Our prayers go out to the people of Japan and hope that things will improve soon for them.
I had a request last week to create a new spreadsheet to display the 90 Day Inspections(or user defined number of days) Due or Past Due along with the Location so that they could sort the list by Location
When I created it I also added the Deptartment or Area and the Customer fields in addition to the Location field.
This spreadsheet will link to and display the following columns fromyour TATEMS data:
Dept or Area
Date Insp Completed
Next Inspection Due
Equip Sort Order
Here is a short video to that shows you the Spreadsheet in action.
In the current version of TATEMS “4.3.00” we have added a dropdown to the Accomplished By field so you don’t have to keep typing the same person over and over again, or worry about misspellings. If you choose to add them to the dropdown you will be presented with the personnel form so you can add the new person. You also have the option to not add them to the list and they will still be logged as the accomplished by person or entity for that particular Lube Service.This very short video shows you how it works.
Is this helpful for you? By the way, I have to get a tooth pulled on Wednesday Feb 23rd at 11:30 AM PDT so I may not be available for the rest of the afternoon. Wish me luck!

It’s been a crazy couple of months for us. Our landlord stopped paying the mortgage so we had to scramble to find a new place to rent.
Luckily we found a place only about 2 blocks away from where we were so that was nice and the new place has a nice in-ground pool and spa. Something we have not had here in Las Vegas since 2004, other than the vinyl above ground pool we put up last summer. But we are finally getting settled in and happy to be at the new house.
I’ve been working on getting this new TATEMS blog up and running to make it easier to communicate with our clients, and hopefully get some guest contributors as well. If you would like to contribute an article please let me know.
I have a whole bunch of new training videos planned and a multiple new updated of versions of TATEMS planned for 2011.
New spreadsheet and video training
A few weeks back one of our clients wanted to see the quantity count of each filter installed on his fleet. So I created the spreadsheet for him that pulls the live data he needs from TATEMS.
I wanted to show you how to customize it so that you could see quantities installed, not only of particular filters, but any type of part and for any date range.
The search criteria field used is a Part Description of “Filter” and Work Order Date Requested between “1/1/2000” and “12/31/2020”. It only applies to parts/filters used in the Work Orders section of TATEMS Maintenance Software.
The video below shows you the spreadsheet in action. It also teaches you how to customize the spreadsheet; to alter what Part Description you may want to use and to how to narrow the date range.
