In October, the Wialon team added new functionality, and now you can watch video from multiple cameras simultaneously. In Hecterra, you can save a map with all the necessary layers as a PNG file on the Reports and Registrar pages. And in Logistics, we added new types of notifications, changed the design of some UX/UI elements, and worked on the list of orders and a map with their statuses.

Watching playback from several MDVRs and saving it as a single file

The Wialon video module now allows you to watch playback from several cameras on a single screen and save it as a single file. 

To request playback, go to the Playback tab in the Video tab, select cameras on a unit you need, and specify the period for which you request a video recording. 

You get a single timeline where the presence or absence of a video for the selected period is highlighted in color. Click on the time you need, and the videos will appear on the same screen.

Would you like to save the video playback as it is? Click on the Save to files icon, and the videos will be saved in a single file.

Window redesign

We changed the design of the windows in the app, rearranged some elements in them, and made the app look more attractive and user-friendly. We hope that you'll enjoy working with the new Logistics design.

New notification types

We added new notification types to promptly inform users about important events:

  • Visiting an order. The driver receives this notification type when an order is visited but its status hasn’t been indiсated yet. For example, a vehicle enters a geofence and stops there, while the order isn’t fulfilled yet. The new notification type makes it easier for the driver and the dispatcher to track the order fulfillment.  
  • Orders ready to be sent. Such notifications are used when the order has been picked from the warehouse but has not yet been passed to the driver. They are sent simultaneously to all clients whose orders are on the list. So the client is always aware of what is happening with their order.

Adding range selection and displaying order statuses on the map

Now the order status (Confirmed, Rejected, or The status is not specified) can be checked on the map on the Routes page and in reports in the window of planned and actual routes: those would be tick and cross icons. This allows you to quickly track changes in the number of orders and adjust the route. 

statuses on the map

Small novelty: now you can select several orders arranged one after another. To do this, you should select the first order of the range, hold down Shift, and select the last order. This way you won’t waste time processing each request separately.

Generating files for maps with cultivations

Last month, we added new functionality allowing users to export a map with fields to a PNG file. In October, this feature was added to the Reports and Registrar pages for potential and registered cultivations.

This means that now you get a map for a group of cultivations (for example, for a week) or each cultivation separately, with the ability to scale it. The map may contain several layers, previously selected in the properties of a cultivation. Now it’s easier to track the volume of cultivations and provide this information to shareholders. 

How do you see Hecterra in 2022? Check our forum and share your ideas. We’ll definitely include the most popular requests in our work plan.

We hope that the updates will make your work with Wialon and the apps better. Try the new functions and don’t hesitate to leave your comments on the forum.
