More on Equipment Diagnostic Alerts

What is the purpose of the Telematics “Equipment Alerts” tab?

To give customers visibility into equipment that may need attention.

How does data populate in the “Equipment Alerts” tab?

Equipment must have an active working telematics device. It must also meet the alert threshold, which determines wen a condition will trigger a violation, to let the user know there is a problem. 

Some of the line items are in Italics. What does that mean?

These are new records that have populated since the last time the user looked at the screen.

Are there email notifications?

Yes. Users can customize the alert and when they want to be notified.
