Introduction to MyAdmin

MyAdmin is the primary management tool for Geotab Partners.

This document provides in-depth guidance on using the features and functionality of the MyAdmin portal.

MyAdmin Portal

As the primary management tool, MyAdmin functions as a single point of access for all order, shipment, account and device administration, and RMA-related needs. This document provides detailed information about each page and feature, as well as step-by-step guidance on using MyAdmin.

  1. Navigate to the MyAdmin portal.
  2. Select the Create an account link.
  3. Enter the Company Name, Email Address, First name, and Last name of the user.

A confirmation email prompting you to confirm login credentials.

NOTE: The link to confirm your email address is active for two hours after registration. If the link expires, select the Forgot password? link on the MyAdmin login page to receive another confirmation email.

! IMPORTANT: If you attempt to log in before confirming the email address, you will receive an error message prompting you to check your inbox for the account confirmation email.

Roles for user access

Roles are required to use the features and functionality available in MyAdmin. For detailed information about the required roles, refer to MyAdmin Roles.

MyAdmin Login Credentials

It is your responsibility to keep any user identification or passwords issued to you in order to access our website or other services (“Login Credentials”) safe and secure and not to disclose them to any other person, unless you want to give such a person the authority to act on your behalf. You are solely responsible for any actions taken using your Login Credentials. You must only provide your Login Credentials when logging into our website or through other automated means. For security reasons, our service representatives will never ask you for your password, and you must not disclose Login Credentials to anyone asking for it. When speaking with our representatives, they will follow other verification procedures to validate your identity.

For the safety, security, and integrity of your data, users who have not logged in to MyAdmin for more than 90 days are considered inactive and will have their accounts disabled.

To protect against unauthorized activity, accounts with 21 consecutive failed login attempts within a short period of time will be locked. After 10 minutes, you may attempt to log in again or change your password. Contact us to manually unlock your account.

Compromised Login Credentials

If you believe the security of your Login Credentials has been compromised, or you suspect unauthorized use, you must notify us immediately. You will be responsible for all changes to your account, communications, use of services, orders, transactions and charges, which are made using your Login Credentials, whether by you or anyone else, until you notify us.

Once you notify us, we will suspend your account and will make arrangements for continued use of our platform or services. If we suspect, in our reasonable opinion, fraudulent or unauthorized activity on your account, we reserve the right to terminate or suspend your access to our platform or services and any related services and will use reasonable efforts to contact you to resolve the matter.

Access databases with MyAdmin credentials

We recommend that you use MyAdmin Authentication to access the databases of our mutual Customers. The benefits of using MyAdmin Authentication include:

  1. Single Access Point Authentication — Allows Partners to log in to any of their databases using a single MyAdmin account, rather than an individual account for every Customer database.
  2. Accountability — Provides accounts for each user, for each database, instead of a group alias for accessing databases. This means that users and their actions can be identified through the audit log.
  3. Security — Facilitates the process to remove all access for an employee who leaves the company, using a single ticket.

Partner access to databases

To ensure that your employees can access databases with their MyAdmin login credentials, you must ensure that the database has Allow Reseller access enabled in MyGeotab. If the feature is not enabled, only the user who created the database can log in with their MyAdmin login credentials.

To enable this feature in MyGeotab, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to MyGeotab.
  2. Go to Administration > System... > System Settings from the main menu.
  3. Under the General tab, toggle Allow reseller access to Yes.
  4. MyGeotab fields to input Reseller Partner information.

  5. Select Save to save your changes.

This database now allows Partner access.

! IMPORTANT: Do not set Allow reseller access to Yes if it goes against the agreement you have with our mutual Customer.

Database Majority Account

For Customers who are supported by more than one Partner, a Majority Account is automatically selected for the following purposes:

  1. MyGeotab Authentication — Users that belong to the Majority Account for a database must meet certain criteria to log in to the database. For more information, see the MyAdmin Login Credentials section.
  2. MyGeotab Database Information — Users that belong to the Majority Account for a database can access data about that database (for example, database activity from https://myadmin.geotab.com/v1/databaseactivity).
  3. Extendable Services — When a device is shared with a database, the share fee is billed to the Majority Account of that database.
  4. Support Services — When a new account becomes the Majority Account for a database, the Support Services status of that database may change based on the account settings. When the Majority Account for a MyGeotab database changes, any previous configuration of the Support Services status for that database is lost.
  5. Marketplace — The Marketplace solution information (for example, pricing) corresponds to the Majority Account for the database. Orders requests submitted through the Order Now program via the Marketplace are created as Planning Orders in the Majority Account for the database.

