Purpose

The Vehicle Activity Report displays all scheduled pickups and drop-offs for a selected location and date range. Included in the report is the reservation number, date, time, vehicle category, registration number, customer, colour, any items supplied and arrival or departure details. 

From the report, you can update the reservation and change the status to Hired or Returned thereby checking out or checking in the vehicle directly from the report. When you have finished the check out or check in process the activity report will automatically refresh and display only the remaining pickups and drop-offs. This is the most efficient screen to process scheduled pickups and drop-offs from. 

You may also change the renting customer for a booking which is not yet Hired, and view the notes attached to each pickup or drop off. For unallocated bookings, you can also allocate a vehicle directly from this report.

Accessing the Report

You can access this report by following the steps, Reports > Daily Activity Reports > Vehicle Activity Report.


Parameters

The following is a listing of the parameters for this report.

Can be run for ‘All Locations’ or a Selected Location

Date Range

The Date range entered will be used to find the bookings with either a pickup or a drop off which fall within the Date Range entered.

Vehicle Category

You can run this report for “All Categories” or for a specific Vehicle Category.

Include Activity

You have two options to choose from here.

  • All Activity – Choosing this option will return all bookings as long as they have not been cancelled and they fall within the date range entered.
  • Current Activity – Choosing this option will only return bookings where the status is Reservation or it is a Maintenance booking which has not been closed yet and they fall within the date range entered.

Pickup/Drop off List

You can choose from three options here.

  • Pickup and Drop off list
  • Pickups only
  • Drop offs only

Include/Exclude Balance

You can choose to either include or exclude the balance of the bookings on this report.

You can choose to either include or exclude the notes on this report.

Non-Revenue/Maintenance Bookings

If you select this option, you can choose to exclude the Non-Revenue and Maintenance bookings from this report.


You can also choose whether to include unallocated bookings in this report or not. This is done as a System Parameter rather than a Report Parameter. You can access the System Parameters under the System Setup menu. Below is an image showing the System Parameter in question. It is called “Unallocated booking in Vehicle Activity Report”. If it is set to “Yes”, then unallocated bookings will be included in the report results.


Example

The following image shows the report when it has been run to show the Pickup/Drop off list, and also to include both the balance and the notes. The System Parameter has also been set to include unallocated bookings. You can see that the unallocated bookings are displayed first.
