GPS Insight has sent over 1.27 million automated reports to our customers.
We recently made them more convenient for everyone.
The “Scheduled” reports never had certain links activated such as “create landmark from this stop” or embedded maps, due to security concerns.
We just added a “Re-run Report” feature on every report which fixes this.
Now when you open your report via email, if you want to run it “live” in the system, you just click on the link shown below:
This takes you straight to the report if you’re already logged in, or to an intermediate login screen if you are not:
Once you provide your login and password, you will be automatically shown the “live” report, which you can sort, click through links on, etc.:
Then, if you feel like sharing this report with someone else, you can click “Email Report” and share it with them:
Note that I changed the email address to mine in order to actually receive the report. Also note that once you click “Email Now” we conveniently give you a link to that email address for you to send an additional explanatory email if necessary:
And here is the emailed version of the report, which also contains the .xls, .csv, and .html versions for you to click through to if the “in line” html version isn’t enough (or if your email client doesn’t like to display html properly).
We’re always looking for good ways to make our product more useful, & it was a customer’s comment about how scheduled reports were great, but also limiting since they didn’t have the “live” feel — this is the only way to get the best of all 3 worlds — convenient (emailed nightly/weekly), powerful (live and clickable), and secure (requiring a valid login/password).
