Release Notes June 2013

Enhancement: Texting Directions

Benefit to Users:
This Enhancement will provide Users with the ability to Text Directions to an SMS Domain, in a more text friendly format. Prior to this Release, Users were able to send Directions to an SMS Domain however, the format was not text friendly. By providing this Enhancement, Users will be able to truly utilize the ability of Texting Directions to an SMS Domain.


Users will now be able to utilize the ability to Text Directions to an SMS Domain. The new functionality will enable the messages to 'break apart' prior to being sent. This will enable the mobile device to receive the directions in individual messages. Prior to this Release, the directions would send in the same format as an e-mail. This caused many mobile devices to only receive part of the directions. In addition, the end user was not always aware that they were missing part of the directions. Listed below are the SMS Domains that are supported with this new Enhancement:

In addition, the Admin User will be able to dictate which Users have this functionality.


Users will be able to use this feature when creating New Clients. Within the Client Editor, Users now have the option to Automatically Assign the Client to the Site Support Users and/or the Site Monitor Users. Users now will simply select this option during the setup process.

Update: Driver Assignment to Vehicles

Benefit to Users:

This Update to the Platform will provide the End-User with the ability to assign a Driver to only one Vehicle at a time.

This will save the end-user countless hours and enable the Driver Reports to be much more accurate.


Users will now receive an Error Message while trying to assign a Driver to a Vehicle, while currently assigned to another Vehicle. The User will need to Remove the Driver from the previous vehicle prior to assigning the Driver to a new Vehicle. This Update provides great visibility to the End-User and will allow for much more accurate reporting in regards to the Driver and Vehicle Relationship.
