A whole new SIMs view is finally here

SIMs-view.png


After months of hard work, a new way of managing SIMs is available. We have made important and minor updates and changes, which will be demonstrated in a comprehensive video soon.

New and more comprehensive filter options

Filter.jpg

First, we added all the missing filters so that every column in the 1oT terminal can be filtered. This change meant that we had to rethink the filtering experience.

Instead of seeing lots of filters at the top of the page, you can start filtering by clicking the button next to the search box.

The great thing about this filter is that sometimes you don’t want to include 5 data packages, you want to exclude one. This can now be done by selecting is or is not.

If you don’t always want to click on the filter button, you can also filter directly from the column header.

Filtered views for quick access

You can save views based on filters to return to them later. With this feature, you can quickly access problematic SIM cards that need constant monitoring or keep an eye on a deployment in a new country.

Saving a filtered view creates a tab at the top of the workspace where you can navigate between all SIMs or a specific view.

Customizing the summary row

You can now hide or show the summary metrics that are important to you and see an indicative trend metric that compares the current timeline selection with the previous period.

Introducing a context menu

Context menu.jpg

The original innovation of 1oT Terminal’s SIMs views added all SIM-related actions to the table next to the metrics and information.

Over time, the available content in the SIMs view has expanded so that there are many columns to navigate.

We've introduced a context menu that allows you to quickly reset a SIM or send an SMS by right-clicking on the SIM row the cursor hovers over. If you select multiple SIMs, you can also use the right-click context menu for bulk actions.

Lots of fine-tuning and focus on the details

We have tweaked all the details of the new SIM view to make SIM management as smooth as possible:

  • Added a new loading animation
  • Updated the search input field
  • Fixed the table at the top of the page
  • Made selecting the date range more intuitive with a manual input option
  • Made grouping, labeling or changing data limits within the table clearer
  • Made bulk action selections instantly available.


Improvements and fixes:

  • All settings and Terminal-related preferences are now on a single settings page, accessible from the top right corner.

Holiday spirit at the 1oT Terminal

Improvements and Fixes:

  • You can now perform multiple eSIM compatibility tests with the same eSIM card
  • We improved the display of eSIM compatibility test logs to provide a better overview
  • The SIM list export file can now also contain information about SMS limits
  • We save you a few seconds when copying and pasting the 2FA code, as the input field is immediately active when you see it
  • We have fixed a bug with the navigation bar that sometimes occurred when the browser was resized

Better control over the visibility of apps for sub-clients

select-apps.png

We've made a lot of updates to the Sub-client app recently. But the more we see how the app is used, the more things we find that we can improve.

Today, we're enabling more control over app visibility for sub-clients. Instead of choosing to show all apps or none, you can now select specific apps to be visible to sub-clients.

You can also now see which apps each sub-client enables and the associated costs.


Improvements and fixes:

  • The SIM selection component has been improved and standardized across the 1oT Terminal. The next time you select a batch of SIMs to complete eSIM transactions, apply workflow automation, or move SIMs from one data package to another, the component will look and work the same. You can also better understand how many SIMs have been selected.
  • A saving logic for toggles has been implemented in the Sub-client app, so you have to click Save to keep your preferences.

Tags are now called Labels

Tags to labels.png

We have made progress in our mission to redesign the SIMs view, making it easier and more intuitive to manage thousands of SIMs.

Today, we released some updates to polish the SIMs table itself:

  • We renamed "Tags" to "Labels," but the functionality remains unchanged. You can still add one or more labels to SIMs to make managing them easier with bulk actions or have a better overview when analyzing stock.
  • We updated the design of the pill components, making them look crisper. This affects the SIM status and labels in the SIMs view table.
  • We improved how the editable fields look when editing content like SIM name, data, or SMS limit straight in the SIMs view table.


Improvements and fixes:

  • We added a new API endpoint to move SIMs from one data package to another.
  • We updated the copy of automatic emails to notify you of any delay in changing SIM status. Once the problem is resolved, you will also receive an email confirming the SIM status change.
  • We made the file upload engine faster.
  • In multi-step creation flows (such as SIM order, creating new workflow automation, or sub-client), the progress bar displaying your progress is now sticky at the top of the page.
  • Adding a new user to the Sub-client now takes place on the overview page instead of directing to the dedicated sub-client page.

See all the coverage plan options

changelog_coverage-plan.png

If you have 1oT eSIMs and the carrier profile has multiple network coverage plan options, you can now view all coverage options under specific data package.

This way you can see the network coverage in different countries and the corresponding network access technology. If you need to make changes or discuss something, all the information is now immediately available to you.


