Below is a preview of new features and improvements that will be coming soon. Please check this page regularly for additional updates.

1904 Release


Expanded ability to reorganize columns on the vehicle page
The 1903 release introduced a new Vehicle page. The functionality of the page now includes the option to choose any of the information columns as the identifier for your vehicles. Columns can be moved by dragging and dropping to arrange in your desired order.

Changes made to Duty Status Logs page for unassigned drivers in Transflo Telematics portal
Updates made to the Duty Status Logs page in the 1903 release have been rolled back for unassigned drivers. Instead of clicking the View Logs button, logs for unassigned drivers are now displayed in list view by default. These changes have also been implemented in the 1903 release.

Adverse Driving Conditions Symbol updated to “ADC”
The abbreviation for Adverse Driving Conditions has been changed from “AW to “ADCon the Duty Status Logs page in the Transflo Telematics portal. Adverse Weather (AW) is just one of several Adverse Driving Conditions (ADC).

Configurable option to add or remove Sleeper Berth from the Vehicle Edit page
An option to add or remove Sleeper Berth has been added to the Vehicle Edit > Detailed Device Info page. This is helpful for fleets with vehicles that are not equipped with a sleeper berth.

Daily and Driving Violations combined in Graph view – Canadian Rulesets
For drivers using Canadian Rulesets, daily and driving violations have been combined into one compact view on the Duty Status Logs Graph in the Drive app. Previously, alerts displayed separately across the top and bottom of the screen, depending on whether they were daily or driving violations.

New Rulesets added for Canadian team drivers
Two new rulesets have been added for Canadian team drivers: 

  • Canada 7-Day Cycle 1 Team 
  • Canada 14-Day Cycle 2 Team.

Estimated speed limit will now be displayed on relevant Exceptions
Speeding exceptions now indicate whether or not the exception occurred on a road with estimated speed limits.

DVIR – Wrench Icons

  • No wrench: If there are no DVIR defects, the Defects symbol (wrench) is not displayed on the log.
  • Gray wrench: If there are defects that require action, and the defect(s) are unregulated, the Defects symbol (wrench) displays in gray.  By hovering your mouse over a DVIR log that required action, a Needs repair tool tip displays.

DVIR – Repair Remarks
To better distinguish between repair remarks that have occurred in the past, and those completed during the current DVIR, the Inspector remark now displays with Repair remark under on the DVIR Edit page, while Legacy repair remark (a remark added in the 1901 release) displays at the top of the page.

Confirmation required before turning on default rules
Default rules now require confirmation before they are enabled to prevent users from accidentally turning on rules when navigating the page. Users must now confirm their selection by selecting Turn on before the change is applied to the database.

DVIR – Updated legal attestations for Canadian DVIRs
The legal attestations for Canadian DVIRs have been updated to correspond to their respective provinces. For drivers in Canadian Provinces, the following legal attestations must be acknowledged when signing current DVIRs, as well as reviewing previous DVIRs. The location on the DVIR log is used to determine which Provincial attestation to display on the DVIR.:

  • Alberta: “I declare that the vehicle shown above has been inspected in accordance with the requirements set forth in the Alberta Regulation 121/2009”
  • Manitoba: “I declare that the vehicle shown above has been inspected in accordance with the applicable requirements of XXX” where XXX is the schedule of defects used or the name of the defects list.
  • Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan: “I declare that the vehicle shown above has been inspected in accordance with applicable requirements”
  • Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, British Columbia: “I declare that the vehicle shown above has been inspected in accordance with the requirements set forth in the Canadian Federal NSC Standard 13”

When no defects are logged on a DVIR in Canada, the screen displays the following confirmation: “No Major or Minor defects found”.

New HOS enabled/disabled feature in Transflo Telematics portal
Administrators can now identify vehicles as HOS disabled or HOS enabled in the Transflo Telematics portal. This feature is useful for Administrators who want to control when automatic Duty Status logs are created, and when they are not. 

For example:

By setting the device to HOS enabled with the desired date/time, automatic Duty Status logs are created, independent of the AutoHOS flag. 

By setting the device to HOS disabled with the desired date/time, automatic Duty Status logs are not created (even when a reprocess is triggered).

Odometer and asset number are now included in the device install history
The Device Install History page has been updated to display the odometer and asset number information. Previously, this information was not visible to users.

Help Button Update
When you click the Show Help button, description and user tips will be displayed for each field. Additionally, the feedback button, previously indicated by the Pencil icon, has been renamed Send Feedback.

Added option for Add New Template in exception rule email options
The option to Add a new email template has been added to the Exception rule edit page under the Notifications tab.

Added Release Notes menu item
Customers and Resellers can now easily access Transflo Telematics release notes from the main menu by selecting Getting Started & Help > Release Notes to view.

Privacy Mode has been renamed Personal Mode
For consistency, the Privacy Mode feature has been renamed to Personal Mode. All instances of Private/Not Private in MyGeotab have been renamed as Personal/Business. The functionality of this feature has not changed.

Other Updates

  • User Timeout renamed Idle Session Timeout (Feature Preview)
    The User Timeout feature, currently in Feature Preview, has been renamed Idle Session Timeout. Enabling this feature will log users out after a set period of inactivity.
  • View Device Reports clearance has been renamed List Devices
    The security clearance View device reports has been renamed List devices to maintain consistency with other clearances such as List users. This clearance allows users to view vehicles’ complete information without the ability to make changes.
  • Select All in Filter option removed from User page search box
    The options in the Multiple selection menu on the User page have changed to prevent confusion when users begin typing into the search box. Users can use the Select visible option to select all users that match their search text.
  • Audit log will now display custom parameters for devices
    The Audit log feature has been updated to display custom parameters added to devices. Going forward, the Audit log will describe custom parameters that were added, removed, or changed.

