I hope your week is going well and if you’re in a cold part of the country or world that you’re keeping warm. Sorry I was too sick last week to create a blog post but I’m finally starting to feel a little better so here goes…
We have had numerous requests come in for TATEMS to automatically show lower interval Lube/Services aka PM’s as being completed when you enter a higher interval Lube/Service.
Let’s say you have a truck with Lube/Service type called 5000 Mile Oil Change with an interval of every 5000 miles. You also have a Lube/Service 25000 miles Major with 25000 mile interval.
Currently when you enter the 25000 Mile Major you would also have to manually enter the 5000 Mile Oil Change.
With the next version upgrade release of TATEMS we have added something new. It’s a new window that will pop-up in the scenario above and display any lower interval Lube/Services for that equipment and allow you choose any or all of them to be automatically entered.
It will also add some text in the lower interval entry in the Notes/Other field that says “Completed during 25000 Mile Major Lube/Service”
This takes those lower interval Lube/services off the reminders popup for you and shows them as completed in the Lube/Service tab.
Just in case you don’t want to see the pop up window asking you if you want to add those lower interval Lube/Services, we had added two check boxes to the Misc User Preferences screen under the tools menu. The first check box says: “Stop Asking to Add Lover Interval Lube Services” and the one below it says: “Always Add Lower Interval Lube Services”.
Does that make sense?
Once I have the new version ready, hopefully in the next few days, I’ll make a video of the feature in action along with some of the other things we’ve added or improved.
Thanks Again and Take Care
I hope you are doing well this week. Well my wife Karen and my daughter Kelly made it back here to Las Vegas. Their road trip to see my Mother in-law in Arkansas went great. The only hitch was a nail in the tire sidewall that caused them to get a late start home.
They also ran into a snow storm on the way back starting about an hour outside Of Gallup, New Mexico.
Here’s a couple of pictures:
Obviously , nothing like what the folks back east or up north have been experiencing.
So I discovered this really cool software that will let you speed up (or slow down) videos. I take quite a few video courses myself and have found this to be a huge time saver. There are 2 programs actually. The first one is free and it requires you to download the video To your computer before you play it. And the second one is under $30 and it allows you to speed up videos that are playing right in your internet browser.
I made a quick demo video of each one below.
The free one that requires you to download your video is called VLC Media Player and you can get it here
The one that costs under $30 has a 7 day free trial and is called MySpeed by Enounce. You can get it here:
