Astreon New Features and Enhancements
Separate menu tab for dashboard
The quick Dashboard was previously built into the Monitoring tab. This location was not as easy to find, and if the button was pressed it would launch the Dashboard automatically upon logging into Astreon, where you may not have wanted it to.
Now, the quick Dashboard has been moved to its own tab in the main menu bar at the top. and will no longer launch automatically (unless you had it selected from your last session).
Only units that you have selected as part of your work list will be added to the dashboard view.
New Video tab in the monitoring panel
Applicable to Howen Units and other Non-StreaMax Dash Cameras Systems
To enable this feature, contact Asteon Support.
On December 31, 2020, Adobe stopped distributing and updating Flash Player, a common software for video and audio playback on websites. This affected the live stream feature for certain camera models that reported directly into the main Astreon portal (does not affect the dedicated Dash Cam module).
In response to this, a new Video module has been developed and added into the main Astreon interface (top menu bar) with its own tab. This module requires activation (if you have camera models that previously used this feature and you do not have access to this new tab please firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance).
Improved search results in the Access tab
We have been improving search result functionality since last summer to make the search and its result as comprehensive as possible. We have added a drop-down list with search criteria. Now a user can choose parameters to apply when searching.
The new version of the Online module
We released a large system update that provides the ability to manage rides in a new operation mode. The current version adds new features, such as the automatic assignment of one unit from a set, circular routes, and routes with intersections.
Alternate measurement units
New options have been added as alternative measurement units for time, distance, area, and volume. These new options allow you to specify the time in the 12-hour format and set Sunday as the first day of the week. The following alternative measurement units have also been added:
These options have been added to assist users throughout North and Latin America.
The ability to delete a fuel filling
The option to delete a fuel filling has been added (for the unwanted fuel filling, ex. If it was created in error). To do so, you must have “Delete archived services” activated.
The ability to add location data when creating a fuel filling
You can now specify the location/address when creating a fuel filling to indicate where this even took place. This provides more robust data for reporting.
