How to Create a Circle Geofence

A geofence is a virtual fence. You can setup alerts to warn you when an item enters or exits a geofence. You can create three types of geofences: circle, polygon, or route. A circle or polygon geofence is used to define an area. A route is used to keep an item on a designated path. There are two steps to creating a geofence: drawing and assigning it to an item.
