Omnitracs One 5.9SR New Features and Enhancements

Drive

Smartforms allow you to create customized forms for your drivers to complete for company specific tasks. For instance, once drivers complete the DVIR you may want them to confirm the product that is on the truck.  Some new capabilities have been added to Smartforms in this release.

Note: Smartforms are only available if you are using Drive Advanced.

  • You can now create a smart task that can include a signature, photo, or document scan.
  • You can now create conditional fields on smart tasks, or fields that only appear when defined conditions are met. For instance, you could create a question that only appears if a previous question on the form is true. The following properties can be conditional: required, disabled, and visible.

Miscellaneous

 

Omnitracs has implemented a digital adoption platform that allows us to provide announcements of upcoming release directly in the application, as well as providing guided tours to help you when setting up your system. 

When there is an announcement about downtime or an upcoming release, a banner appears when you log in to Omnitracs. 

To access the guided tours and help system, click the orange question mark icon in the lower right corner of the screen.
