Events is for recording the Dates and Times for your Statement of Facts (SOF).
Creating an Event is easy, simply navigate to the Events tab and click ‘Add Event’ begin typing the Event and the system will search within the options available.
All the Events are hardcoded into a3, we do this to help give you consistency with the Events used, automatically display a Stop Time where needed, to drive numerous reports, and other features including Performancing and updating the Dashboard with actual Arrival/Departure times.
A full list of Events can be found under Reporting by running the Event Types report.
Recording Events by Terminal or Cargo
If you selected a Terminal when creating your Cargoes you will see this displayed on the Events page, you can add your individual Event under the relevant Port or individual Terminal/s.
When you come to issuing your SOF this will then give you alternative display options, including Show Terminal Name and Group Events by Terminal.
Should you be working multiple Cargoes when adding an Event you’ll have a dropdown menu ‘Cargo’, selecting this will display all Cargoes on your Appointment. If you apply Cargoes to the Events when you come to create the SOF there is again an option to Group Events, this will automatically define the Groups per the Cargoes input.
