Auto Selection of Service Intervals Data From Autodata

Auto selection from Autodata, is available for the Great Britain, Northern Ireland and Ireland Markets. To view and add the data:

  1. Open the Jobsheet or document (can be a Jobsheet, Estimate, or Vehicle Inspection Estimate) for the vehicle and click on Lookup followed by Service Interval Matrix in the menu bar.

  2. When the pop-up window opens, confirm the vehicle details by clicking Yes. If the details don’t match, click No and re-enter the correct details in the document.

  3. The service intervals are presented in a grid format with miles and months on the left and items to be changed at the top. A tick at the intersection indicates what needs to be changed and when it needs to be changed.
  4. Click the tick box in the Include column to select the items that need to be added to the document. Then, click Next from the menu bar.

  5. In the next window, you can deselect the Transfer Lines to Document checkbox to exclude some lines from the transfer (if you don’t want to include everything).

  6. Click Add Lines to Document in the menu bar to add lines to the document. The lines will be grouped under the Interval Change heading.

  7. Another option is to create a vehicle inspection by clicking on Create Vehicle Inspection from the menu bar. This initiates the process of confirming everything and creating a quotation for the customer.
