Assigning Vehicles to a Fleet

Once you have created fleets in the Administration section of Sentinel FM, you can add vehicles to these fleets based on where your vehicles belong.

This fleet-vehicle assignment can be based on anything you want – for example, vehicle make and model, geographical area, vehicle role (such as garbage disposal trucks or salt spreaders), and so on.

Here’s how to assign vehicles to a fleet:

  1. In the top menu, click Administration > Fleets > Fleet-Vehicle Assignment.
  2. Select either Fleet or Organization Hierarchy Fleet, depending on the structure of your organization.
    • If you selected Fleet, then in the drop-down menu, select the Fleet to which you’re going to assign vehicles.
    • If you selected Organization Hierarchy Fleet, you must select a cost center:
      1. Click the button next to Hierarchy Node.
      2. In the dialog, search for the cost center.
      3. Select the cost center and then click OK.
  3. Select one or more vehicles from the Unassigned vehicles list on the left and then click Add. This assigns the selected vehicles to the selected fleet/cost center.

Tip: You can select more than one vehicle by holding Ctrl on your keyboard as you click each vehicle.
