Monitoring your fleet in Workiz

After enabling the integration and connecting your Linxup account, Workiz will have access to your fleet’s location data in real time.

Linxup is designed to track the location of your company vehicles. It is not connected to the separate ability that Workiz provides to track the location of your techs using the Workiz app on their mobile devices.

All of the settings associated with tracking your team's location with the mobile app will not impact the Linxup integration.

Open the Map page and select the Trucks tab to view all of your vehicles as well as their statuses and locations. You will need to manually refresh the results in order to get a real-time look at your fleet location.

A vehicle can have one of three statuses:

  • Moving: The engine is on and the vehicle is in motion
  • Idle: The engine is on and the vehicle is not in motion
  • Stopped: The engine is off

Each vehicle will also contain several pieces of information, including the fuel level, current speed, and the last known address at the time of update.
