What is a DNTT?
The DNTT feature allows administrators to place a condition on a vehicle that will warn officers in the field not to ticket or tow a vehicle.
This is useful in many situations.
For example: A photographer on assignment is photographing different buildings on campus over a series of days. An admininstrator could register their vehicle and apply a DNTT for the days of their assignment on campus. No matter where they go on campus, they would be able to park without getting ticketed or towed.
Example 2: The Dean of the School is traveling around the campus for a special event. A DNTT can be applied to his vehicle so that for the time frame of the event he can park outside of his regular lot without penalty. This is what we affectionately refer to as the Anti Embarrassment feature of the tool.
Setting up a DNTT
Go to the user's profile and select the Vehicles tab.
Select the vehicle of interest by clicking the Add DNTT link.
Select Time Frame
Set up for a temporary time frame by choosing a From Date and time and a To Date and time.
In this case, the Vehicle with Plate JROCK has a DNTT in the Administration building area lasting from Midnight July 21st to 23:59 the same day.
A new location could be configured or added to the system that reads Campus Wide, which would tell officers the vehicle can park anywhere on campus without penalty during the duration of the DNTT time frame.
Accessing the DNTT information from the user profile
- Go back to the user's vehicles tab.
- Click on Edit DNTT

Search for DNTT Records
Enter the date range you want to search, and the number of instances and click the Search button.
When a number is entered in the 'Number of Instances' field, the report will return users with that number of incidents or more.
For example, if you enter 2, the report is going to list users who have had 2 or more DNTT permissions granted in that time frame.
The report requires the admin to have the manage vehicle permission with their role found under system config.
