Workflow automation app upgrade

Workflow-automation app-2.png

One of the most popular value-adding apps, Workflow automation, has received a significant upgrade.

In addition to improving the look and feel and updating all the descriptions to be consistent, there are a few key improvements to bring out:

  • You can now set date-based triggers. We merged the Future events app with Workflow automation.
  • We're automatically catching contradicting workflows. You'll receive an email notification if you have created a workflow that doesn't allow the other to function correctly.
  • We extended data packages related automatic actions to optimise costs better.
  • You can now set triggers for custom periods and indefinitely. E.g. trigger an action if SIM has consumed more than x GB during the entire lifecycle of the SIM.
  • You can select one of three units for every consumption-based trigger — KB, MB or GB. It used to be just MB.

Learn more about Workflow automation in our short video guide.




Fixes and improvements

  • Fixed an issue where the dropdown in the SIMs view's table was acting up when creating a new group or tag
  • Customers who have added a dedicated email(s) for monthly invoices won't receive an invoice to a general company email address (unless they are the same)



Improved sub-client app

Sub-client app.png View demo

We are excited to let you know that we have updated our sub-client app.

Often our customers are not the end-users of the IoT devices. The “sub-client” app allows device manufacturers to give day-to-day SIM management to device owners. This will let device owners see real-time data usage, manage the SIM lifecycle, set up alerts, and make changes to their SIMs as needed.

With this new update,

  • you’ll have a more granular and future-proofed way of giving permissions to third parties;
  • you can group SIMs without affecting the sub-clients interface or conflicting with your customer’s way of doing things;
  • you can export data usage and costs per sub-client, making it easier to charge your customers;
  • you can allow your customers to leverage value-adding apps without yourself subscribing to them.

If you have any questions or need help getting started, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would be more than happy to assist you.


Slide-over for SIM details

The recent release also includes a slide-over for SIM details.

The slide-over includes all the information from the SIM detail page. Instead of being directed to a new page when you click on the ICCID, you'll see a slide-over with the same information anywhere in Terminal.

Since you don't have to leave the main page anymore, it speeds up troubleshooting and makes applying small changes to SIMs from any screen convenient.




We hope you enjoy these two new updates!

Quick SIM search


Today we're rolling out a keyboard shortcut that makes finding SIMs quicker without taking your hands off the keyboard.

Cmd+K / Ctrl+K brings up a quick search box to find a SIM and directs you to the SIM detail page from anywhere in the Terminal.

Wherever you are in the Terminal, you can bring up the search box by using the same keyboard shortcut.

SLEEP status is merged with OFFLINE status

We merged SLEEP and OFFLINE statuses. 1oT Terminal now only displays the OFFLINE status as SLEEP will be discontinued.

How might this affect you?

  • If you don't have any SIMs in SLEEP status, it will not affect you.
  • If you have some SIMs in SLEEP, the SIMs will be automatically converted to OFFLINE status.

In no scenario will your costs increase. They either remain the same or decrease.

  • The OFFLINE status will have the same monthly fee as you had with SLEEP status. The monthly cost of SLEEP status is applied to OFFLINE SIMs.

From today, you cannot put SIMs to SLEEP status. Instead, the OFFLINE status will remain the only status for deactivating SIMs and data allowance.

  • Any Workflow automation events that currently put SIMs to SLEEP status will be converted to put the SIMs to OFFLINE status instead.
  • In the API, OFFLINE and SLEEP status will also be merged. If you send in a request to put the SIM to SLEEP status, it will still work. But the SIM will go to OFFLINE status.
  • OFFLINE will be the only status that deactivates data/SMS usage and stops SIMs from pinging the network for any updates.

Fixes & improvements

  • Unified the colour scheme across Terminal





Savvier filtering in SIMs view


You can now filter out SIMs in a new status due to automated action since the last login. Or SIMs, which transaction is still pending, meaning that it has not been completed yet.

You can see all described SIMs or find SIMs with a specific event.

Improvements and fixes

  • ​​Fixes toast notifications overlaying the menu dropdown
  • Fixes date picker’s dates which were shown under the wrong weekday due to different standards of the beginning of the new week



Fixes and improvements from March 16

We're excited to let you know that we've made minor updates to the 1oT Terminal.

