As a manager using the Whip Around platform you are only going to want to view what you are responsible for at any given time. Whip Around enables you to easily add vehicles, sort them into teams (groups) by department, location, etc and assign permissions.
You have the option to follow and unfollow individual vehicles.
What does following and unfollowing mean?
Following means that you as a manager will see the data in the analytics and leaderboards for the vehicles you are following. It also means that you will receive notifications for these vehicles. You can set you notifications to the following:
If you are unfollowing a vehicle, you will not see any analytics or leaderboards for that particular vehicle and no notifications will come through.
From industry experience organisations generally set up their fleet managers up to follow the team they directly manage and turn notifications on. They set up their senior executives including directors of the organisation so they follow all teams with notifications turned off.
The great thing about the following and unfollowing buttons is that it is easy to manage vehicles that are floating across multiple business units.
How to follow and unfollow vehicles
- Login to the dashboard
- Click on vehicles on the left navigation bar.
- Once you are in the vehicles module, from the list of vehicles select the vehicle you want to follow/unfollow.
- A profile of the vehicle will appear on the right had side of the list of vehicles.
- Click on follow/unfollow
Please note; if you are following a team that the vehicle is a part of, you are automatically following the vehicle and this will show up in orange "Following team".
