Geofence information block

The geofence shows in which zone a device may move. In case a device leaves or enters the configured zone depending on the geofence setting, a trigger can be configured in the Conditional Actions sections, refer to Creating a conditional action. The relevant conditional action must be of the type 'GEOFENCE'.

Conditional actions of the type 'GEOFENCE' can only be triggered by uploading device location documents and processing them through a correctly configured device position step, refer to Configuring a pipeline.
