Hi Support,

1. I have enable privilege _BatchEditUsers in SiteAdmin and in VT applications respectively, yet I can't find Batch Edit Users menu.


2. I have 4 VT applications:
a. VT A for Fleet A
b. VT B for Fleet B
c. VT C for Fleet C
d. VT Generic contain duplicate of Fleet A, Fleet B and Fleet C (added user from SiteAdmin).

I have change vehicle icon of Fleet A into vehicle-red icon, Fleet B into vehicle-pink icon, Fleet C no vehicle icon changes.

Then I check VT applications of Fleet A, B and C everything just fine, Vehicle icons show correctly.

In VT Generic I have 4 type of View:
-view A contains Tag FleetA that group all vehicles of fleet A
-View B contains Tag FleetB that group all vehicles of Fleet B
-View C contains Tag FleetC that group all vehicles of Fleet C
-View ABC contains Tag FleetABC that group all vehicles of Fleet A, B and C. (View ABC does not use Tag FleetA or FleetB or FleetC rather it has own Tag FleetABC)

when I check VT Generic and use View A, view B or view C every vehicle icons shows correctly.

but when I use View ABC, I found bug that all offline vehicles that use arrow (ie. not assigned vehicle icon yet) shows incorrect icon, like it suppose to show arrow but showing vehicle-red or vehicle-pink icon. but for all non-offline vehicles and all vehicles that already assigned an icon, they show the correct icon as assigned.

Please check, thank you.

1. You find it in the vehicle list settings menu. That is the "arrow down" you see in the right top of the vehicle list window.

2. This is how it works: The if you share a vehicle in many apps, you will see the same icon in all apps for that vehicle. Icons are set individual per vehicle (not per tag). If you want to set a new icon for all vehicles in a tag - use the Batch feature.

Johan

We have installed trackers in Poclain Earth moving equipments being used in construction industry. I suggest you provide Poclain type icons also in the icon library so that the user can see his vehicle as Poclain type vehicle and not a truck or bus or car or boat.

Hi ezeetraker,

We'll be adding more and more default icons in the future. In the meantime you can always add your own icons. Here's a tutorial video on how it's done http://gpsgate.com/videos?movie=jDaZFMJIOXs

I've created a few icons of different colored excavators. If you send an email to support@gpsgate.com I will send them to you.

Dear,

I have update the patch as instructed, but i still seeing strange behaviour of the icon library.

When I was editing, the icon shows repetitive and cut in half.
When I tried to assign the icon to the vehicle, it shows empty page in the icon library i created earlier.
And also the last error I got after I updated the patch in beta.gpsgate.com is "Object doesn't support this property or method" when I tried to assign to a vehicle only not in batch edit mode.

Please help....

Regards,

Felix

Thanks Johan,

It was actually a browser problem, I used IE 8 and as soon as I used firefox, all those errors and behaviours disappeared and all icons are there to be picked.

Best Regared,

Felix

Good idea. Vehicles outside geofences could then also be a different colour/icon.
