Updated: Sep 6, 2022
Throughout August, the Traffio developers have been hard at work introducing new features within the portal. A higher access level has been introduced to allow upper management further permissions. This includes the new 'estimated revenue report' that allows users to see the estimated revenue on any given day for bookings that haven't been invoiced out yet. Old projects that have lapsed can now be archived by setting the project to inactive to avoid jobs being booked in old projects. Conversations that you've had with your clients are now able to be logged within the portal. This log allows for clearer communication with your employees through creating notes about conversations relating to clients, projects, or client contacts.
An “Administrator” access level has been added to Traffio. This is the highest access level that someone can have in Traffio. This level was added in relation to the new financial reports that were added into Traffio. This administrator access has the authority to see and grant permission for others to see these business revenue reports. To avoid the system granting this access inappropriately, employees with manager access did not automatically have this access given to them. Alternatively, we encourage you to reach out so we are able to grant this access to the appropriate people within your business.
In conduction with the new traffio access level, an ‘Estimated revenue report’ has been added to the system. Only people with the ‘Estimated revenue report access’ permission can access this report. This access can only be given out by employees with ‘Administrator’ access. Contact Traffio to be granted this access if no one in your business currently has this access level.
This report works by running bookings for a chosen period through the billing engine and summing totals of billable items. Only bookings without existing invoices or that don’t last longer than 24 hours are factored into this report currently. During this process, no invoices are created.
This is the first version of this report and further development is planned further down the track after feedback from users.
Project is active
Projects have been given the ability to be made inactive. Within projects, there is a toggle that you can switch off to archive old bookings that have been completed. Toggling this off will put a cross with the ‘Is active’ column and remove the ability for bookings to be created for this project. Within the project list, there is also a new ‘Active project’ filter this filter allows you to filter out any inactive projects from your view.
A new simple CRM tool has been now part of Traffio. Located on the side panel, the conversations tab is accessible for every employee with office staff or high access within Traffio. Within this area is the conversations log and a conversation methods area. This feature allows you to log conversations that you have had with your clients, this log gives you the ability to record these conversations against specific clients, projects or specific client contacts.

Within the Conversations method section, you're able to create bespoke conversation methods specific to your company these may include things like booking inquiries or invoice payment reminders.
Tags linked to these conversations along you to set an outcome of the conversation. Generic conversation tags have been added to the system with the ability to create more and set an icon in the tags area in the admin.
Added ability to mark equipment as 'Already on site' by clicking the piece of equipment on the booking board and selecting 'Already On Site'. This functionality is not available to equipment that is attached to a vehicle and will be automatically unmarked if dragged onto a vehicle.
The bookings board now displays two weeks' worth of work hours for each person.
Added travel time to the person dockets report.
Added depot arrive, leave and return times to the columns available to be exported using an export template.
Docket notes were added to the full export of the 'Person Dockets' report.
Added vehicle ID to the table view of the Envision bulk upload (vehicle) report.
Updated 'Non-driver allow.' column to the pay run 'Overrides' screen. It will now also show as pale yellow if the current value does not match the automatically calculated value for the allowance.
The 'Travel allow.' column on the 'Overrides' screen will now show pale yellow if the current value does not match the automatically calculated value.
When measured from the depot, distance-based allowances are calculated from the person's home depot as opposed to the booking's depot. Effectively, this only changes results for people who are scheduled 'from another depot' on the booking board.
Added ability to reissue finalised invoices without having to generate the invoice from bookings again. See the 'Reissue and Credit' button on any finalised invoice. Note: If you reissue a merged invoice, the reissued invoice cannot be unmerged.
Added mobile worksite addresses to the descriptions on invoice line items when generating an invoice.
You may now choose icons to go with your tags and conversations. The drop-down list contains an extensive list that must be searched.