For each MyGeotab database, the account with the most devices in the database is selected as a Majority Account.

NOTES:

  1. The system performs a calculation to determine the Majority Account every two hours. Devices that are shared from another account are not included in the calculation.
  2. If a MyGeotab database is registered by a Reseller user type, the Majority Account is associated with the account associated with that user.
  3. If a MyGeotab database is registered by a non-Reseller user type, a Majority Account will not initially be set, and the user will be prevented from completing actions that require a Majority Account (for example, sharing a device to that database).
  4. If multiple accounts have the same number of devices in a database, one of the accounts will be arbitrarily chosen as the Majority Account.

Overriding the Majority Account

To request a specific Majority Account for a particular MyGeotab database, contact Geotab Support. Once complete, the Majority Account calculation will not replace it.

Product Guides and Software Development Kits (SDKs)

Passwords

On the Change Password page, enter your email address, then select Change Password and follow the steps in the email to change your account password.

NOTE: For security purposes, MyAdmin will lock you out for 10 minutes if you enter the incorrect password five times within 15 minutes.

    Rate Plans and Rate Plan Families

    Geotab offers various Rate Plans at different price points and levels of functionality. Devices ship from Geotab in an activation-ready state. Once the device is installed and powered on, the device automatically activates on the carrier’s network, and the device is billed based on the Rate Plan selected during the checkout process. For more information about Rate Plans, refer to Rate Plan Feature Comparison and Geotab Partner Policies.

    Available Rate Plans

    Geotab offers the following Rate Plans:

    1. Base — The Base Rate Plan offers GPS location, VIN, Driver ID, and basic IOX support.
    2. Regulatory — The Regulatory Rate Plan offers the functionality of the Base plan, with added support for Hours of Service, IFTA, and Temperature Monitoring functionality. This plan is geared towards assisting fleets in meeting a range of compliance regulations.
    3. Pro — The Pro Rate Plan offers the functionality of the Regulatory Rate Plan, with the added support for engine and accelerometer data.
    4. ProPlus — The ProPlus Rate Plan offers the greatest functionality, including Active Tracking, a limited lifetime device warranty, and premium services, as well as Electric Vehicle (EV) data. For more information about the limited lifetime device warranty, refer to Providing Limited Lifetime Device Warranty.
    5. NOTE: Devices on the Base Rate Plan only record GPS data. Downgrading to the Base Rate Plan disables the ability to record engine and accelerometer due to a change in firmware. Billing is automatically updated according to the Rate Plan.

      Additional Rate Plans

    6. ProPlus Public Works — The ProPlus Public Works Rate Plan includes ProPlus features, as well as winter operational data communicated from Geotab-supported spreader controllers.
    7. ProPlus + Keyless — TheProPlus + Keyless Rate Plan includes ProPlus features, as well as remote vehicle management via IOX-KEYLESS.
    8. ProPlus + Wifi — The ProPlus + Wifi Rate Plan includes ProPlus features, as well as Wi-Fi hotspot (on GO9+ only).
    1. Third-party Device — The Third-party Device Rate Plan allows third-party devices to integrate with MyGeotab.

    Post-Activation Modes

    1. Suspend — Suspend mode is intended for seasonal vehicles that do not benefit from data delivery year round — available for a low monthly price. Suspend mode does not include GPS location, engine data, etc. and devices do not communicate or log any data except for a periodic heartbeat (every 23 hours).
    2. Terminate — Terminate mode disables the device, prevents data logging, erases the device memory, and stops the billing accordingly. Devices in Terminate mode may only be reactivated to Base, Regulatory, Pro, ProPlus, or Suspend Rate Plan within 30 days of termination. Terminate Mode requires two reasons to terminate a device.

    ! IMPORTANT: Moving a device to Suspend mode erases the device memory, and immediately puts the device into a suspended state — preventing the device from logging new data. It may take several hours or days to reactivate. A device in Suspend mode only connects to the server every 23 hours. If the device is out of cellular range, reconnection delays may be long and no data is transmitted during this time except for a heartbeat.

    NOTE: For devices in Suspend mode or Terminate mode (during the first 30 days), a monthly charge is applied to the account to keep the SIM active and maintain the database. After 30 days, devices in Terminate mode cannot be reactivated. The cost of reactivating a terminated device is $25 USD.

