Fleet Maintenance Software Spreadsheet Demo Video – Repair Codes Grouped By Equip And Year

I created a new spreadsheet for you that is like the one last week except this one also includes the equipment numbers.

In this one you will be able to see what you are spending year over year on each repair code for each piece of equipment.

The video is about 10 seconds shy of 6 minutes

In the video I also show you:

  • How to link the spreadsheet up to your live TATEMS data.
  • Where to set repair codes for parts and labor.
  • Where to find the repair code reports that are built into TATEMS

The spreadsheet can be found at:

https://tatems.com/fleetmaintenancesoftware/spreadsheets.cfm

and it is number:

84. TATEMSRepairCodeTotalsGroupedByEquipmentAndByYear

on that page.

I hope this is helpful for you.

TATEMS Update 4.6.17 preview auto backup and backup history

Here is a short under 2 minute video preview of the auto backup and backup history to be included in upcoming version 4.6.17 of TATEMS, Fleet Maintenance Software.

We are adding 2 new preferences under Tools->Preferences

“Stop asking to Backup when closing TATEMS”

and

“Always Backup when closing TATEMS”

If  they are both unchecked then when you exit TATEMS you will see the backup message displayed and you will be able to choose the backup location or accept the path that is already displayed.

If you have the first one checked and not the second one then TATEMS will close without asking you to backup.

If you choose the second one then TATEMS will auto backup every time you exit it as long as the backup path/location is available.

We are also adding the backup history to the backup form that will display all the previous backup locations, dates and the computer name that initiated the backup.

I hope you like it.

Fleet Maintenance Software Spreadsheet Demo Video – Repair Codes Grouped By Year

We just created a new spreadsheet report that links to your TATEMS data and will show you how much you have spent for each repair code for your entire fleet year over year.

Here is a video that shows you the spreadsheet and also how to link it to your TATEMS data .

I did not show it in the video but in Excel if you choose the Data tab and then click Filter you will see a dropdown appear at the top of each column.

If you click on the Repair Code dropdown you can filter to see just a single repair code and to make it easier to view year over year for just that repair code.

You could also sort by the Repair Code Column with would group repair codes for the various years together.

It is number

83 TATEMSRepairCodeTotalsGroupedByYear

at

https://tatems.com/fleetmaintenancesoftware/spreadsheets.cfm

Next I'm going to try to create one that will display each equipments totals for each year. That way you can see if any specific equipment had grown way out of whack.

You could also use the spreadsheet above to see if a particular Repair Code for a specific year looks too high and then go look it up in one of the TATEMS reports I showed you in the video.

I just shot 2 quick videos for you.

The first one shows you a new feature for upcoming version 4.6.17 that will allow you to choose the backup location (38 seconds)

The second one shows you how you will be able to resize the screen to take up more space on larger higher resolution screens. (68 seconds)

If you can't see the videos because YouTube is blocked let me know and I will put them on an alternate host.

Thanks Again
