Release Day: February 2, 2012
NEW TOOL: Move devices from group to group within a client
Users will now have the option of moving a device along with its history, from one group to another within a Client, without needing to create a ticket.
Benefit to Users:
This feature will save the user valuable time when/if they need to move a device from one group to another along with its history. Previously, the user had the ability to move a device but could not move its history. The user would need to create a ticket and then a Position Logic developer would need to complete the task.
IMPORTANT: When moving items without history, the unit will not be visible on the map until its next reported position. It will still be available if you search for it using the “Track Tab” on the left side of the tracking page. It will only be on the list and will not on the map until it reports. Please be sure that you are not using any filters when searching.

Enhancement 2: IDLE icon changed in history tab
The IDLE icon has changed its design and color in the history tab.
Description and Benefits for Users
The IDLE icon previously gray in color which gave the impression of being passive and of no importance (see image below). Now, users will benefit from the consistency of this icon with the IDLE directional icon that is shown in the map. This change makes it easier for the user to identify the IDLE icon.
Enhancement 3: Pursuit Mode
This feature allows zoom-in the visualization of a selected device in the map without having the map returning to its original size when it refreshes.
Benefit for Users
This feature is useful for users whose goal is to monitor closely a device because it allows tracking its exact location, keeping the zoom level of the device even when the map refreshes. This feature is aimed to serve specially security companies, tracking monitors, etc.
It is important to remember that this feature is only valid when a single device is selected. Otherwise if more than one device is selected, the map will try to follow the devices with the maximum amount of zoom.
