Understanding the Importance of Vehicle Groups

Vehicle groups are a crucial feature in BigChange, allowing you to organise your fleet based on your business needs. The complexity of these groups can vary, ranging from simple divisions such as 'van fleet' and 'HGV fleet', to more detailed classifications like 'tractor unit' and 'tipper'.

The use of groups enables you to:

  • Filter lists and reports more effectively
  • Assign jobs more efficiently
  • Add custom fields specific to each group

 

How to Create and Editing Vehicle Groups

Vehicle groups can be created and edited by navigating to

  • [Top menu] Profile (icon) → Admin settings → [side menu] Vehicles → Groups.

Here you can:

  1. Add: Create a new group by entering a name
  2. Search: Find specific vehicle groups
  3. Edit: Modify an existing group name
  4. Delete: Remove a group. Note that a group cannot be deleted if any vehicles are assigned to it. You must first move the vehicles to another group.

Managing New Installations

Any newly installed tracker will automatically be added to a group called ‘New Install’. You can then move the vehicle to a different group of your choosing.

By creating and editing groups, you can streamline your operations, making it easier to assign jobs, filter lists, and generate reports. Remember to consider your business needs when creating groups, and don't forget to manage new installations by moving them to the appropriate group.
