Testing Advanced Reports with Build 38

Build 38, released today, includes a test version of the upcoming Advanced Reports. Testing is currently open to Administrators only.

Advanced Reports allows you to build fields and filters for a report dynamically. Creation of the advanced reports and adding of fields is the almost the same as the Custom Reports with the exception that the user must enter the code for an event or data item instead of choosing it from a drop-down list. This is because the Advanced Reports can span multiple corridors.

The main feature of the Advanced Reports is that you can build your filter dynamically. After creating a subscription, click on the filter icon for the subscription to open the filter window.


Select a filter type from the list on the left, select the items from the list displayed on the right and click 'Add Filter'. The selected filter is then appended to the list of Filters selected and removed the the Available Filters list.

The Filters window currently does not contain all possible filters. More will be added soon. As with the Custom Reports, the subscriptions can be set up for mulitple days and times.

Please note that the Advanced Report page is currently for test and evaluation purposes only. Do not set up advanced reports for external emails for now. Your feedback in improving the report filters will be appreciated.

Other changes included in Build 38:

Automatic population of empty B/L and container number - Bill of Lading number (S/I Number or T/D Number) and Container numbers are now non-mandatory fields. If you don't specify the bill of lading number and/or the container number, TrakIT will automatically populate the numbers based on the Work Order ID created. B/L number will be TBAxxxxxxxx and container numbers will be TBAUxxxxxxx where xxxxxxx is the Work Order ID. For a group of work orders, the B/L number assigned will be derived from the first work order.

Entity Document Upload User Notification - User notification selection for uploading entity docments has changed from the drop-down list to the auto-complete text box.

Fixed issues in email updates - An extra long email in the inbox would cause an error in TrakIT and stop processing of subsequent emails. This has been fixed.

Admin Corridors Access logic changed - Admins can now view/edit corridors based on their location assigned instead of their office (as was previously).

Work Order Edit - Transporters and Agents fields have been changed to autocomplete textboxes with country selection.

Work Order Export - Export from the operations page has been modified to display <Void> when the data or event doesn't exist. An empty value in the field indicated that the events or data is actually present and is blank.


Comments, feedback and suggestions are welcome.
