Live Sharing links are shareable links that a Fleet Admin can create to share information about vehicle location or real-time ETAs. This is useful to share fleet information to staff, customers or clients who do not have access to the Samsara Dashboard.
Fleet admins can create 4 different types of Live Sharing links to share statuses on Vehicles, Locations/sites, Recurring Routes, Route stops.
These links are used to view current GPS location and status of all vehicles, a set of tagged vehicles, or a single vehicle.
For a Location
These links are used to view all route stop visits for that address book location. They list route stops from the scheduled status all the way through completion. You can also click view details next to any of the rows to see the route stop Live Sharing link associated with that stop.
For a Recurring Route
For a Route Stop
These links are associated with a particular route stop and reflect the current status for that route stop (scheduled, en route, arrived, & departed) as well as a real-time map of the vehicle once it is en route. Note: These Live Sharing links are accessed from existing routes from Fleet>Routes.
