Data Values : New search option

With the latest update of the TrakIT, we have added 'Data Values' search field on the filter panel. This replaces the Vessel and Voyage filters.

The Data Values filter searches any of the Data fields values in work order. Use comma to enter separate text of which any can match.You can enter maximum 5 words in the search box.

For example, the below filter will find all work orders that have "ABC" or "123" exactly in any Data field.

This search option is available on both the Operations page and Finance page filter panel. Once you enter any values in the search box, it will remember the values until you remove them from the box or clear all filters.

For any questions or concerns, please contact TrakIT Support.

Where is my Truck?

With the latest update of the TrakIT Android app, we have added location tracking to the app. This means that you can enable location tracking for any TrakIT user who is using the TrakIT Mobile app.

So how does this help you know where your truck is? This can be done in 4 simple steps:

1) Specify the Tracking Start and End events in the corridor setup.
2) Create a user profile for your truck drivers and enable location tracking on their profile
3) Have each driver download the TrakIT Mobile app on his Android phone and login once only.
4) Link the relevant work orders to the drivers.

The first 3 steps are to be completed once only. However, each work order needs to be linked to the correct driver so that the location for the work order can be tracked.

Once linked to a driver, location tracking for a work order will happen only between the events that are specified in the corridor setup (e.g. From Gate-Out Port to Delivered to Customer). The latest location reported by the driver between these two events will be displayed on a map as shown below:

Please note that only the latest location based on the location time between the events is reported.

For any questions or guidance on how to setup Location Tracking, please contact TrakIT Support. Kindly note that as this is a new feature, we are still testing this on a variety of Android phones and checking compatibility as well. It may be possible that it may not work on some Android phone models.

Revenue Recognition Date for Shipments

With the latest update of TrakIT, a new field called "Revenue Recognition Date" has been added to the Shipments. This date automatically populated when a specific event is populated in the shipment.

The trigger event is defined in Corridor Definition where one specific event code is set as the trigger event. The event code used should be present in the Work Order Event list of that corridor and should be a "Required Event" with the "No NA Allowed" flag set. Services cannot be linked to this trigger event.

When the event has not been populated, the Revenue Recognition date is set as Pending. If the shipment has the event not set on all work orders in the shipment, the date is set as Partial. Once all the dates are set, the latest date is used as the Revenue Recognition date.

The field is available for export in all Reports under the Header section. It can also be added to any form if required.

For any questions or concerns, please contact TrakIT Support.
