How to Create a Pool Booking Geofence

  • Updated

Creating a Geofence for your pool booking assets is a straightforward process that streamlines the management of your fleet. Follow the steps below to create custom geofences tailored to your pool vehicle booking requirements. 

 

Step 1: Create an asset group for the pool location, then add your pool booking assets to the group. 

(For example, we created the group called 'Wellington Pool Vehicles', now we would add each pool vehicle in Wellington to this group). 

For further information on how to apply a vehicle to a group, please read this article.

For further information on creating geofences, please read this article.

The Geofence needs to be applied to a group of vehicles rather than ALL, otherwise other pool booking Geofences could trigger a depart or return in pool booking.

For example, if you applied the geofence to all vehicles instead of a group, and you had separate pool booking locations in Wellington and Lower Hutt, if a Wellington Pool Vehicle were to drive to a Lower Hutt Pool Booking location, the system would think the vehicle had been returned to Lower Hutt and would be available for use, when instead it was needed for the return drive to Wellington.
