GPS: February 2022 Release

Aaron Ross Aaron Ross

Tracks get more interactive with February's release! Track replay lets you replay historical incidents on the map at the speed you choose. We've also made it easier to hover over a track and find individual track points and their details. Security minded? We've added new strong password options at the server level.

Check below for the full notes.

New

Tracks

  • Add track replay to Tracks.
  • Hover over a track on the map to show the closest track point.

Vehicle Status

  • Support custom fields in vehicle status templates.

Charts

  • Add option to the panel menu to clear selection when closing.
  • Settings and variables can be saved to workspace.

Strong Passwords

Added password criteria that can be toggled on/off for the server in Server Administration -> Settings -> Security. These criteria will replace the "Strong Password" setting that was previously found on applications. This includes:

  • Minimum password length 8 characters (mandatory for new passwords)
  • Require lowercase (optional, enabled by default)
  • Require uppercase (optional, enabled by default)
  • Require number (optional, enabled by default)
