How to create a report on your phone
To create a report from your phone, tap on the Report icon on the app's home screen.
If this is the first report you are creating, you’ll go right to the "Generate report" screen.
You can create your custom report by selecting the vehicle, date interval, trip type and workplace. You can also choose whether or not to include your odometer readings within reports (keep in mind, it may not be a requirement in your country). Once you create a report it will be saved under "My reports".
After creating your first report, you can create more from the "Report" tab in the app by tapping + Create report.
Once you create your report, tap Save and view, then choose either to Send or Download.
You can share your report directly through the app; just tap Send, enter the recipient's email and write a short note.
When you select Download, you’ll be given a choice between downloading your report as either a PDF or Excel file. You will then be able to save the document, attach it to an email or print it from your computer.
