New Trips API, short URLs for shared views, and dashboard live support

Today, more HyperTrack features are coming your way! Check out the details below and donโ€™t forget to tell us what we should build to make your life easier.

๐Ÿ’ผ APIs: Create, manage, and track Trips

The new Trips API is now live! You can specify a destination and get the estimated route and time to a destination that updates in real-time as the device moves. Creating trips couldn't be easier:

cURL request for trip creation

You will also receive webhooks for arrival and exit at the destination, and a trip summary after you end the trip!

ย 

๐Ÿ”— Views: Short URLs for live location and trips

The public URL to share live location and trips with end-users is now just 23 characters! As described in our new views guide, you can also get the tracking URL through our Webhooks and APIs:

Webhook/API JSON payload for view URLs

Go ahead and add this to your texts and notifications to end-users. They will be able to track through a mobile web friendly experience with no additional authentication required!

๐Ÿ’ฌ Dashboard: Chat with us in real-time

We are now just one click and one message away from right inside the HyperTrack dashboard:
