Power Take-Off (PTO) is additional functionality for customers with special vehicles that not only use the engine to move the vehicle but also to power other parts of a vehicle. Knowing whether the vehicle’s PTO is being actively used and the duration of each use provides additional transparency into operations.
If you have PTO set up on at least one of your vehicles, PTO status is visible in the following reports and dashboard pages:
Activity Report: From your dashboard navigate to Reports > Activity Summary. Select an individual vehicle from your Activity Report. You will see additional PTO related log entries that report on when and where PTO has been turned on and turned off. Entries will display

Assets Report: The status field in this report will display a purple PTO label for any vehicle that currently has PTO turned on to provide you with real-time visibility.
Overview: You can view PTO on several places:
You can identify vehicles that have PTO turned on from shape and color of the vehicle indicator. Vehicles with PTO turned on are highlighted in purple.
The vehicle tool tip in the map also displays an additional PTO label in the upper right corner for vehicles with PTO turned on.
In the vehicle fleet list, each vehicle for which PTO is turned on displays an additional purple PTO label in the upper right corner.
Use the More > Asset Status menu to view only vehicles with PTO turned on.
For the features to appear the Auxiliary Input Type, you must configure the vehicle settings as Power-Take Off and not one of the other options such as emergency lights, or sweeper.
