Spring has sprung (for those of us in the northern hemisphere) and so has the v2.27 release of GAP. This new release includes:
New Custom Map Icons: You can now use your own map icons! This can be configured via the "Configure" > "Map Icon" screen for devices. The icon must be a PNG file with a maximum width and height of 50 pixels and it's recommended that is has a transparent background. Please note that the custom map icon does not change colour when the device is in Emergency or Overdue state, as it does when using the default map icon.
New Custom User Data: We've added the ability for you to define and store custom data against users. You can set up text boxes, check boxes and drop-down lists to store whatever information you would like against each user.
New Contact Sharing: Add contacts (shared with sub-tenants) to lists in those sub-tenants (i.e. a global contact in top-level tenant “ACME” that is set to be “Visible also for sub-tenants” can now be used in a Global Distribution List in the sub-tenant “ACME – Division 1”).
Updated Device Local Time: The local time at the current location of a device can now be displayed on the device tile.

The two10degrees' elves have been busy working on a number of back-end improvements over the last few months, including server performance upgrades to all our front-end servers - hopefully you will notice a difference. Some noteworthy portal changes include improvements to the filtering options, a new time map tool and adjustments to the colour of Device Tracks.
Filtering Improvements: We have added the ability to filter based on Device Tags. Device Tags are a way of storing data against any device, for example, its colour, size, serial number or firmware version. You can now filter for any device with a particular Device Tag (e.g. Colour) or where a Device Tag equals a certain value (Colour: Blue). Another filter addition, when filtering by Tenant, you can see all Global Event Notifications that apply to groups in that tenant.
Time Information Map Tool: We have added a new tool to the main map which shows you the time of the place you have clicked on. To use this feature click the burger menu button in the top left corner of the map and select "Time Information". Click on the map to place the clock icon, and you will be shown the current time and time zone information at that point. Simply drag the clock icon to another location to see the time information for that area.
Matching Icons & Tracks: The Device Track now matches the colour of the Device Map Icon. To change the icon colour, navigate to the device, click Configure, then Map Icon. On this screen, you can change the colour of map icon.
Data Log Retention: Data Logs can now be retained longer when using the 1 hour interval.
Select All of your Contacts: Select All/None buttons have been added to the Copy Address Book page.
V2.24 has arrived – here are some of the new features we have introduced.
For added security, we now offer Two Step Verification. If desired, portal users can be asked to provide a verification code in addition to their user name and password when logging in. This can be done using SMS messages or Google Authenticator. If you would like to add an extra layer of security to your accounts, get in touch with us so we can turn this feature on for you.
We have made improvements to our IVR capabilities including the ability to set the position of a stationary phone. The IVR Check-In service allows a user to satisfy a Check-In Request from virtually any phone, anywhere. All you have to do is register the phone you are going to use on the system. Not only can you check-in, but you can also leave a message or be redirected to an operator. Contact us if you would like to incorporate IVR into your solution.
We have added icons to the device list so you can see whether a device has an active Check-In Schedule (a tick icon will be shown) or is being Monitored (an eye icon will be shown). This allows the operator to quickly see the state of a list of devices.
Enhancements have been made to the Dashboard so that you have a better overview of Overdue Devices. When you click on an Overdue Device, you will now see relevant scheduling information. Depending on your settings, you will be shown when the device last checked in, schedule type, missed check-ins and monitoring intervals.
We now support Web Hooks for Event Notifications, as well as for changes to Devices, Users and Tenants and receipt of messages from devices. Webhooks are incredibly useful and a resource-light way to implement event reactions. Please get in touch if you would like to start using webhooks.
Other minor changes are listed below:
We have some exciting features lined up for the next few months and we can’t wait to tell you about them. If you have feedback in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We are happy to announce the release of V2.23. Here are some of the new features you will find.
GAP has got a brand new look. To strengthen the association of our software product, GAP, with two10degrees, we have given GAP a new brand identity. Thanks to your support, GAP has grown from strength to strength since it was first launched by the two10degrees team 5 years ago. The new brand identity has been designed to support a new suite of applications to be launched in the coming months.
Following your feedback, we have added the ability to copy an Address Book from one device to another. Copying an address couldn’t be easier, simply use the "+" button on the Address Book page, select "Copy from Another Device", and choose the contacts and lists you wish to copy.
We have extended the reach of GAP by offering an IVR (Interactive Voice Response) service. Using your desk, mobile or any other type of phone you can check in and be called with check in reminders and when other events occur. Please contact email@example.com if you are interested in this feature.
Email notifications until now, have only shown the Search and Rescue standard UTC time zone. Although this is a standard, we heard that it made it difficult for portal operators to identify the local time zone for the tenants and device users. Now, Email Notifications will include the UTC time zone, tenant time zone, and if known, the time zone the device is located in. Please note that you must be using our new Event Notifications engine for this feature. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be upgraded.
You can now remotely deactivate our smartphone Lone Worker application when a device is removed by a portal operator. To use this feature, navigate to the Device Configure page and select "Deactivate". The user will be forced to enter an activation code before continuing to use the device.
We now offer the ability to Remotely Stop and Start Device Monitoring, as well as Enable and Disable Check-In Schedules, from a select device types. These features are disabled by default and only enabled by our support team upon request. Please contact email@example.com if you are interested in this feature.
Sometimes you need a little helping hand. We have added a link to the portal that takes you through to this support site, if it was not previously enabled. The link can be removed or can link directly to your own support documentation, if desired.
New column options have been added to the List View. There is now a column for the Device ID, and any device tags can be shown here as well.
We are always looking for ways to make GAP better. If you have any feedback please get in touch.