Improvements and fixes:

  • You can now create a new group using the group selector in the SIM table.
  • When ordering SIMs through the platform, you can write a longer note to the account manager if we need to know more about the order.

Updates to the navigation bar and SIMs view

changelog_nav.png

We have made some updates to the navigation bar and SIMs view, which you might have noticed if you logged in to 1oT Terminal recently.

The navigation bar now features crispy, clear icons and is responsive to the browser size.

In July, we shared that we would be working on a redesign of the SIMs view page to make managing a growing number of SIM inventory easier and more intuitive. Although there is a lot of technical debt work and refactoring involved, we have already made some front-end adjustments.


First, look at this lovely scroll bar 🤩

We have also updated the background color for the SIMs view table to distinguish it from the rest of the page, changed the colour of borders.

In the coming weeks, we will be making more improvements to the SIMs view, so stay tuned!

Updated emails from 1oT

changelog_email update.png

We have listened to your feedback and improved our monthly email. You now have a better overview of the activity of your SIMs.

The update email now includes

  • a visual breakdown of the status of your SIMs,
  • a cost breakdown and a comparison with the previous month,
  • plus some fun facts about your global deployment.


Additionally, we have updated the layout and messaging of operational emails to make them more refined and easier to understand. This means you'll now receive more concrete and to-the-point emails.

Discover templates for Workflow Automation and KPI Reports

changelog_tempaltes-2.png

You can now see pre-made Workflow Automation rules and KPI Reports as templates when you subscribe to either app. The templates show what you can do with these apps and how to achieve your goals.


Improvements and fixes:

  • We've improved the content of activation emails. They now consider the permissions the user was assigned when they were invited to 1oT Terminal.
  • In the Analytics app, you can now view data usage and the cost of each data package.
  • We have updated the content of the eSIM compatibility test emails. They now include a simpler explanation of the errors when the test failed.
  • Now, all new users experience an onboarding process introducing SIM management features. Even those you invite after you have been a 1oT customer for 2 years.
  • The menu bar adjusts properly when you use Terminal on a smaller desktop screen.

The new and improved Data packages page

changelog_data packages.png

We are excited to announce the updated Data Packages page. After months of hard work and improvements, it not only shows the price list and ongoing charges, but also helps to make better decisions on optimizing data packages.


Better overview of pricing and ongoing fees

The Data Packages page has been extensively updated to better summarize your packages.

For example, we have added a summary row that shows the number of data packages on all your SIM cards and the current usage in the billing cycle. In addition, a table lists all data packages associated with your account and gives you an overview of the package and SIM types, as well as the SIM statuses.


Pooled packages overview.png

Those who prefer prepaid billing can now check their balance on the Data Packages page, which is more convenient than the Settings page.


Pooled packages overview-1.png

If you have a pooled data package, you can monitor its usage during the billing cycle and get feedback on whether you are using too much data or if the data pool is too large and underutilized.


Updated detail pages for data packages

You can now view usage for the last six months and an overview of each cost category, such as base fees, SMS charges, or data consumption fees.

6 months.png


For customers with a pooled data package, the same bar chart is displayed for the current billing cycle, with suggestions on how to optimize your costs if you use less or are at risk of exceeding the agreed pool. You can also view the pool consumption for the last six months and assess whether the size of the data pool is appropriate and optimized.

Improvements and fixes

  • You can filter by Radio Access Technology (2G, 3G, 4G etc) on data package's pricing tab
  • Fixed a bug where it was not possible to change the SIM type when ordering new SIMs after a misclick
  • When opening the Analytics app, the default time range is the beginning of the current month up to the present day

What do you think of 1oT Terminal?

changelog.jpg

We'd like to hear more about your experience with 1oT Terminal. That's why there will be a short survey the next time you log in.

We're working hard to make 1oT Terminal better, and your feedback will help us a lot.


New trigger in Workflow Automation app

pool-workflow_3x.png

We added a new trigger to the Workflow Automation app that responds to data pool consumption.

If you're unfamiliar with the Workflow Automation app, we recently shared some inspiring examples of how this app can help you save time and money and protect against theft. Read it here →


What's next?

We have been relatively quiet with updates to the 1oT Terminal. Still, we have been busy introducing new carrier partners to 1oT eSIM (here and here). Plus, a few massive projects will be shipped within a couple of next weeks.

More so, just recently, we planned Q3 development plans with the whole team.

To highlight some things:

  • upgrading the SIMs overview page to accommodate more SIMs and offer better overviews
  • add more capabilities to the Analytics app
  • have a long backlog of papercut and usability issues that we will to polish
