- Step 1. Begin setup: sync your users.
- Step 2. Sync your vehicles.
- Step 3. Sync your assets.
- Step 4. Complete setup: sync your geofences.
You’re done with the setup portion of our workflow! In the next handful of steps, you will use the TMS core functionality for your day-to-day operations.
Having completed setup, your system is synchronized with Motive. Now use the core functions that constitute your day-to-day operations.