    Change Rate Plan

    To change Rate Plans for devices, follow the steps below:

    1. From the Device Admin page, use the filter options to narrow the selection of devices.
    2. Click the Look up Devices button.
    3. From the table, select the device(s).
    4. Click the Change Plan button.
    5. In the popup window, select a Rate Plan from the dropdown menu, and click OK.
    6. Click the Accept button to accept the terms of the Rate Plan change.

    NOTE: To reduce potential loss of tracking data, switch live devices between live Rate Plans, such as Base and Pro, to eliminate connectivity issues seen with Suspend mode.

    NOTE: Devices on the Base Rate Plan only record GPS data. Downgrading to the Base Rate Plan disables the ability to record engine and accelerometer due to a change in firmware. Billing is automatically updated according to the Rate Plan.

    Reactivate Device

    Terminated devices can be reactivated within 30 days of termination, and can only be terminated and reactivated once a month. After 30 days, devices cannot be reactivated. To reactivate a device, follow the steps below:

    1. From the MyAdmin Store, place the XXX-REACTIVATE product (located under Services) in your cart, then checkout. The XXX-REACTIVATE product is $25 USD per device (plus applicable taxes).
    2. Under the Order Information step, enter the serial number for the device(s) that requires reactivation in the Comments for Geotab field. Ensure the number of serial numbers matches the quantity of XXX-REACTIVATE products in the order.
    3. Complete the remaining steps in the checkout process and place the order.
    4. Once complete, submit a Helpdesk ticket to facilitate the reactivation process. When submitting a Helpdesk ticket, please include the order number for a prompt reactivation.

    The devices will be reactivated, and the Partner will receive an invoice for the order. Swapping a SIM card will not reactivate the device, and the warranty period is not affected by reactivation.

    Daily Activation Notices

    Once a day, MyAdmin users that have enabled notifications will receive an email regarding the activations and Rate Plan changes for the day. For more information about email notifications, refer to Emails by MyAdmin.

    Configure Firmware Channel

    The Beta Firmware Program aims to provide a simple and effective method for Customers to update to the latest beta firmware versions and test new firmware features and fixes. Through this program, you can subscribe devices to specific channels to test upcoming features and Beta functionality. The devices automatically update to the latest stable release version of the firmware on the subscribed channel, and each beta firmware cycle runs for approximately two months.

    The following firmware channels are available:

    1. Stable Release — Devices are enrolled into the Stable Release channel by default. Devices on this channel automatically update to the latest Release firmware version as it becomes available. No further interaction is required from the Partner.
    2. Release Candidate — Devices on the Release Candidate channel receive the upcoming release version of firmware. Firmware at this stage has been deemed as stable and currently rolling out to in-field devices. By enrolling devices into this channel, you ensure they have front-of-the-line access to the upcoming release version.
    3. Beta — Devices on the Beta channel receive firmware that has only gone through internal and limited field-testing, and automatically update to the latest stable Beta firmware as it becomes available. Users should subscribe to this channel if they want to be the first to test out new functionality.

    To configure the firmware channel, follow the steps below:

    1. Select a device from the list.
    2. Click the Configure Firmware Channel button.
    3. From the popup window, select a firmware channel from the Channel dropdown menu, and set the expiration date.

    ✱ NOTE: All Partners are responsible for ordering replacement products under the Proactive RMA Program, even if the Customer is enrolled in a Rate Plan with + Support.

    Partner-initiated RMAs

    Investigate — A return that is an in-warranty or out-of-warranty product that has been requested for the purpose of data extractions, collision reconstruction, engine interference investigations, or engineering investigations.

    Repair — A non-standard return that must be pre-approved by the Geotab Returns team. Additional charges may apply.

    Sales — A return of an unused, unopened product (GO device, IOX, Beta hardware, Geotab-offered third-party device or harness) purchased by the Partner, where the Partner wishes to return the product to Geotab for credit.

    NOTE: All approved Sales Returns are subject to 20% restocking fee. Saleable condition is defined as return merchandise that is in its original condition, and can be readily sold. Geotab reserves the right to determine if an item is saleable. For example, if the original purchase price is $100, then a credit of $80 is applied to the Partner’s account with a $20 restocking fee.

    Warranty — A return in which the product fails to perform during the warranty period in accordance with written specifications, when used in accordance with written instruction. Warranty Returns include beta devices, but exclude test and demonstration devices.
