60 spreadsheets and 2 quick videos

When our puppy Kiba grows up I want him to be just like the Border Collie in this video:

Pretty cool huh?

It's going to be 105 degrees here in Las Vegas today and the gas prices are holding at about $3.44 per gallon.

And now on to Today's Tip

We have now created 60 spreadsheets that will link to your TATEMS data.

I created a short video that shows you how to link to TATEMS data on a server from the Excel spreadsheets we created.

The video example uses Excel 2007:

Have a great week!

Driver History on Equipment and Selecting Work Order Labor Employees and 3 short videos

In last week's post I mentioned that my daughter collapsed a few feet away from me.

That was scary.

So to lighten it up a bit this week a bit we have a new 47 second video of our puppy Kiba up on my wife's desk.


You know how they say it's 102 degrees but it's a dry heat here in Las Vegas? Not during the monsoon season.

It's a wet heat, but when the rain hits it cools us down which is very cool. Oh ya, and gas is $3.39 a gallon at our nearby Sam's club right now.

I have never seen a fireworks finale like this video that my nephew took. His video is less than 3 minutes but you have to watch it to the end.

I posted it to our TATEMS Facebook page.

And now on to Today's Tip

Real quick video and tip today.

When you want to add a driver to the Driver History for a piece of equipment you have to make sure they are setup as a driver in the personnel file.

Otherwise they won't show up in the list of available drivers.

To do that, click on Forms->Personnel

Then choose the employee and then make sure the driver box is checked.

By the same token, when adding Labor to a Work Order the employee must be setup as a Fleet Technician in the personnel file for them to show up in the Labor Dropdown
as an available employee.

I hope this tip has been helpful for you.

If you need help with anything please send an email or give us a call.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks Again
