The Search by Plate option under User Management allows Administrators to locate vehicles, and view the user, vehicle details, and violations associated with a license plate.

Search by Plate Menu Option

Hover over the 'User Management' icon and then Vehicles. Click 'Search by Plate'.

The 'Search By Plate' screen displays.
In this interface you can search for a specific plate or you can enter a vehicle desription.

Possible Serach criteria:

Plate: You can serach by the full plate number or a partial number (see fuzzy search below)
Make: Vehicle Make (Such as Honda, Ford, Tesla, etc)
Type: Vehicle type (Such as hatchback, sports car, compact)

Search by Plate Report

A list of all users that have matching plate information is returned below the 'Search' box.

Search by Vehicle Description

If we do not know the vehicles plate number we can search by vehicle description. In this example we are looking for a Grey Ford Hatchback.

Performing a Fuzzy Search

In this example we only have a partial plate and a description. WE can toggle on Perform Fuzzy Search where the system will list vehicles that meet these partial bits of data. IN the following example the officer only caught a partial plate of an individual speeding on campus (Plate: APVK???, Colour: Grey, Type: Hatchback) and wishes to issue a warning.

Note the APVK189 plate appears as well as Pay Station instance for APVK123 where it has found the APVK via fuzzy search.
