Release notes
  • 2023 Week 32

    TransFollow Drive App
    • Limit RTI types allowed
    We limited the RTI types to make it easier for carriers to act. During configuration, submitters can set which transfer types should be excluded. This ensures that the chosen transfer options align more effectively with carriers' specific cases.
    • Indicate picture already taken
    Previously we added a feature to add a mandatary picture before signing process. In some cases that observations with an picture already taken yet not in the signing process, we have added a new checkbox where you can indicate you have already added the picture and by selecting the checkbox you are allowed to move on to the next step.
  • 2023 Week29

    TransFollow Drive App
    • Freight Documents Delivered at End UX
    To enhance the user experience, we have made adjustments to the sorting functionality. Now, you can simply check the 'Show delivered at the end' checkbox, and the updated ordering overview will appear when you press back, eliminating the need to select a different sorting section.  
    • Overview Goods Icon Redesign
    In the document overview, we have replaced the icon indicating 'The goods have been adjusted' on the freight document with a yellow tag in text format. This change makes it more clear and concise for viewers to identify. We added two new buttons in the document overview: the 'Observations' icon and the 'Open PDF' icon. Clicking on the 'Observations' icon allows you to view a preview of the added observations, while clicking on the 'Open PDF' icon directly opens the corresponding PDF file.  
    • Vehicle added to FD overview
    We added ‘Vehicle’ as a new selection in the Column options in the document overview. If clients require vehicle information, they can easily include it in the Freight Document overview by simply ticking the checkbox of 'Vehicle' in the Column options.
    • Goods Indication on observation
    The “Good Indicate” feature had been added in TransFollow App and API, allowing you to easily associate observations with specific goods. Now this feature is also available on Portal and PDF.  
    • Allow Carrier on External Signature
    It is already possible to submit a proof of transfer as a external system for the Consignor, consignee, place of taking over and place of delivery. Now we have added the option to submit an external proof of transfer for the carrier.  
    • German Language
    As the secondary language, German language is now available in PDFs.  
  • 2023 Week26

    TransFollow Drive App
    Indicate Good on Observation The “Good Indicate” feature has been added in TransFollow App, allowing you to easily associate observations with specific goods. When adding an observation, by selecting the relevant good/ADR from a dropdown menu, you can add comments and track the status of individual goods. Multiple observations can be created, and the good information will be visible on the Freight Document. This feature is currently available in both the TransFollow App and API.
    • Freight Forwarder on Transports
    We added the Freight Forwarder as a new role, allowing them to collaborate with the submitter in managing transports. The submitter can appoint a Freight Forwarder when creating a transport. Then the selected Freight Forwarder is able to edit the transport in their account and assign their carrier partner to the transport. You can add a Freight Forwarder in the Partner section. Once the transport is issued, the freight forwarder will have the visibility right. This feature is only available through the portal.
    • Search by Order Number
    We introduced a new filter – order number filter, to improve the document search performance. When the specific order number is filled in, all the Freight Documents associated with this order number will be displayed.
    • Delete Freight Document Supplement Attachment
    We enabled the option to remove supplement attachments directly within the portal. This feature allows you to rectify any mistakes made during the operation, ensuring that incorrect files can be easily removed.
    • Filters Streamlined 
    To provide a simplified experience, we have introduced a new "Filter options" menu, allowing you to select and apply specific filters according to your preferences.
    • "Sign Documents" and "Export CMR" Button Moved
    We introduced a new "Filter options" menu, allowing you to select and apply specific filters according to your preferences.

    We added transport reference and delivery mission identifier to the response object when they create a document through API.
  • 2023 Week20

    TransFollow Drive App
    • Singular Overview Mode
    We have simplified your transport overviews in the "List of Transports" by showing only the expanded view of each transport. The option to have a collapsed overview is no longer available.
    • Duplicate Multiple RTIs
    Drivers now have a quicker way to add already existing RTIs to different categories on the freight document when delivering and picking up at the same location. In the RTIs section, a duplicate button has been added per category.  
    • Separate Edit/Add Goods Permissions
    We have separated the edit and add goods permissions, allowing carriers to either edit or add goods individually. This update provides submitters (shippers) with better control over the actions carriers can perform. The same also applies to pre-defined RTIs.
    • Add Trader Identification Number to Partner
    You can now add a trader identification number to a partner not only through the portal but also via the app when adding a partner. If the selected partner already has a number, it will be automatically filled in.

