How to use the Time In Fence Report

The Time In Fence report allows you to report on information relating to your Assets interactions with your Fences (geofences). This includes the time of entry/exit, total time inside the fence, distance travelled, fuel consumed and Average/maximum speed whilst inside a Fence.

The Time In Fence report is valuable for many use cases, including;

  • Demurrage time – report on how long your Asset/s are at a customer site unloading so you can improve your cycle time, charge your customers for delays, and improve your route planning.
  • Site time – report on how long your Asset/s are on the job/project site and their utilisation whilst there to help you improve your asset allocation to jobs/projects and increase fleet utilisation.
  • Geofence zone speeding – report on speed breaches on customer’s sites, depots/terminals or mine sites to help improve driver behaviour, increase safety and reduce asset wear and tear.

Note: To use the Time In Fence report you must have already created Fences in your account for your assets to interact with. See the How to Draw a New Fence user guide if you are unfamiliar with creating Fences.

Using the Time In Fence Report

Accessing the Time In Fence Report:

Click Time In Fence Report under the Reports menu.

Using the Report:

Once you have loaded the report, apply your desired filters and click the GO button.

The available fields in the report are;

Asset – The Asset Label and Group.

Rego – The asset registration/plate number and Make.

Entered – The time and date the Asset entered the Fence.

Exited – The time and date the Asset exited the Fence.

Duration – The duration the Asset was inside the Fence displayed in Seconds or Days|Hours|Minutes.

Distance – The distance the Asset travelled whilst inside the Fence.

Fuel – The Fuel that the Asset consumed whilst inside the Fence (fuel data will only display if the Asset/Device supports it).

Speed Avg./Max. – The average and maximum speed that the Asset reported whilst inside the Fence.

Fence – The Fence name.

Note: The Time In Fence report will load completed Time in Fence “segments”, meaning that the Asset will have entered and exited the fence during the filtered date range. 

If an Asset entered a fence but has not exited the fence during the filtered date period, no Time In Fence “segment” will be generated in the report. 

In this case, you can use the Fence Interaction report to report on the Entry and/or Exit date/time for an Asset.

Filtering the Report:

Groups, Tags, Fences, and the Date picker can be used to filter the Time In Fence Report.

You can also filter the report to specific assets by;

  • The Search bar 
  • Search Query in the search bar (advanced search).
  • The quick filter displayed on the cursor hover in the table row.

Quick link to Events:

You can access the related events for a Time In Fence segment by clicking on the Spy Glass icon that appears when hovering over the corresponding table row. This will open the Events Report in a new browser tab, pre-filtered to the Events received for the Asset between Fence Entry and Fence Exit.

Exporting the Report:

The report can be exported in CSV format via the export option. The report will download to your browser after you select to download it.

Scheduling a Report Export:

You can schedule the report export to be emailed to you using the Scheduled Report option.

Note: See the How to Create a Scheduled Report user guide if you are unfamiliar with this feature.
