The home base can be defined through geo-fences. Home base geofences can be used for multiple things:
a) Tracking distance of trucks to their home base
b) Tracking traffic entering and exiting the home base
c) Getting alerts when specific trucks enter or leave the home base
With the 'Logistics' application selected through the App switcher, select the 'Settings' tab on the menu
Click on the '+ Geofence' button on the top right section
1. Provide a name for the geo-fence
2. Choose the 'Home base' category from the drop-down
For help with creating other types of geofences, refer to this article: 'How to Create a geo-fence'
3. Choose buffer zone value.
4. Choose a different color for the geo-fence perimeter, if needed.
5. Draw the perimeter for the geo-fence by choosing the 'circular' option
Pan & zoom-in to the area of interest on the map.
Select the 'circle' icon on the top right corner of the map view
Click on the 'scale' icon on the toolset on the right side of the map. This enables location coordinates and distance measurements on the map.
Use your cursor to click and mark the center for the circular perimeter on the map. Dragging between clicks allows you to expand the circle for the required radius.
Tip: You can use the search bar on the top left corner of the map, to identify the location by typing in the partial/complete address
Using a 'click and drag' method, the center and radius of the perimeter can be adjusted.
Once you are satisfied, clicking on the 'Save' button on the top right saves the perimeter definition.
Note: Adding a Home Base does not mandatorily need the definition of an alert with the associated Home base geo-fence. But if you want to define an alert, you can follow Step 4 outlined in the article: 'How to Create a geo-fence'
