  1. Deleted Items

    When Document is Deleted, next one created doesn't pick up the number of the deleted one, but picks the next one in sequence, which isn't ideal. As a new user, I still learn to add/edit required info, but Doc Editing is impossible after COMMIT button was hit. In some cases, additional info edition is required after doc has been created, but it is impossible to do, so Doc has to be deleted and new created

  2. Check duplicate record while adding a new record

    Hi,

    When we add a new product (inventory), the system checks the database after we click on SAVE button. It will be time saving if the system checks the product DB as we write the Product Code. Currently, we have to write all the details and click save to know this product is already added. I know we can search for the product on the products page but I believe it will be easy and convenient for the end user to know as soon as they enter a Product Code before clicking on Save button whether the product is already…

  3. Jobs Report

    Is there is a report where I can pull out all jobs done for specific period (IE Day or Week) to see details of vehicle, work done, price quoted/invoiced and parts purchased.

    To enable us to track to profit for a specific period and work done?

  6. Automatic text Mot reminders

    It would be good if the system would automatically send a text reminder to customers 28 days before the MOT expiry date.

  7. see parts purchase price when raising invoice

    Would be good to see what price you purchased the part for when compiling the invoice, so you can decide whether to offer discount against rrp etc

  9. Can you introduce tax and mot look up at the job sheet stage?

    This would help with 'upsell' if the customer has overlooked the MOT, and would help to avoid mechanics inadvertently driving untaxed cars on the road during road tests.

  10. Can you integrate with 1Link fleet management software?

    This would avoid having to replicate the work order received from 1Link. Ive spoken to them and they're all for it, they just need to work with you on this point?

  11. Sales/Profit Reports by Sales Person

    It would be great if we were able to run a report on each sales person for the amount and value of sales including gross/net profit made per sales person and be able to choose between 2 dates so we can run commission reports.

    I think it would be relatively easy to do as there is already the option when closing a sale to record the salesperson at this point

  12. At the moment you can only view tech doc after creating a job card, it would be good to view the document before hand when crebal

    At the moment (from what i can see) you can only view tech doc after creating a job card, it would be good to view the document before hand when verbally giving a quote and getting a book time to calculate pricing.

  14. Daily Labour Sales Reports

    Hello

    It would be very useful to have a date range for the labour value so we can track what is sold on a daily basis rather than just the month.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the suggestion. On the dashboard it does show a count of the number of jobs booked in for each of the next 7 days with wuick links through to the calendar.. The next 5 jobs due in are listed. Please could you let us know what other information you would like to see?

    Thanks,
    Rachel

  19. Label printing

    as we have many departments and stock levels it is a good idea to have a label printing option so parts are easy identified and the price label can be attached to the job card.

  20. The ability to spread one job card over multiple days!!

    Some jobs aren't a day long and would help for the person booking the jobs in to visually see how many days a job is taking to prevent overbooking.

    As we can't restrict how many hours the maximum day is it would be better to spread the hours over a couple of days whilst in the same job card.
