After you click the Next button, you will see the rest of the parameters to finish the rule wizard:
Specific parameters for the event - For example, for speed limit exceeding it will be the speed limit.
Geofence (optional) - You can limit the rule with a particular geofence, e.g. for speed limit exceeding event, you can define different zones: 35 mph for city area and 70 mph for city outskirts.
Day of the week and Time (optional) - The rule can be applied only for the events triggered within a particular time range and days of the week. The following picture represents the schedule “on working days from Monday till Friday, from 9:00 am till 6:00 pm”.
You can define the list of email addresses and phone numbers that will receive the notification about the events. If this list is empty, the event will be just logged and shown in reports and events history. The text of the notification message can be edited by the user.
Suspend the rule
You can temporarily suspend the rule without deleting it. To do this just push Suspend button or Activate to restore.
