Changes released with Build 76

Item List for Work Order Data

You can now define a semi-colon separated list of items that a can be used to fill in work order data in Corridor Definitions > Corridor > Work Order Data > Edit Data. The list can contain any number of items as long as the total size is within 200 characters.

When a user clicks on the data text box in the work order page, the list of items pops up and the user can select any item from the list. Although the user can also type in as usual, the text will be accepted only if it belongs to the list of items.

Open KPI Report

The Active Work Order Report has not been changed to Open KPI Report. This report lists the statistics of all KPIs that are in an open condition, irrespective of the status of the work order. 

The original Active Work Order report can now be generated through the KPI Performance Report by selecting Active and Abandoned work orders in the filter.

Primary Service Selection

Users can now select two or more primary services in work orders. In the next update of TrakIT, we will be removing the concept of primary and secondary services and leaving only services.

T/D (or S/I) field size changed

The Bill of Lading number (T/D or S/I) can not hold 40 characters instead of 20.

New Features & Changes

The latest release brings you these new features and changes:

Demurrage Slabs -  You can now specify demurrage rate slabs or tiers. For example, if a shipper charges 10 $/Day for the first 7 days, 15 $/day for the next 14 days and then 20 $/day thereafter, this can be specified in the TrakIT Corridor Definition > Free Days section.

The above rates would be added to the Free Days section as shown below:

When modifying rates or free days in the Corridor Definitions - Free Days section, you now have the option to apply the rates to all active containers in the Container Tracking List that were added via a work order with the matching corridor, carrier and container size. However, when using this option, be aware that the rates will overwrite any custom rates specified in the Container Tracking list for any specific containers.

All Services - A new field called 'All Services' has been added to the list of available basic fields in Custom Reports and Advanced Reports. The field simply list all the services in use on a particular work order. The list includes both primary and secondary services.

The new field is currently available only for 'By Work Order' report types.

Data Quality Report - The Data Quality report now includes Work Order Data. The table displays the quantity of Empty, TBA or NA data specified. As with the Event table, the figures can be clicked upon to reveal the work orders behind the data.

Entity Groups - A new master table called Entity Groups have been added. Admins can define new entity groups. Customers can then be assigned to Entity Groups to group "large" customers together.

For example: You can create a Entity Group called "UN" and then assign all the various UN customers in Entity Management to this group.

Correspondingly, two fields have been added to the list of available fields in Custom and Advanced reports: Shipper/Receiver Group and Contractual Customer Group.

Furthermore, a new Entity Group filter has been added in the Advanced reports as well as Entity Management. The filter will match either the Shipper/Receiver Group or the Contractual Customer Group.
