How to report on Out of Work area FBT geofences

  • Updated
When vehicles are away from their home areas for longer than 24 hours for work purposes, then you could be FBT exempt. 
To capture these FBT exempt events, you will need to set up a countrywide geofence that covers all areas EXCEPT the vehicle's home area. 
To learn how to create a multi-sided geofence, see the article How to draw a Polygon Geofence
The image below shows an FBT geofence for a vehicle that is based in Wellington:


To prevent this geofence from showing across your reporting all the time, we recommend applying the settings below to your out of region FBT geofence:
1. In the Apply to Geofence Groups box, add FBT Exempt.
2. In the When should the Geofence be active box, choose Anytime.
3. Deactivate Show in reports.
4. Deactivate Private Geofence.
5. Deactivate Set Speed limit.
IMPORTANT: You MUST apply this geofence to your FBT geofence group.
To learn how to apply this geofence to an FBT geofence group, see the article FBT Reporting
