Add a map overlay

dash-aamo.gif

You can enhance your organization's map with lines and polygons by adding a custom map overlay. This is useful if you would like to visually represent a particular location like a warehouse or restaurant, or delineate a zone in which a particular team operates. Currently this is strictly a visual enhancement, and does not change the behavior of tasks, drivers or notifications.

To use the map overlay feature, you must first create a file of the type "GeoJSON". GeoJSON files can be created on a number of websites for free, including http://geojson.io

On geojson.io, the screen is divided into two halves, a map (left) and a document (right). We will focus on creation of your file from the map side.

First, search for an area using the magnifying glass in the top right of the map.

   

Then, using the search and the drawing icons in the toolbar, place your points, lines and polygons ("features") on the map.

 

Once you are satisfied with your features, you can download the file to your computer by navigating to Save > GeoJSON from the menu in the top left corner of the screen.

            

To add to Onfleet, simply open Settings > Organization > Add a Map Overlay and choose the file you just created.

After a quick refresh of the dashboard, your custom map overlay will be visible!
