    How to View and Create Trip Replay Reports

    The Trip Replay report shows you an animated view of a trip over the time period selected. As the vehicle/system moves on the map, it is followed by a colored trail that indicates speed and distance covered. Date and time information helps you identify where a system was at a specific time.

    You can configure the report to show trips within a specific zone, as shown below.

    Start, pause, replay, replay speed and map zoom controls give you options for viewing trip replays.

    Creating a Trip Replay Report

    To begin, from the Reporting dashboard, click the Create a New Report icon.

    An empty report screen appears.

    Select a Template

    Choose how often you’d like this report to be run. Click:

    • Single for a one-time report

    • Weekly

    • Monthly

    • Yearly

    Under Report Properties, you can complete the scheduling for your new report. The section below describes how to configure the time and the day on which you’d like your report to run.

    To run a report immediately, click Run Report.

    Define the Report Properties

    The required fields for creating a valid report are Type, Name and Range.

    Select the Report Type

    Select Trip Replay from the Type menu.

    The Report Properties page appears.

    Enter a Name and Description

    Give your report a brief, descriptive name. You may want to use a driver’s name, a vehicle model, and/or the AirLink gateway or router model, depending on the type of report you run.

    Below the Name field, you can enter a longer report description. You may want to include the report’s schedule and reporting zone.

    Select the Reporting Range

    The Range menu lists the options for the reporting period. You can select a predefined Reporting Range, or configure a Custom range.

    If scheduling a recurring report, select one of the relative date ranges (Yesterday or Last 7 Days, for example). Selecting an absolute range will generate the same results each time.

    If you click Custom, a calendar appears, allowing you to select a start date/time and an end date/time for your report.

    Select Recipient Email Addresses

    Click the Recipient Emails field to select the people you would like to be notified when the report is run.

    You can also manually enter email addresses in this field.

    Select a Zone

    For Trip Replay reports, you can specify one inclusion zone.

    • Location data collected outside the “Included” zone is not shown in the trip replay.

    The zones available to you are defined in the Configure > Zones section.

    For more information, see How to Create a Zone .

    Select Units

    You can choose to render your reports in metric or imperial units.

    Define Speed Thresholds

    You can fine tune the speed levels (low/high) that are indicated by green and red color trails on the map.

    Select the Systems

    Select the systems for which you want to run your new report. Select checkboxes for the desired system(s), or filter the list to narrow down your choices. You do not need to use the checkboxes to select specific systems. Selecting the checkboxes will override general filters.

    You can select a maximum of 450 systems for a reporting range of up to one month. You can select a maximum of 45 systems for a reporting range of one year. To determine the maximum number of systems for ranges between one month and one year, multiply systems x days x 5500 (data points). The result must be under 90 million (the maximum number of data points).

    Select Advanced Settings: Start and End Dates

    The Advanced settings are strictly optional. If you enable these settings, you may want to set a reminder (external to ALMS) to notify yourself of the start and end dates.

    Click the Advanced button to display options for selecting start and end dates for your reports. For example, you can configure a weekly report to run for two months starting one week from today.

    Clicking Start Time or Run Until displays a calendar on which you can define a start date/time and end date/time.
