The 'Live' section is broken up into four core area/functions - the session Status icons, the Map, the Users tab and the Zones tab. The information and functionalities available are dependant on the area.
The section is only visible to Solo Platform users with 'Operations Manager' or 'Manager of Worker' roles.
Prior to actioning this process, you will:

The Session Status Icons
The session status icons display the status of all Users currently in a session in the Solo mobile/wearable app.
|Alerts||The number of currently active Users who have raised an alarm.|
|Missed||The number of currently active Users who have missed a check-in at the end of a preset check-in period.|
|Active||The number of currently active Users (not including suspended sessions).|
|Suspended||The number of currently active Users who have suspended an active session.|
Session Status Icons Filter Function
In conjunction with the users tab/table (and map), the session status icons have a secondary filter function.
They can be used to filter the table to show only Users in particular Statuses.
To filter the table by the session status(s) required:
- Click the required Icon(s).
Result: The selected icon(s) centre will grey and the users table will be filtered by the icon(s) used.
Important Note: With each icon selected you ADD a status to the filtered table, if you wish to remove a status from the filter you must deselect it.
The filter will also be applied to the map area - the below map image is the result of the same filter applied to the above table.
The Map shows all Users currently in a Solo Mobile/Wearable app session that match the currently selected status. Users are represented by marker pins bearing the User's initials and coloured according to their current status.
Users with a Solo role of 'Operations Manager' or 'Manager of Workers' are displayed with white initials on a black background, and vice versa for other Users.
Additionally, if your Organisation has deployed Beacons, these are displayed on the map in their physical location.
Where two or more Users or Beacons are located within close proximity at the current zoom level, Solo will cluster them into a group. The cluster indicates the number of Users or Beacons contained within. Hover over the cluster to list its contents, or click it to view the exact locations.
The Map Function
The map within the Solo Live section not only displays all/filtered Users in-session on the Solo mobile/Wearable app but can also display basic User information. This information includes User Name, Device battery life, GPS coordinates, contact details, applicable teams and device type.

The Zones Tab/Table Function
The Zones table can be used to view any User currently in-session within a selected zone matching the currently selected status. This function works in conjunction with the map area in the Live section of Solo Platform. It can, therefore, be used to quickly scope who is within a particular zone at any given time, and for example, allow a site foreman to ensure Users in the zone have been inducted accordingly.
