Release Date: February 2019
(Only available for K-12 customers) School Bus has been added as a Vehicle Type in Vehicle Route Profiles. The School Bus profile has special attributes to generate safer routing to pick up and drop off students. It permits routing along local and residential roads that might otherwise be restricted for commercial vehicles, while still avoiding roads that are not suitable for a bus because of its size.
The Vehicle Summary Report includes two new columns when you download it to a spreadsheet:
- Created On shows when the device was first added to that FleetPortal account.
- Device Status shows whether the device is available for use (Active or Inactive).
The Last Communication Time in a Vehicle Summary is now based on the time zone of the person using FleetPortal.
Release Date: December 2018
(Requires an ActiveTraffic license) A new ActiveRoutes option has been added in Vehicle Routing Profiles > General. ActiveRoutes uses historical traffic data to help improve the route selected and generate a more accurate ETA by avoiding roads that are historically slower at that time of day. It is Disabled by default.
The Vehicle Summary report button has been made more visible under the Company Administration > Vehicles tab. The button generates a .csv report that provides information including the app version and map version running on each vehicle's device.
An issue that was preventing some users from assigning email addresses for (Out-of-Route) OOR notification emails within a Vehicle Group has been fixed.
Release Date: October 2018
(Requires CoPilot 10.9 or higher) Two new custom settings have been added in Vehicle Routing Profiles > General:
Governor Speed Limit allows you to set a maximum speed to be used in routing and drive-time calculations.
Elevation allows you to set a maximum elevation for roads that can be used in routing.
The Configuration Profile > FleetPortal Sync Interval has been streamlined to one setting from six settings. The Sync Interval is used to determine the frequency at which CoPilot checks for any updates made by the fleet administrator.
Road Preferences, which allowed users to set universal speeds for various road classes used in drive-time calculations, have been removed from Vehicle Routing Profiles.
Starting with CoPilot 10.9, road speeds by jurisdiction (state/province/district) and road type are now used to calculate estimate travel time (ETT) and estimated time of arrival (ETA). These speeds, which are set by our team of map data experts, provide much more accurate ETTs and ETAs.
