Work List
  • work_list
  • units
  • monitoring

The work list displays the units that are being monitored. Two view modes are available: Units and Groups. In the Groups mode, you can see the group names and the number of units included in it. Tap the line with the name of the group to see the list of units.

The Request reports and messages access right is required.

Units are created in the web version of Wialon and in CMS Manager.

When you log in to the application, units are automatically added to the work list if it was previously empty. If you have more than 100 units, you should add the units you need yourself using the icon   near the search field.

If the unit is deactivated, it is not displayed in the work list.

Unit section

The following information can be displayed for each unit:

  • unit name;
  • driver name if the driver is assigned to the unit;
  • speed if the unit is moving or the parking sign () near the unit icon;
  • ignition state if there is a sensor (/);
  • last state information (: start time, : duration, : current mileage for trips);
  • address or name of the geofence where the unit is located (if the Geofences as addresses option is enabled);
  • the time of the last message.

If Google or Yandex is selected as a geodata source in the user settings in Wialon, then this source is used for geocoding . In all other cases, geocoding is carried out by Gurtam Maps.

The time of the last message is coloured differently depending on when the message was received:

  •  : last message was received within 5 minutes;
  •  : last message was received within an hour;
  •  : last message was received within 24 hours;
  •  : last message was received more than a day ago.
