Administration > Filters > How to create vehicle filters?

In order to create a vehicle filter, go to Administration > Filters panel and click the Add new button, located on the upper right corner of the panel:

The following panel will be displayed:

Select the Click to add blue link in order to create an identification tag for the vehicle's filter:

After that, click on the Save button, located in the upper right part of the panel:

A confirmation will pop up

and several subsections become available for edition:

Besides the General subsection (which was already discussed), you have now available the following subsections:

  • Vehicle
  • Driver
  • Team
  • Manufacturer
  • Engine
  • Model
  • Year
  • Vehicle class
  • Vehicle type
  • Free field 1
  • Free field 2
  • Free field 3
  • Free field 4
  • Free field 5

By defining restrictions on more than one subsection for the same filter, the vehicles shown on the map and elsewhere in Frotcom, when the filter is applied, will be the product of all the defined restrictions. E.g. if you define for the filter, only trucks and only drivers John and Mario, the result is that only trucks being driven by John or Mario will be displayed. 

You should be pragmatic and consider carefully the filtering options when creating a filter so that the outcome is exactly what you expect.

Let's look at each subsection now.

Vehicle

Under the vehicle's subsection, you can find the following panel:

On this panel you can select the vehicles you want to see when the filter is applied. For that, simply tick the selection box of the desired vehicle. If you want to select all the vehicles, simply tick the selection box on the top, next to License plate; all the license plates will automatically be ticked.

If you select at least one of the vehicles from the list, the Vehicle bar from the left part of the panel will change:

No vehicles selected At least one vehicle selected

The very same modification is valid for all the remaining tabs.

Please take into consideration that if you select ALL the vehicles under the vehicle subsection, that has the same meaning as filtering none, since when you select ALL the vehicles, you are activating a filter but accepting all the existing vehicles. Which is similar to not filter any vehicle and show all anyway.

 

Driver

The driver subsection has the following panel:

On this panel you can select the drivers whose vehicles you want to see displayed on the map or elsewhere in Frotcom. You can select the drivers in a similar way to what was depicted in the Vehicles subsection.

On this panel you can select the drivers, which are part of driving teams, if you use them, whose assigned vehicles you want to see displayed on the map or elsewhere in Frotcom. You can select the team members in a similar way to what was depicted in the Vehicles subsection. 

Note that it is indifferent if you select a driver who is the main driver or the co-driver in the driving team.

and the Segments sub-panel:
