Drivers Journal - give feedback

Wed Nov 23, 2011 4:43 pm

Drivers Journal - give feedback

We are currently implementing a Drivers Journal plug-in for GpsGate Server.

The drivers journal is an alternative to the traditional trip report. Here the driver of the vehicle can categorize his trips (e.g. separate business trips from private trips) and add a description to each trip for travel justification.

You will be able to choose what trips from a vehicle to include in the journal and he journal can be exported for documentation purposes.

Please give us your feedback and specific requests in this area for us to consider. Post a reply in this topic or send info to support@gpsgate.com

Note that this is a forward looking statement and some things may change. We are therefore not committing to any requested functionality at this point in time.


Regards,
Henrik

Hi,

My requirements are as follows :

1. Select Trip as either Business or Private
2. Give report on total km's traveled for Business/Private during a certain period.
3. Green Driving, pre-input the amount of CO2 released per km for that type of vehicle, multiply the CO2/km with distance traveled and give a summary of the CO2 released for that trip.

Hi.

This is a great initiative. I think the option to be able to interface with the drivers journal using a mobile interface / app is important. Drivers should be able to mark trips as private/business, make a comment on the purpose of the trip etc and approve for further processing.

Best Regards,
Oyvind

Possibility to differ driver from passenger. This would be great for mobility fee, drivers receive a bigger fee than the ones that are just sitting next to him.

For reports, select default setting as either business or private so you can make a weekend, night report with default privat and one report for 8-17 marked as buissnes.
And of course possibility to change label for each trip and make comments.

Hi Oyvind and everyone else,

We are finalizing the functionality for the first version, thank you all for your feedback so far. We have not yet set a date but I estimate this to be released in a couple of months.

Great news Henrik!

Can you give a very brief statement of what core functionality you expect to be included in the first version?

Thanks again!

Hi Oyvind, the following functionality is planned for the initial release:

With a visual trip selector users can show the trips on a map as they are selected for a journal. A description/justification can be added to a journal entry and it can be categorized as business or private. Multiple trips can be merged to one journal entry. Journal entries can be edited by users also after they have been created. An Odometer is included in the journal and vehicle mileage is calculated per category and as a total. The GpsGate Reporting framework is used to create Driver Journal reports.

I understand if you would like to have more information, so I will contact you when we start beta testing.

Regards,

Henrik

Thank you for the update.

We have customers patiently waiting for the option. The functionality you specify sounds sufficient for an initial release. If you haven't included it already, we will consider the possibility to build a mobile app to interface with this functionality.

Do you dare to indicate when we can expect a beta?
