Time and Resources Pane

Almost everything in WFC is based on a set of vehicles and a particular time period. You control these settings with the Time & Resources pane, located at the top left of the WFC window.

Time & Resource settings determine what you see on the map and in reports, as well as how and when various actions are applied in WFC.

Important

Time & Resources settings persist across WFC operations.

For example, the same vehicles selected to view on the map also appear in reports. This saves time and effort when working with a set of vehicles or a particular time period: you don’t need to re-select resources each time you do something new.

Tip

If you intend to always start work in WFC with a particular set of vehicles or reporting period, you can set default values; for more information see Preferences > Login Preferences.


Setting Time

To define a period for reports, analysis tools, and other WFC features:

  1. In the Time & Resources pane, click the Time Range tab and select a period from the drop-down menu.
  2. Choose a preset (such as Today) to automatically fill in the Start and End dates, or select Manual date entry, use the calendar buttons, and choose hours and minutes (based on 24-hour clock).
  3. Ensure the Time Zone is set correctly for your location.
