You can set up timeout alerts to activate when a user's device has stopped transmitting positions. For example, if you have configured a device to send positions only within the hours of the second shift, you can set an alert to activate if the device does not transmit a position within <X> minutes of 3:00 p.m. Additionally, this alert is useful in determining if a device is off, stopped, or not functioning properly.  


Timeout is located under the Alerts menu item at the top. The option displays as a customizable grid.


  On the Transmission Timeout Alerts grid, the following information displays:


Enabled/Disabled status

Effective Times/Days for the Alert

Alert Name

Users Affected by Alert

Alert Owner

Groups Affected by Alert

Threshold Data

Email Notification Recipients



Use the tools in the Action column to modify or delete alert information.
