Samsara supports the ability to create preventative maintenance schedules and alerts so you can better manage your preventative maintenance schedule.
In order to view your Maintenance Schedule in your Samsara Dashboard, Navigate to the maintenance schedule by selecting Maintenance > Schedule
To Add a Schedule to your Preventative Maintenance click on the upper right-hand corner Add Schedule
A pop-up box will appear. Insert a title, description, and select the interval (mileage, days, or engine hours or all three) between maintenance.
You can select either one, two, or all three of the parameters to scheduled maintenance on, and configure those values according to their operational needs.
The multiple condition schedules will be reflected in:
PM schedule modal
PM schedule list
PM upcoming page
*Note that alerts on PM schedules that have multiple conditions are not yet supported.
Apply the schedule for a vehicle(s) or an asset(s) by using the search or Add vehicle/assets drop-down.
2. If you would like to set up or edit an alert, later on, navigate to Alerts > Configure > Scheduled Maintenance.
You may select to be alerted for certain preventative maintenance items, as well as how many days in advance you would like to receive the alert.
Select the contact(s) that should be alerted and an optional description. Once you're ready to finalize your alert, select Save.
Once you’ve created the alert, it will appear on the left side of the page. You can turn the alert on or off by toggling the switch. If you want to edit the alert, click on the alert, and edit accordingly.
