Update Vehicle Current Status Tab


Rental Car Manager allows you to directly update a single vehicle's status from the Update Vehicle Current Status submenu (see Fig. 68). However, the items that can be updated from this submenu are limited to the vehicle's cleaned status, current fuel level, current mileage, and current location


This program is normally used by your car detailer or cleaner.  It allows essential information relating to cleanliness, fuel level, mileage and location to be updated before the vehicle is hired. The 'cleaned' status is also displayed on the Vehicle Activity Report allowing the counter operator to confirm that the car has been detailed and ready for hire.

The vehicle record to be updated should already have been added to Rental Car Manager from the Vehicle Update submenu. To know more about adding a vehicle record to Rental Car Manager, see Vehicle Update.


A more complete update of vehicle status can also be performed from the Vehicle Update submenu.
