At the end of the day today, a new recap uploader will go live in the recap page. This fixes a bug in Safari for Windows and Mac, and improves the recap image upload process. This update requires flash to be installed on your system. If it's not, you will be directed to a site where you can download and install a plugin for your web browser.
Log Reports "Select Production" drop down updated to auto-select the last production open in the captain's report.
Compliance Percentage Update
As of Monday, July 12th, the HOS and document compliance percentages within the log reports will be combined into one overall compliance percentage. This will provide a more accurate representation of your shows compliance with DOT regulation.
Now including off-duty day form and manner errors in driver percentage on log reports.
Updated the captain's report and recap "Add Driver" process, and replaced action links within the captain's report with buttons for user interface clarification.
Added new Missing Log Notification system to the driver report. When missing logs are present on a driver level report, clicking on the "Missing Log Notification" link near the top right corner of the report will generate the notification as a pdf.
Added new Driver Notification system to the driver report. When viewing a log image, the print button in the log viewer window acts as a driver notification generator. Driver notifications are created as two page pdf's with the first page consisting of the log image, and the second page consisting of the HOS and form and manner violations.
Fixed minor bug with recap images in the log reports.
Added a supporting document percentage column to the log reports. This percentage does not affect your shows percentage of compliance, or your standings in the 100% club.
Improved the 7 day recap "Search List" by adding missing recap, and image status indicators. Enabled recap deletions, and changes for all users. Recap images will be deleted and flagged as missing until a new image is uploaded when hours are changed to ensure consistency within the system.
Note: The driver letter has been temporarily disabled in preparation for upgrades. In the mean time, disciplinary letters can be attached to printouts of the driver report as a substitute.
Recap PDF Update
PDF uploads within the recap system are back online. Starting today, we are accepting pdf images of recaps for storage.
Log Reports 2.0 Beta
We are proud to announce a new version of the log reports, 2.0!! The new reports achieve faster load times, and implement a new quick-look feature to help you locate and correct violations faster.
Quick-look for viewing log images and violations by hovering over the number or date of a particular row (driver report only).
A faster reporting framework, completely re-written and implemented in both the production report, and driver report.
Merging of the driver history and log level report into the driver report to keep the number of reporting layouts that have to be viewed at a minimum.
The ability to view the 7 days prior, and 3 days following the current reporting scope.
Turnaround violations are separated into 8 and 10 hour violations.
Non-Dot violation counts shown in gray (do not affect percentage).
New color-coded rows indicating anonymous information for other productions, and other employers.
Built-in Recap viewer accessible directly from the driver report for viewing recap hours images.
We will be releasing a new set of log report tutorials in the near future. Until then, if you have any questions about the new reports, please send an email to Max or Drew.
Added "Unit" Column to Captains Report to allow tracking of drivers unit number or status. Field allows four alphanumeric characters.
Changed Captain's report total hours by removing the assumed half hour for lunch, resulting in the total hours reflecting the number of hours between the in time, and out time.
Upgraded recap system to provide pdf forms for printing and driver completion. Adobe reader is required for this update. Most systems come with adobe reader pre-installed, but there is also a link below to download and install it on your system.
Added "Recap Required" rows to captains report to indicate days where recaps and pre-employment recaps are required.
Added Recap button to toolbar.
Fixed Captain's Report bug involving date and show selection.

Added driver's name to printed recap forms.
Added missing signature checks to non-regulated log rows.
Added non-DOT violation 70/80 counts to production report. For example "2 / 0" indicates two instances of more than 70 hours in the past 8 days, and 0 instances of more than 80 hours in the past 8 days.
Added "day" to the Captain's Report Tabs (ex: "Sun - 5/10/09").

Added the ability to click on the "X" or check mark in the captains report and recap comparison columns of the driver report to be redirected to the document in question (captain's report or recap image).
Reports layout changed. Moved all hours of service violations to the left, and all form and manner errors to the right (in order of severity).

Production and Driver level violation reports have been updated to include only information from the production selected. We are currently testing this "live" update. If you experience any inconsistencies, please give us a call.
As you can see, we have completely rebuilt our website! To get started, enter your username and password in the fields to the right and you will be directed to the home or "HUB". From there, you can choose to go to the captain's report, MVR, or you can pick a production and scope to go to the log reports.
We are still making updates to various areas within the site, and looking for feedback on any bugs you may run into. If anything isn't acting the way its supposed to, please call the office (818.792.4135)
We appreciate your support!
