Add a place/zone from a vehicle's infobox

This article depicts the action of adding a place or zone via the infobox of a vehicle.

If you want to know more about a vehicle's infobox, click here.

Let's now suppose one of your vehicles is parked in the location corresponding to one of your clients and that you want to take advantage of the vehicle's geographical location to register a customer place there.

For that, click on the vehicle icon and in the infobox that shows up click on the Hamburger menu:

Then select the Add place here. The Administration > Areas > New Place panel will be shown to you:

This is the very same panel that you use when you want to create a new place but you go through the Administration panel.

The procedure to fill the available fields is the very same described in the article that shows how to create a new place. But now, there are some good news: if you select the Map tab, on the right part of the screen:

The place is already created on the map. By default it will consider a circle geometry with center on the geographical point were the vehicle was.

So, this feature will make your life easier since Frotcom already draws the place on the map, you just need to fill in the information on the General subsection.

Even though this article only depicted the option to create a place via the vehicle's infobox, the process to create a zone is similar. For that, instead of Add place here choose Add zone here:

You will be redirected to the Create a new zone panel under Admnistration > Areas > New Zone. The remaining steps are similar.
