Vehicle and asset profile

The Vehicle profile pages have now been updated and now store and display information on both vehicles and assets

Some fields are updated automatically from either vehicle unit (VU) uploads where FTA tacho analysis is taken or vehicle inspections where FTA vehicle inspection services (VIS) is taken.

Other fields can also be updated through the asset generic import.

A few fields are editable on the profile screen itself

Please contact tachosupport@fta.co.uk to enable the permission to allow you update these fields.

Each profile is accessed by clicking on the relevant icon adjacent to the registration number column. The profile will immediately open to display full details of that asset:



The icon will vary depending on the type of asset it represents


 Asset types

This will be updated automatically if the vehicle is inspected by FTA vehicle inspection services (VIS), or can be added through the asset generic import. If the asset already exists on Vision as a result of being added through a VU upload, then the asset type will remain blank. You can update the asset type on the profile page by selecting an option from the drop down.

Asset types available are:

  •  Heavy goods vehicle
  •  Light commercial vehicle
  • Public service vehicle
  • Trailer
  • Lift Truck
  • Dangerous substance tanker
  • Tail lift
  • Winch
  • Crane


New vehicles uploaded and allocated from the Holding area will only have HGV, LCV and PSV options available

Please note: The fields available within the profile will vary according to the asset type selected the example below is for a heavy goods vehicle.
 
Registration
This will be updated automatically if the vehicle is inspected by FTA vehicle inspection services (VIS), or the VU is uploaded, or can be added through the asset generic import.

Location
This will be updated automatically if the vehicle is inspected by FTA vehicle inspection services (VIS), or the VU is uploaded for tachograph analysis, or can be added through the asset generic import. This field is editable on the profile page and can be updated by selecting a location from the dropdown.

BE AWARE- if you change a location for a vehicle that has FTA tachograph analysis the VU will need to be uploaded from the new location before the data is displayed on upload reports.

Asset ownership
Previously known as “Vehicle type”. This will be updated as part of the VU import, or vehicle inspection or through the asset generic import. This is also editable on the profile screen.

  •  Owned- Core vehicles that already exist on Vision will now be shown as owned
  •  Hired- Hire vehicles that already exist on Vision will continue to be shown as Hire
  •  Loaned
  •  Leased
  •  Sold
  •  Returned to lender


These are also available as search options in the new Manage my fleet pages but NOT the Manage my vehicle pages

Asset status
This is updated as part of the VU import process. Vehicles added as part of the Asset generic import or vehicle inspections will be added as active. This is an editable field and can be changed by using the drop down option

  • Active- Active vehicles that already exist on Vision will continue to be shown as active
  • Inactive- Inactive vehicles that already exist on Vision will continue to be shown as inactive
  • Vehicle off road (VOR)- Away vehicles that already exist on Vision will be shown as vehicle off road
  • VOR- when the status is changed to VOR on the asset profile screen you will be prompted to add a reason.

This field must be completed.



Once these changes have been saved you will see an audit displayed on screen



Once the vehicle is made active again then an end date of the VOR will be displayed
