    Carol Bosma added the idea vehicles assigned to a trip included on reports other than detailed

    • Dave KornegayI agree, Carol. A Trip Detail Report can be overkill. I will place on a report to our program managers an idea to review if having a space that concatenates the vehicle IDs is an option.

    Carol Bosma added the idea adding check boxes to options for reports

    i think you should add check boxes so we can customize what we need to see on our own reports. One report doesn't fit all. In trip report there is no choice to show the assigned vehicles scheduled on your trip other than on a detailed report of the ...
