Tive offers a variety of user-configured alerts - temperature, shock, humidity - and we're excited to announce that as of today we also support location-based alerts.

Define a "Geofence"

Our new alert feature allows the user to enter an address as a data point then request an alert when the shipment arrives at that location or departs from that location. You can even set the distance to trigger the alert (by adjusting the blue slider on the right side). As usual, alert notifications can be sent via email or text message.

"I'm here!" Said Your Shipment

With a geofence set, you will know immediately when a shipment departs or arrives. You might use a geofence to get notified when a shipment:

  • Arrives at the customer so you can send an invoice
  • Leaves your supplier's facility so you can schedule your production
  • Arrives at a port so you know the long ocean voyage is complete
  • Leaves a port after an unknown time clearing customs

Future Applications

The Tive product is constantly improving. There are many other applications of geofencing that we will be rolling out over the next few months, including reporting and analysis tools that will help our customers better understand how their goods are actually traveling.  Stay tuned!

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

  • dos
  • tres

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
