Demurrage Notifications, Report Field Options & Time Zones

Build 82 has been released yesterday and it brings great new features as mentioned below:

Demurrage Notification Emails
User can now choose to receive daily notification emails when a container is about to reach the allowed Free Days beyond which Demurrage charges become payable, by selecting free days expiry notification in the application.

From the main menu, select System > Email Notifications. Select a corridor for which you wish to receive notifications and then click on the 'Free Days' tab.


Notifications are sent every morning and include all containers with Free Days already expired as well as those that are about to expire as per above setting. The email includes links to the Entry Work Orders and calculated demurrage (if any), provided that the demurrage rates were set.

Administrators can also subscribe users to demurrage email notifications via the Corridor Definition > Demurrage Definitions section.




The subscriptions made by admins are automatically reflected in the user's email notifications and vice-versa.


Custom & Advanced Report Options and Time Zones

TrakIT Reports will now include many options for exporting events and data in Custom and Advanced Reports. When adding an Event field to the list of fields, users can now choose from the following options:



Event Date Only - This is the default setting for all existing events. Only the event data is exported. Example: 10 May 2013
Event Time & Date - Both time and date of the event is exported. Example: 19:55, 10 May 2013
Event Updated Time & Date - This is the time and date that the event was actually last updated by a user and not the event date/time itself.
Event Updated By - This provides the name of the user who last updated the event.
Remarks Only - This option will export only the remarks entered by the user for the event.

To get multiple options for the same event in the same report, simply add the same event many times to the field list, each time with a different required option.

Data fields have similar options for export. 

Important Note: When time is exported in a field, it is set as per the corridor time zone (for Custom Reports) or the time zone set for the subscription (for Advanced Reports). Corridor Time Zones can be set in the Corridor Definitions for a corridor.


Work Order Weight

The Weight field of a work order is now not a mandatory field. If not entered, the weight will simply be set as 0 kgs.

Thus, you can create new work order by simply specifying the B/L details of the shipment and then selecting the number of containers/work orders to create.




For any questions or clarifications, please contact TrakIT Support.
