Tracking Schedule

Modified on Wed, 01 Sep 2021 at 03:39 PM

The Tracking Schedule plugin is a filter that makes it possible to discard device messages sent outside of working hours. This helps preserve data privacy for employees in their off-hours.

With this plugin, weekly schedules can be defined and attached to roles. It can be effective for predictable schedules that don't change often or require customisation. If you need a more flexible custom solution, you can use scripting and tags to switch between business and off-hours. Contact a support agent for more information.

How the Tracking Schedule plugin works

Scenario: a message is received from a user that belongs to a role that has a schedule defined.
Action: the time stamp in the message is checked against the schedule.
Result: if the timestamp is within scheduled working hours, the data is processed as usual. If the timestamp is not within the scheduled working hours, the message will be discarded and not be registered in the database.


1. Log in to the application as an administrator.

2. Select Tracking Schedules in the Windows menu.

3. A window of schedules will appear. Click on Add new Schedule.


A window with schedule properties will appear. 

4. Define the schedule and give it a unique name.


5. When done editing the schedule, click the Save button.

The properties window will close and the schedule will appear in the schedule list window.


If the schedule was enabled for any role, filtering is now activated. It is possible to edit an existing schedule by clicking on it in the schedule list window.

Additional notes

  • You should not assign more than one schedule to each role and not more than one role containing a schedule to each user.
  • The timestamp used is the one reported by the device, not the arrival time at the FleetMotus Server.
  • Schedules are interpreted as being in the time zone of the application.
