New Release with extended features in the Working Time Reports (01.12.2015)
(1) Parameter for Working Time driver and infringement reports
In order to allow customized reporting due to individual requirements for the working time infringement reports, various parameters have been defined to configure the reports. The values can be defined by customer and fleet/deport, whereby parameters for the fleet(s) will have the priority.
(2) Working Time „Driver Reports“:
The existing reports have been redesigned to allow for the individual working time parameters by customer or fleet/depot. The overall design also has been improved, with the result, that more information is shown. One example is “Duty start” and “Duty end”.
(3) Working Time „Infringements“
The Infringement report has also been adopted to allow for using the individual working time parameters. Within the reports all missing driver times are marked with an „?“. These entries should have been entered by the driver as a post entry in the digital tachograph. The reports considers these missing entries as resting time. In addition the information on “Duty start” and “Duty end” is provided, also the night working rules are taken into account.
(4) Live – Display of speeding infringements