  • eSIM management page now has proper search and filtering capabilities
  • API app & documentation page has a new design for a smoother experience
  • Fixed a bug where a user could create a SIM group without naming it



Small improvements

The team has been busy building an internal customer and SIM inventory management system for our customer success and support team.

Additionally, we're making this available to licensing partners, so they can use it to manage their customers as well.

We're constantly working to make our platform better, and we appreciate your feedback along the way. We have a few things to announce very soon.

Fixes & improvements

  • Added a new "over x MB for y Days" rule to the Workflow automation app
  • Improved how the date picker works across SIMs view and SIM (ICCID) detail page. The selected period is applied cohesively across multiple pages and charts when navigating different Terminal pages.
  • Made changes to how the pages and information are loaded from different databases to avoid the whole page failing to load if there's a problem with one of the microservices.



See your deployments on a world map

map + data (1).png

We released a new dashboard for all customers at the beginning of January. Now we're adding a world map to see all the deployments visually. Plus, you can see the top five countries based on data consumption next to it.

Other improvements

  • Improved loading of data table and charts of the new Analytics app
  • Fixed minor bugs of SIM selection step in eSIM profile swap flow
  • Updated the look of toast notifications (success and fail messages)
  • Moved large video files to S3 (in AWS) to improve performance
  • Unified the design and functionality of filter component across all pages



New Analytics app


View demo

We have completely overhauled the analytics app in Terminal.

The goal of the analytics app improvements was to provide a more thorough analysis of data consumption, connectivity costs and deployment across all SIM inventory. The app has two components — a chart and a detailed table. The detailed table reflects whatever is shown on a chart on a SIM level.

After selecting a metric to analyse, you can choose the visible period and compare it to the previous period. For better analysis, you can toggle between line charts or column charts. In addition, you can filter to see a specific portion of the inventory

  • look for specific SIMs by ICCID or EID
  • look for SIMs in exact status or in a particular country
  • add minimum and maximum thresholds for consumption or SMS sending.

Plus, you can download all the data if you want to do some number crunching in Excel (or anywhere else).

The new Analytics app design is available for all customers. Go to the app store to enable it for your workspace.




Other improvements

  • You can now rename existing SIM groups with one-click



Workflow automation supports SIM status changes


We introduced a new powerful trigger for the workflow automation app. You can now use the change of SIM status to trigger an automated workflow. If a SIM goes from one status to another, you can set up an automatic action — some identification modification with the SIM or receive a notification via email or Slack message.




Other improvements

  • Mobile view now supports searching by MSISDN
  • We made the alerts page substantially faster by only showing the events from the ongoing month.
  • 1oT Terminal API now supports moving the SIMs from SHIPPING status to TEST status. TEST status is available upon special request from your account manager.





All new dashboard in 1oT Terminal


We released an updated dashboard for all 1oT customers. You can now see the latest alerts because sometimes things happen, you must react, so seeing them quickly is necessary.

The main charts are an overview of your SIM inventory in different statuses, a consumption overview and a quick indication of connectivity costs with a cost per SIM reference.

We have a few more refinements waiting to be released for the dashboard. Keep your eyes open but meanwhile, share feedback on how you find the new dashboard.




Updates to 1oT eSIM

  • Data sessions with Vivo carrier profile now include exact SIM location, IMEI, radio access technology and if the data session is ongoing or not
  • Introduced a new eSIM carrier to all customers. Go to the eSIM management tool to see the carrier and where it shines with its coverage

Other improvements

  • Fixed a bug where the “Apply filter” button sometimes didn’t show up when changing the date filter in SIMs overview page
  • Fixed a bug where the SIMs search field was empty, but you applied the previous filter, therefore showing wrong results in SIMs overview page
  • Added a voice call duration column to the SIMs view table and made it visible in all downloadable reports
  • Improved how input fields of dropdown work — they are now active by default, meaning that you can start writing (searching) without doing the second click in the field
  • Implemented failsafe measures against brute force attacks to protect the 1oT Terminal from malicious actors who try to log in via scripts
