Vehicle List Import
1. If required, you can import the vehicle details by uploading the csv file.
2. To do this, on Create a new Vehicle page and click on the Import Vehicle List, the import vehicle list pop up will display as shown below.
An alternate way to create vehicles or create vehicles in bulk!
2. When upload a file, make sure that your csv/.xlxs/.txt file MUST include the Vehicle name.
3. An example of what your file could look like to import a Vehicle list would be the below.
Note: This type of import does not allow you to ignore the first row when importing. This means you should NOT include a row with headings, otherwise that row will be imported as a vehicle itself.
Make sure that you map the columns in your file to the relevant fields in TransVirtual. When you click on the NEXT button, you will be redirect to Select you vehicle list to import, once you click on NEXT again then the list of new vehicle will appear in vehicle list.
Note: When mapping an import field you may notice that there are some fields/columns that appear in the table (seen in the above image) that are not selectable when trying to map an import file.
For example, Service Due appears in the vehicle list grid, but you are unable to map that field:
The reason for this is that this is a calculated field based on other information listed against that vehicle.
Many of the columns you can see in the vehicle itself or the vehicle list filter screen are either automatically calculated or they require additional setup; and thus are not mappable when importing a vehicle list.
From within the Vehicle List, you can double-click and open or right-click and open to view the data stored against a vehicle in further depth, the vehicle detail page will open as shown below.
There are a number of different tabs across the top of the page and each one stores different information which is outlined in the below.
1. The details tab of the vehicle provides information such as vehicle name, registration number, vehicle type etc.
2. Here is where you can place any important details of the vehicle that may need to be reviewed by other staff.
3. It is here you can also assign a vehicle to a headport at the bottom of the page.
4. This function is useful if you require drivers select a vehicle on mobile app login - drivers are typically assigned to the headport they work out of so assigning the relevant vehicles to their respective headports means that drivers can see what vehicles exist at their work location (headport).
5. The details tab will look similar to the below:
Please note that for vehicle types to be available, you will need your dictionary lists setup for vehicle types (Settings > Lists and Zones > Dictionary Lists > Vehicle Types)
It is also helpful to review the blue question marks next to certain fields, these can help you understand more of what the fields can do.
You can use this page to provide alerts of when upcoming events are occurring with the vehicle - alerts will be emailed to your nominated email address.
To see the Rego/Insurance/Alerts screen, on Vehicle Detail page, click on Rego/Insurance/Alerts tab, the Rego/Insurance/Alerts page will come, on this page you can see/edit and add the Rego/Alert as shown below.
The purpose of the alerts is to allow you the ability to setup reminders that can email you or relevant staff to inform of any important renewal notices or the like linked to your vehicles.
1. In this example, our registration is due in a couple of months, so we need to setup an alert in the Rego/Insurance/Alerts tab.
2. First, we will select the Add Rego/Alert button, then add the name of your alert and select to create.
3. Below is a list of the different alert types you can create, select the applicable one which you want to create.
4. For this example we have selected Registration in type, ensure you give the alert a Name - typically this would be the rego of the vehicle so you know what the alert links to, but it can be whatever you deem is required (something reflective of what the alert will do).
5. Now, set an Expire Date, with the help of calendar. In this example our rego is expiring on 29th December so the vehicle must be renewed before this date!
6. Set an Alert Days Prior. This is how many days before the Expire Date that the reminder email will be sent. In our example we have set to 7 meaning that the first reminder email to action the rego will be sent 7 days prior to 29/12/2023.
Ensure to click Update top-right after making any changes!
7. The alert will be sent to our accounts payable email address (Configuration> General > Global Setup > Contact Details tab) unless specified otherwise.
8. If you wish for the alert to be sent to an alternate email address, you simply need to enter and update in the Override Email (Defaults to your 'Payables') section.
9. Now, according to the alert we have set up, the accounts payable address will receive a notification of registration being due 7 days prior to the due date of 29/12/2023.
10. Ideally you will have resolved and renewed the Rego before the reminder alert email is sent but this function allows you to set a reminder in case the rego renewal is missed etc.
11. Once an alert has been 'resolved' (the Rego has been renewed), you can leave the alert there and update the Expire Date to cover the next time the rego is due for renewal - if you wish to do so.
