New - Enabling Permit Rollovers without Previous Payment
Some clients choose to invoice their customers for their Permit Rollovers. What happens if the client hasn't paid for the previous month when you are ready to rollover to the next month? There is a now a setting that allows Admins to decide if the previous permit must be paid before another rollover can be completed. For more information, refer to this wiki article.
New - Billing Account Setup Report
This report allows you to check if all users have billing accounts, company managers, and payment subscription settings added correctly.
New - Failed Payments Report
This report will show any automatic credit card payments that have failed in a specified date range.
New - Lot Value Report
The Lot Value Report will summarize your Lot utilization and total value of the permits sold in each lot. It is a snapshot of the lot values at the time you run it. For more information, refer to this wiki article.
New - Flag as Sent to Collections
OperationsCommander has the ability to set a flag on a violation that will allow the violation to bypass the normal collections system. This means that the violation will not be sent to MTO for lookup, be sent a Notice of Impending Conviction letter or be sent to the Provincial courts. This flag is important to allow Municipal clients to honor a clients request for a trial immediately after receiving the violation. For more information, refer to this wiki article.
New - Viewing Chalk Details by Plate
OPS-COM Admins can now view chalking details for previously chalked vehicles. This is useful in the case of a violation dispute. The GPS location, date, time and the Officer that chalked the vehicle will all be shown. For more information, refer to this wiki article.
New - Hiding Zero Dollar Violations
There is a new setting in OPS-COM. When enabled, this prevents $0.00 violations that are not warnings, from being displayed on the User Portal. These violations will still show up on the Admin portal and will show on the Report by Officer and the Violation Summary by Officer report.
New - Contextual Help Available
There are now two ways to get contextual help while working in OperationsCommander. There are links to wiki articles that you may find useful when interacting with the page. There are also Tooltip text boxes that can contain useful explanations and tips for understanding the functionality on the page. Both are activated by clicking on the relevant icon.
Updated - Setup Company Contacts
You can now setup your Billing Contact, Company Manager and the contact that receives the invoice separately in OPS-COM. There can be many Company Managers but only one Billing Contact per company. There can now be multiple contacts that receive emailed invoices. Individual users (not part of a company) can now receive invoices. For more information, refer to this wiki article.
Updated - Display the PIN on the Notice of Impending Conviction Letter
We now display the full ticket number including the PIN number on the Notice of Impending Conviction letter.
Updated - The Daily Submitted and Daily Processed Reports have been combined
These reports have a new look and feel and have been combined to allow you to choose either Submitted or Processed. It is now called the Daily Payments Report. Invoice payments are now included on this report.
Updated - Prevent Permit Release when Cancelling an Unprocessed Payment
You can now choose to "Cancel & Keep" or "Cancel & Release" a permit when cancelling an Unprocessed payment.