Below is an overview of new features and improvements that were included in the 1903 release.

1903 Release


HOS Duty Status Logs page
The Duty Status Logs page in the Transflo Telematics portal now has a cleaner appearance, with the following updates that allow Administrators to gather more information at a glance:

By default, the graph displays and the logs list is hidden. You can click View Logs to display the entire list.

The Duty Status Logs graph legend only displays at the top of the page, instead of with each individual graph. The Qualifying Break color appears under off-duty hours for Canadian rulesets only, and identifies logs that meet the break requirements.

Each graph displays duration and distance information for Yard Movement and Personal Conveyance. As well, graphs will display summarized information about violations, ruleset changes, authority changes, attached and detached shipments, trailer information, and malfunctions. You can click any bar on the graph to view the relevant log on the logs list.

HOS Rulesets Updates
Rulesets now appear in alphabetical order in MyGeotab. This new configuration allows certain rulesets to be grouped together based on their jurisdiction, and will make it easier for users to find rulesets.

The following new HOS rulesets have been added:

  • California Farm Product with Rest Requirement
  • California Flammable Liquid with Rest Requirement
  • California School Pupil with Rest Requirement
  • California Property Intrastate available with Oil Well Wait time and 24-hour restart
  • California Property Intrastate with Rest Requirement available with Oil Well Wait time and 24-hour restart
  • USA Property Short-haul 60-hour/7-day 14-hour Workday (with 24-hour restart option available)
  • USA Property Short-haul 70-hour/8-day 14-hour Workday (with 24-hour restart option available)
  • USA Salesperson Non-CDL Short Haul

The following rulesets have been renamed:

  • USA Property Short-Haul 60-hour/7-day is now: USA Property Short-haul 60-hour/7-day 12-hour Workday (with 24-hour restart option available)
  • USA Property Short-haul 70-hour/8-day is now: USA Property Short-Haul 70-hour/8-day 12-hour Workday (with 24-hour restart option available)

Increased minimum password length to 8 characters
For this release, all Transflo Telematics portals will now enforce a minimum password length of eight (8) characters for new user accounts, or for password changes to existing accounts. In addition, the minimum password length, under the password policy in System Settings, cannot be set to a value less than 8.

Report enhancements

  • Risk Management Report update
    To ensure consistency among available data, the option to include historical data when running the Risk Management report has been removed. If a vehicle was archived during the selected date range, the vehicle will be displayed on the report. However, if the vehicle was archived before the selected date range, the vehicle will not display in the report.
  • Trips Summary Excel Report update
    Previously, the Trips Summary report only filtered stops that were shorter than the specified value inside Customer, Office, and Home zones. The report now filters all stops — both inside and outside zones — that are shorter than the specified value, allowing you to see only the stops you desire.

 

Direct downloading of reports
Users no longer need to preview reports in Excel or PDF format prior to downloading. Simply click the Report button to download the report immediately, or if desired, the ellipsis tool to view, then download. The “View” button has been renamed “Report.”

 

Trips History page now easier to read (Feature Preview)
To improve clarity, the Trips History page has been updated to display Driving time and Stopped time in separate rows.

This feature requires your user profile to have Feature Preview enabled; ask your Administrator to enable Feature Preview on your user’s UI Settings tab.

See one-way roads (for Google Map users)
If you selected Google Maps as your map provider in MyGeotab, you can now view the road directions for one-way roads, indicated by an arrow on the Map.

New “My location” button added to the Live Map
You can now view your current location on the Live Map. Simply click the My location button to zoom in or view nearby vehicles and zones. This feature is useful for users who want to see their current location on the map, and then reference the location of other vehicles or zones.

Show, hide and move columns on the Vehicles page (Feature Preview)
A new interactive feature has been added to the Vehicles page to help you organize your vehicles. The Vehicles page now includes additional columns of information: License, VIN, Odometer, Engine hours, Current driver, and Comments.  You can show, hide and even rearrange columns in the order you would like to see them. The new view is automatically saved for future reference. 

Additionally, the group name is now displayed under the vehicle name, and we have added a new icon to signify that a vehicle has not communicated recently.

This feature requires your user profile to have Feature Preview enabled; ask your Administrator to enable Feature Preview on your user’s UI Settings tab.

In-context zone edit menu
When editing zones, the edit page displays to the right of the zone you are trying to edit. Previously, a new window opened when editing a zone, and users might have lost their place in the list of zones. This update gives context when editing zones by highlighting the zone on the list, and allowing you to switch between the Zone edit tab and the Map tab, all in the same window. 

Unsaved changes reminder
When editing users and vehicles, you are now prompted to Save your changes if you attempt to navigate away from the page without saving.

New options for managing user accounts
Some new management options were added to the Users page:

  • Filter dropdown to select Active users, Suspended users or All (Feature Preview)
  • Active from: [Date] field indicates when the user account was created
  • Last logon date: [Date] field to indicate when the user last logged into MyGeotab, Geotab Drive, or the API.

Advisory message when odometer and engine hour values change
An advisory message has been added to the Vehicle Edit page to explain that any updates to the odometer and/or engine hour values will be queued for processing, and may take some time to complete. However, users should not experience a significant time delay.
