A Geofence is a virtual boundary that you can set around job sites, fueling stations, offices—anywhere! Enable a Geofence alert in the Fleet app of T3 and you will be notified via text or email of entry & exit activity. If you are creating several geofences, you can use our Bulk Add option.

  • Open the T3 Fleet web app and select Geofences from the left menu.

  • Select Create geofence from the top right. 

  • Enter the address for the Geofence location in the Search Map field. Press Enter. Note: The location can be zoomed in or out from the + / - icons on the right side of the map. 

  • A drawing toolbox will display shapes to help you build your geofence.

  • Select the shape for your Geofence. 

    • The circle and square tools will create a standard shape for your geofence.

    • The Edit tool will allow you to customize the shape of your geofence. With the Edit tool selected, click left on your mouse to create a point and drag your mouse to create a line.

  • Once you are done, enter a Name, Geofence Type, and Start & End Dates. Select a Geofence Color from the dropdown options to customize the geofence on the map.

  • Your geofence is saved!

  • Select Redraw Geofence to make edits.

Setting up a Geofence Alert to Monitor Activity

  • From T3, select the app drawer icon from the top navigation bar.

  • Select Fleet from the expanded menu.

  • Select Alerts from the left menu.

  • Select the Configure tab.

  • Select the Create rule button.

  • Complete the Add Alert Rule form.

    • Fill in the Alert Name.

    • In the Alert When field, select Geofence and then select your geofence (or leave blank to include all of your geofences).

    • In the Apply to assets associated with field, select which assets to include in the geofence alert.

    • Add the T3 Users to be notified of the alert. They will be notified by SMS or email, depending on their Profile settings. Note: Be sure the user has a cell phone number defined in their profile if they want SMS text notifications.

    • Select the Save button once you are done.

  • The alert is saved!
