    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

  2. I don't use the job card side of things as I'm a one man band but the ability to add vehicle mileage to an invoice would be a great help

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Two Way Emails

    two-way email communication across CarVue would also be a bonus. It would be nice to see outgoing email messages and customer replies together much the same was as SMS messaging system currently works. It would save having to keep open an email client and CarVue at the same time with communications spread between two systems.

  11. Online Booking

    our currant garage management solution provides the ability for our customers to book an MOT or Service online direct from our website directly into our diary i think it would be a great asset to carvue to be able to do the same at the moment 40% of our bookings are take online for MOT tests and after a lot of research most of the management systems on the market offer this as a option.

  13. Option to add multiple technicians on job cards

    Rather than just having a job card with one technician, having the option to assign a technician at a repair level, meaning multiple can be added to one card

  16. Service History Report

    At present if I need to look at the full history for a vehicle (I regularly need to look back to see what parts were fitted at the last service, when a car last had brake pads etc.) I need to open each previous invoice in turn until I find the information I need. Over time that's going to be a lot of invoices for high mileage vehicles. It would be very useful to have a service history report for each vehicle which lists the contents of all invoices one after the other on a single page report (with dates…

    Thank you for the suggestion Jonathan.

    It would be great to get some more ideas / information around this suggestion as depending on the vehicle this could be a lot of information display.

    Perhaps you could map out the report as you see it in terms of headings?

  17. Update mileage before creating invoice

    It's too easy to forget to update the mileage before turning the job card into a draft invoice. At the moment a box pops up and says "are you sure" when converting a job card to invoice, this should be a mileage input box or at least a reminder to check you've updated it.

  19. Terminology Options

    Need to be able to define a wider range of options as a user to make the system more internationally useful. Terminology such as MOT and VAT are not relevant and confuse our customers.

  20. Custom templates

    Having a wysiwyg template editor from within the software would be a great help. I'm using mobile devices so have no easy way to edit.
