Once you've set up your AroPoint objects and started tracking, you'll want to know how to:

  • see where your tracked assets / users are on the Map
  • view the location of scheduled jobs
  • see where a tracked asset / user has been during a certain period.

This page explains all that, plus a few tips and tricks.

Locate tracked users or assets

To see the current location of your objects (tracked users or assets):

  1. From AroFlo's main menu, click Map.
  2. In the Objects panel, click the checkboxes for the objects you want to locate.
  3. The objects will appear on the map, represented by either a default icon, e.g. a red pointer, or an icon you've chosen.

Can't see any objects?

Make sure the Objects  (arrow) icon is on.

If you still can't see an object that you think should be visible on the map, click the Fit Objects  (arrow inside square) icon. This will zoom the map out so that all your objects are visible, no matter how far afield they may be.

Objects all bunched together?

If several objects are within a short distance of each other, you may see a group of object icons on top of each other, like this:

You can click the Show as Group  (number inside circle) icon to display just a number on the map, instead of individual objects. Click the number or zoom in to see which objects are included.

Note: In the right-hand part of the following image, the Show names   icon has been clicked.

View the location of jobs

To see the location of jobs that have been scheduled for someone:

  1. Click the History tab.
  2. Select the Device the person is linked to.
  3. Complete the From and To fields, or leave the defaults in place to view the current day's jobs.
  4. Click Show History.
  5. Click the Show Scheduled Tasks  (list) icon. The tasks appear as a white toolbox on a blue background .

From here, you can click a task  to display information about it including the AroFlo job number, client, schedules and location.

View tracking history

To see where a tracked object (asset or resource) has been:

  1. Click the History tab.
  2. Select the Device.
  3. Complete the From and To fields, or leave the defaults in place to view the current day's jobs.
  4. Click Show History.

Field vs Device Tracking

The object's tracking history will appear differently, depending on whether it is being tracked via a device or via a mobile phone.

Device tracking gives the more accurate, detailed history, showing every road taken.

Field (mobile phone) tracking shows points on the map, joined by straight lines. These points are the locations at which an AroFlo user interacted with the AroFlo Field interface.
