To begin setting up your integration with TFM, please make sure you have your subsidiaries set up first. Then, follow the instructions below:
Part 1: Generate an API Token / Key from within the platform
Go to Management / API Tokens from your TFM account:
Click on Generate Token
Enter the token name and click ok
The browser will then re-direct you to the token list page and that’s where you will find your Integration token / key
After you’ve received/generated your API key, please proceed to Part 2.
Part 2: Enter the TFM API Key in Alvys
Once you have your TFM API Key, you are ready to configure it within Alvys. Navigate to the Management page within Alvys by clicking the Profile button in the upper right corner, then select “Management”.
On the Management page, select the proper subsidiary from the left hand side, then find the Integrations section.
Expand the ELD section of the integrations list and click on the crayon icon from the TFM integration box:
This will open a dialog box where you would be prompted to enter the TFM API Key. Once those have been entered, please click the Save button:
Part 3: Add the TFM asset ID to individual assets within Alvys
*Before beginning part 3, you’ll need to have your trucks and/or trailers set up in the Alvys system.
Find the Assets option on the blue Alvys toolbar, then select either trucks or trailers (depending on what you need to set up).
From the list of assets, find and double-click the particular asset you are ready to assign. This will open the Edit Asset page.
On the asset page, scroll down to find the ELD Integrations section, then click the blue Add Integration button. Then, the Add Integration pop-up window will appear.
In the Add Integration window, click the drop-down menu and select TFM.
Next, find the TFM asset ID, (it can be found as part of the hyperlink when editing that asset in the TFM Platform. Ex: https://app.tfmeld.com/client/trucks/25236). Then, paste it (25236) into the Integration ID field in the Add Integration window.
Click the blue Save button. Then, repeat steps 2 through 6 for the rest of your TFM trucks and/or trailers. After you’ve completed this step for applicable assets, then you’re done! Great job!
