We have had a few customers ask for the ability to report on their drivers’ activities throughout the day.
One needed to count the number of passengers picked up.
One needed to count the number of mobile blood draws and mobile x-rays performed.
So we advised them to enter these numbers into the Garmin in their vehicle.
By doing so, with a space between the various numbers, we now allow them to report on the number of “activities” throughout the day/week/month.
They simply enter the # on their Garmin, and it shows up like this in a report
This report shows the number of “draws” and “Xrays” performed, as input by the driver into the Garmin.
If you wanted to show it by day (then export into Excel, for instance) you would check the “Daily” box shown in this report below:
This then breaks it out by day (and you can run up to 31 days currently):
If you want to see exactly when the driver performed this, you can simply run a stop-notes report as shown below:
This shows each stop’s detail, along with the entry by the driver stating how many of a “thing” he or she did:
Generically, we simply call these “Tally 1”, “Tally 2”, and “Tally 3” — but if you want to let us know what your numbers mean (and in which order), then we will label them for your account so they show up more meaningfully in reports for you.
Then you can run your own simple analysis on this data within Excel, create graphs, etc:
As always, we’re open for new ideas, and happy, willing, and QUICK to put these features into GPS Insight for your and other customers’ use.
