dialog visually splitting it into blocks, which enhances data perception. What’s more, we’ve rearranged settings order for you to find the necessary point faster.   

Sorting
Got to used to unit sorting by a certain parameter? Now you can be sure that it remains unchanged when you start the new session. To always keep you informed on the type of sorting we added arrows near the icon in the header.

Unfortunately, you can’t use the option in “Address” column.

Icons
The new icons sparked off conversations, so we continued to advance them and started with “Data Accuracy” icon. If the latest message received is dated (according to movement state settings), the first column in the icon turns grey. If messages from unit are missing at all, the system makes both the columns grey. Stay informed on inactive units!

Re: Testing: Overall modification of the monitoring panel

Hi there

I have some suggestion regarding this:
It seems more convenient if system automatically disable Location column when we choose Address/Geofence for second line.

What you think?

hhamedk , a person can use geofences as secondary information and addresses as primary, why not.. Seems, there are no serious reasons to disable this functions forcibly

Re: Testing: Overall modification of the monitoring panel

hhamedk , I agree, that the same info in the column and second line is rather useless. But if we limited this feature, we would face with situations, when we should make a decision instead of a client. E.g. he chooses addresses in secondary information and turn off the address column, then turn on an address column. How should we behave? Turn off the second line or turn off location column or set smth instead of an address, if yes then in what column? So on.. Moreover, for geofences clients can use information from different groups and have different information.

Re: Testing: Overall modification of the monitoring panel

I tried this out and looks good.
I would suggest to have this (if not already in the works) in the Group View. Most larger organizations like to visualize fleets within their divisions and use the Group View as their primary view in Monitoring.

Good news! Single unit tracking functionality has been implemented for unit groups in Wialon beta-version. Now you can open multiple minimaps and access extended/additional information on units in the group view mode.
