Fleetrun updates: what's new

Re: Fleetrun updates: what's new

Dear all,

yesterday we have released a minor update of Fleetrun.

Now it has become possible to set up notifications in regards to services not only for fleet admins but also for regular users. It only requires a separate right to be granted.

Once this right is given to a user, they will be able to view the notifications that have already been created and create new ones.

P.S. Happy holidays!

Fleetrun updates: what's new

Re: Fleetrun updates: what's new

Dear partners,

On Friday we have finally finished working on the functionality of data import from a file. It has become possible to import intervals (besides services and line items that were available for import previously).

The general scenario of importing intervals is basically the same as in importing services and line items.

I want to pay your attention to how the dropdown for selecting the corresponding columns operates:

- selection of interval type is required, minimum one interval type should be selected. However, it is necessary to note that in case the type of interval is 'by time', then when importing the system will consider as valid those intervals that have only ONE option selected: days/weeks/months/years. If you look at creation of intervals from the intervals, you will see that we are sticking to the same logic in both places.

- for each specified interval type it is possible to specify the import of the Last service value.

This functionality was implemented upon the request of many of our partners, but as soon as we started the development we found out that there is nobody that could actually share with us some sample file with intervals that are potentially (in real life) are subject to import into Fleetrun. In case you have such files, we will be glad if you send them to mars@gurtam.com. We are interested in studying such files so that we can estimate how close to reality import works in Fleetrun and what can be improved.

Thank you!

Fleetrun updates: what's new

Re: Fleetrun updates: what's new

Dear partners,

we have delivered another update of Fleetrun and implemented the following enhancement: now it has become possible to pull the values of mileage and engine hours for the period prior to adding a unit to the fleet.

Till this update, we were starting to receive data on mileages and engine hours only after the unit was added to the fleet. On the other side, we allowed migrating/import data on fulfilled services (with costs) for any period. As a result, it turned out that such a value as 'cost per km/mi' was not calculated correctly. With the new feature, this behaviour will be fixed.

Besides, sometimes we were getting the invalid data from Wialon (let say a user manually changed the mileage value to some incredible number) and making corrections was only possible with the help of developers (so that the corresponding peak is not displayed in graphics). This update will provide such an ability for any administrator of the fleet in the fleet settings:

Fleetrun updates: what's new

Re: Fleetrun updates: what's new

Hi all!

On Friday we have delivered a small update of the application, after which it has become possible to specify not only the date on which the service was performed, but also particular hours and minutes. Such an enhancement is valuable for two cases:

- in the upcoming services there is now information about the time for which the services are planned and users can plan fleet capacity and workload;

- in the closed services it is necessary to have data on how many days, hours and minutes the unit spent in service (currently when a service is started and finished on the same date we count it as a whole 1-day service). This means that the duration of the services becomes more precise. Besides that, such a functionality is useful for calculating some custom metrics which require specifically the number of hours spent in service.

So the changes are the following:

1) you can now specify the time format in the user settings:

2) the ability to specify the hours/minutes is located in the service registration screen (it is valid for each status of service), just click the field titled Service time:

https://forum.gurtam.com/misc.php?action=pun_attachment&item=10911&download=0

https://forum.gurtam.com/misc.php?action=pun_attachment&item=10910&download=0

3) service time is displayed in the list of upcoming services (screen Services and reports) whereas for closed services the system displays the calculated duration of services taking into account the specified hours and minutes (screen Services and reports):

Fleetrun updates: what's new

Re: Fleetrun updates: what's new

Dear all!

We’ve just released the next Fleetrun update. Now you can create additional notifications for manually created upcoming services.

This functionality will be useful for additional information about the upcoming service. Since the upcoming service is planned for a month in advance or more, it will be displayed in the list of services, but forgetting it is quite simple.

To receive additional notification about the upcoming service, you need to activate the “Additional notification about upcoming service” checkbox and set the number of days before the service.
