New Features and Enhancements
Selecting the Measurement Units for Reports
On the Reports page, click either Imperial System or Metric System. The option you choose will be used on all reports that you run until it is changed.
Generating the Trip Details Report
Omnitracs Tax Manager has a new Trip Details report that shows every recorded position of a vehicle, so that in the event of an audit you can provide a bread crumb trail to display where the vehicle traveled through during a selected period of time. The report includes the vehicle ID, the date and time when the Telematics device logged the position of the vehicle, the latitude, longitude, and a description of the vehicle's position, the jurisdiction the vehicle was in at the time and the odometer reading.
- On the menu click Reports. The Reports page opens.
- Click Trip Details Report. The Trip Details Preview opens.
- Click the Settings icon to open the Filters. Choose the Start Date, End Date, and Vehicle ID for the report.
- Click [Generate]. The report is generated and displayed on the screen.
Note: If the date range you select has a very large number of records, you may receive the following error:
Http failure response for https://one-api.omnitracsone.com/rep...reports:search: 429 OK
If you receive this error, reduce the date range and generate the report.
- To export the report to a .csv, click [Export CSV].
To export the report to a pdf, click [Export PDF].
Updates to the User Interface
Several changes were made to the user interface to make Tax Manager easier to use.
- Horizontal and vertical scroll bars were added to the screen so you can easily navigate through the items. When you scroll down a list of items, the header remains visible to help keep track of what the data represents as you scroll.
- As you resize the window, the grids and menus adjust accordingly. When the window becomes small enough that the menu no longer fits across the screen, the menu options condense under a hamburger menu so that they are still accessible.
