From the Asset View of the Environment summary, you can view environment-related data for assets in your organization. You can also view environment data for your sensors (see Sensor Environment Report).
The Asset View (Overview > Environment) provides visibility into the most-recent environment data reported for assets in your fleet. Assets are ordered by running assets followed by inactive assets. When you hover over an asset image, the Samsara dashboard displays a pop-up that provides more details from the most-recent check-in. This view also displays the current location of your asset and assigned driver if your asset is on a trip.
The asset images are also color coded to help you pinpoint assets that may need attention:
Red shading on the asset indicates that the asset is above set point
Red lines on the asset indicate a door is open
Assets display in this view if they have a sensor paired with it, have an unpaired sensor that last reported through it, or is a reefer with a Samsara Carrier or ThermoKing integration enabled. To refine the list of assets displayed, you can use the page filters such as Tags, Attributes, or Asset Type; or use the page Search to locate assets by name or other attributes.
To further drill down into environment data for a specific asset over time, select the asset image. This will take you to the Historical Environment Report for an Asset.
The Historical Environment Report surfaces all historical data for a Samsara sensor or reefer in one place. To view the Historical Environment Report for an asset, select the asset in the Asset View. This report displays a graphical view of environment data for the selected time frame. As you hover over the graph, you can view the reported environment data for the exact time. If Trip History is available, the report also includes a map showing the trip view.
Below the graph, you can also view a table that displays the location of the asset during the trip, and the reported environmental data for each interval as defined by the frequency. The table is sorted by time in descending order where the latest data point is presented first.
To tune the historical environment report use the controls in the Configure panel to the right of the report graph.
Adjust any of the following settings as desired:
Time Range: Choose the desired time period for which you want to run the report. You can choose a maximum range of 3 days. When you apply a new range, the graph and table automatically reconfigure to display environment data for the selected range.
Frequency: Set the frequency of reporting intervals: Every hour, Every 30 minutes (default), Every 15 minutes, Every 5 minutes, or Every minute. The graph and table automatically adjust to display data at the desired intervals.
Reefer Data: If you have reefers deployed in your organization, you can also chose relevant reefer data. By default, the report displays Set Point and Return Air. Adjust the data you want to view, as desired.
Sensor Data: By default, the report displays info for paired Samsara Sensors such as DM-11, Cargo, and EM temperature sensors and unpaired Samsara Sensors that last reported through the asset. You can also Show more sensors to add any unpaired sensor in your organization to the report.
For flexible download options, you can export the Historical Environment Report in the following formats: CSV, XLSX, or PDF.
To export the report:
Selected the desired format, and then click Export again.
As an alternative to the one-time download, you can schedule the delivery of the Environment Report - By Asset to specific recipients in the Samsara dashboard. Samsara delivers the report in email as an excel workbook with multiple sheets, with each asset on its own sheet.
Select Overview > Environment.
On the Asset View, click the more actions ( ••• ) menu and then select Schedule Emailed Report.
Define the report and schedule details and Save your changes.
The time of day you schedule your report must be at least 6 hours after the selected time range of the report.
