Change to the Profile in Units

Topic: Change to the Profile in Units

The addition of the Profile tab in the units is a great addition. However can we have a fields added for the following

    Capacity unit ( this is used for solid and liquid products, eg Kl, liters, kg etc

      Product Type (this identifies the product the unit is carrying)

        vehicle registration details eg tare, vehicle gross weight etc

        I also hope we can use the profile fields in reports both from a filter perspective as well as for grouping.

        The point is there are too many capacity units. That's why we've created the field "Effective capacity" without binding it to any certain kind of measurement unit. You can assume anything there like bottles, boxes, liters, etc.

        Product Type (this identifies the product the unit is carrying), vehicle registration details eg tare, vehicle gross weight etc

        Please specify what exact fields you need, what they mean and what they contain (text, figures, in wich measurement units, etc.)

        I also hope we can use the profile fields in reports both from a filter perspective as well as for grouping.

        We'll defenitely move to this part but not right away. It requires careful consideretation. But it will help us think and plan if you describe in more detail what filtration and grouping possibilities you see, how you are going to use them, how they should work according to your expesctations, etc.

        Hi Alek,

        The Effective Capacity can only take numbers it cannot take text, what i was looking for was a field that can take a text entry. The fields that I am after in addition to what you have are

           - Product type - text field , indicates the product that the vehicle is carrying eg Petrol, HCL, Caustic Soda Liquid, General Freight etc
           - Max Gross Weight (Kg) - numeric field, this is the total weight of the fully loaded vehicle. The vehicle and its load cannot exceed this value
           - Tare (Kg) - numeric field, this is the unloaded weight of the vehicle.
           - Net Weight (Kg) - numeric Field, this is the maximum weight that can be loaded on to the vehicle

        I would like to be able to filter by product type so in the unit list for example show all vehicles that are used for product type Petrol or have a Tare above 4500kg.

        The same with the reports, I want to see for example the trips for all of the vehicles that were carrying Petrol as a product type for the last three months. Or, show me the Eco Driving reports for all drivers that drove vehicles that carried Petrol or Diesel in the last 6 months

        Let me know if you need more detail
