Introducing Single Select

Allison Chen

Senior Software Engineer

We're thrilled to roll out Single Select, a Pro plan feature that personalizes onboarding and ensures 100% accuracy in the Smartcar Connect flow.

Smartcar Connect without Single Select

Smartcar Connect lets your customers quickly and easily link their cars to your application. Usually, customers select their vehicle brand, sign in, and select the car(s) they wish to link to your app. If a customer owns multiple vehicles of the same brand, they can choose to link one or more cars from a list of checkboxes.

The usual Smartcar Connect flow without Single Select.

In some cases, your might want to limit customers to linking only one vehicle at a time. This is where Single Select comes in handy.

The simple version of Single Select limits customers to selecting only a single checkbox on the vehicle selection screen. By ensuring that customers link only one vehicle at a time, your application can more easily process and store related information.

Single Select with VIN

If your customer's vehicle is already on file in your application, you can use Single Select with VIN. This more advanced feature personalizes the onboarding experience even further. With 100% accuracy, it ensures that customers link the right vehicle to your application.

To use Single Select with VIN, simply pass in the VIN of your customer's car when launching Smartar Connect. Your customer now automatically skips the vehicle selection step and directly reviews permissions for that specific car.
