Dear users,

An ongoing project of ours is improving our user interface and making sure you have a positive experience when interacting with our products. Right now we are working to improve the design of our GpsGate Server. Any feedback you might have is much appreciated in this work. Feel free to comment in this thread with any input you might have regarding the design of GpsGate Server. It could be something that you like, something you want to change or maybe remove completely.

Hello,

I would like a status window like, more user friendly like in the images below, but of course with variables related to our field, like temperature, speed, battery voltage, rpm, fuel level, fuel rate, etc.

Also would be great, include the commands inside the command window, with buttons instead of press right on the vehicle and look for the command option.

I think the interface of gpsgate, should be more oriented to the final clientes, I mean our clients, they want to get the information in the simplest way, I try keep the interface of they, as simple as I can with privileges, but I think it could be even more user friendly. Add a help option with the possibility to edit the explanations, will be very useful to the final users.

Hello

It is very good to hear that you are improving GPSgate user interface.
I have already submitted my suggestions in the recent survey.
The user interface needs a modern new design
The system should be designed with the end user in mind.
A new user should be able to log in and use all of the features with out training meaning the system needs to be more intuitive to use

When selecting reports i would like the system to open a new tab with in the current page instead of opening a new tap in the browser

On the mobile application it would be good to see more of the desktop features available for example icon selection and directional icons.
On the vehicle list the status icon always causes a lot of confusion. Users always ask does the green icon mean the vehicle is moving and yellow mean vehicle idling and red mean stop which would be common sense instead of what they actually mean

We are currently looking into adding more design element like the once you suggested.

We agree. When designing new and redesigning old features we try to focus on the goals for the end users. That is also the idea behind our new mobile and tablet apps.

Please add a button on the desktop version to change to mobile. Using /m is not ideal for users

Hi,

1. Reports - there has not been a major overhaul on reports in a long time, some more templates need to be added and some felexibility needs to be added. Also a good idea, if end user has control of which columns he wants to see and which ones not.

2. fuel consumption - should be able to add a fuel refill based on right clicking on a vehicle location on the map, for example, when vehicle is at a fuel station, a right click and add fuel button should be available to allow easier manual input of fuel refills.

3. dashboards - some generic dashboards need to be made available, just how you have generic reports available. At least the standard basic stuff, vehicle run time, idle time, stop time, percentage.

4. need easier support for adding convoy grouping for group of vehicles.

5. need an update on the help link which is available on the vehicle application - some of those examples are outdated and very old version reports.

6. dispatch needs to be able to stop a job already activated

7. more right click graph functionality, instead of selecting track, track points, choosing columns and then draw track

8. right click ability to replay today's track

9. better ability to define a "trip", like POI A to POI B is defined as one trip.

10. ability to ignore "0" data in graphs

11. ability to create route geofence from the trip view in the tracks tab

12. make buttons available for the buckets to make it easier to toggle - see pic

Image

13. right click or button or info button - something which can show distance travelled in the day per vehicle

I will ask my clients for the same feedback and add more, this is just a short list. You have an amazing portal and the ability it has is unmatchable - glad to know you are making great even greater now.

The first UI update is released to BETA with a new set of buttons and a flatter design. Do note that this is still in BETA and should be installed on a test server before being installed on a live server!

How to update:
1. Login to SiteAdmin
2. Go to Plugins.
3. Change repository URL to: beta.gpsgate.com
4. Update plugin Updates.v5

If you are using any of the following plugins, update them as well if you see buttons that look strange.

Area Search
Dashboard
Dispatch Disclaimer! This will change how Dispatch works and should only be installed on a test server.

Improving GPSGATE mobile interface should be number one priority. It takes too long to open up as compared to other softwares in the market. We are loosing business due to this.

Hello,

I suggest Geofence:
-Have list table similar to POI list.
-Can add custom field.
-Searchable.
-Click center on map.
-Display Geofence and name base on map zoom level.

Thanks
Best regards

Hello,
Please consider to add additional field to fill fuel and KM details on Mobile app (Dispatch). So that driver can fill the details and send to server. Also option to take image and sign.

the new icon for network connection - is confusing and misleading. a lot of us use the green, red, yellow icons for other event rules and this is just getting lost in there. Please use another icon for online status

also the column for track in the right panel - can no longer be adjusted.