    • GPS Tracking For Access Code
    Users logging in with an access code can now use the same GPS tracking functionality as if you have a regular account, to obtain more accurate location details of transports. This feature can be enabled in a pop-up window when logging in with the access code for the first time. It can also be toggled on and off via the menu in the app.
    • Shipper Can See Map/ETA
    Shippers now have better visibility of their transports as they can view the ETA and current locations of drivers in the dashboard.
    • Change Place of Delivery
    If the freight document has not been delivered yet, submitters can still change the place of delivery using a newly added button in the e-CMR preview on the portal. This function is already available in the API and has now been added to the portal as well.  
    • Show Issued Goods Amount
    If there are changes in the amount of goods and RTIs made by carriers, both the original amount and the current (edited) amount will be shown on all TransFollow platforms. This ensures that all parties are well informed about the goods updates.
    • Get PDF Base64 Encoded
    In the API, you can retrieve the PDF version of the freight document. Integrators can now request the PDF as a base64 encoded stream if needed.
  • TransFollow Drive App
    • Sort on Creation Date
    The Sorting feature is added under the Access Code login environment. Drivers can choose ‘Creation Date’ and all freight documents will be sorted from the oldest freight document to the latest. In this case, any activities or editing on freight documents will not affect this sequence of documents. TransFollow Drive App
    • Change Transference Type
    If the carrier made a mistake on an RTI (returnable transport item), now the carrier is possible to correct this by re-editing the details of the RTI and changing its Transference Type. TransFollow Drive App RTI re-editing
    • Mandatory Sign-on-Glass info
    During the Sign-on-Glass inspection, the counterparty usually needs to fill in some fields while handling the goods. We made it possible for submitters of the freight documents to decide which of the fields is mandatory for the counterparty to fill based on their different use cases.

Submitters can add new access codes after freight documents have been issued at the Portal in the document view. Once a new access code has been added, the document can be accessed through both old and new access codes.   TransFollow Portal access code
    • Attachments not redownloaded
    We improved the preload intent to have the attachment of the freight document downloaded once and then not be re-downloaded to save the data usage for TransFollow App users.
    • Webhook TLS Certificates
    We made the usage of webhook more secure by adding TLS Certificates security to Webhook functionality.
    • Remove access code
    We added the ability to delete access codes from freight documents after the transport is done or cancelled.
    We have continued optimizing our platform by fixing some minor bugs and adding some technical improvements.
    • Statistical Number for ADR
    Not only for the regular goods, but also now the statistical number has been added to ADR goods as well in the App, PDFs, and Portal.
    TransFollow Drive App
    • Scan the QR code for the access code to prevent typo mistakes
    In order to prevent the typos that drivers may make while logging in to the Drive app by filling in the access code, drivers now can log in by scanning a QR code that is provided at the site.
    • Redo Signing-on-Glass signature is possible
    It is possible now for drivers to request the counterparty to reset their signature via signing on glass, to prevent situations where signatures are incorrect or unacceptable.
    • PICK LOCATION button is added to simplify the process of freight document creation
    On the Drive app, when you create a freight document, there is a new button - PICK LOCATION added for Roles. You can fill in an address, and the GPS coordinates and other details associated to this address will be automatically filled in. It speeds up the process of creating a freight document in the app with more accurate information.
    • Observation Importance for board computer
    You can add the observation Importance in board computers when you add an observation.
    • Adjust seals/goods in ISSUED
    Submitters are now to be able to adjust seals/goods when the freight document is in the issued state.
    • Create multiple freight documents at once
    Submitters can create multiple freight documents at once in a single API request, instead of creating one freight document per request. This can give a significant performance improvement for integrations that create freight documents in a batch-like process.
    We have continued optimizing our platform by fixing some minor bugs and adding some technical improvements.
  • TransFollow Drive App
    • Add GPS coordinates
    The location presented on roles is optimized by adding GPS coordinates. When you create a freight document on the role, you can now add GPS coordinates, then the TransFollow Drive App will open up for those GPS coordinates rather than the text of the address. This applies to TransFollow Portal and via TF Connect Integrations.
    • Disable Updating Goods/RTIs individually
    The submitter can now set the options to allow carriers to edit Goods/RTIs individually. It allows submitters to have greater control over what can be adjusted and what can only be read for carriers in the operation.
    • Add observation split into 2 calls
    We fastened the way how drivers upload observations and attachments to avoid the situation of a slow internet connection. Drivers can now add observations and upload their attachments even with a bad connection without taking too long.
    • Request GPS Permission on Signing
    Not only on the TransFollow Drive App, but also on the fully TF integrated board computers, you will also get a request to ask for the location permission from the driver when starts the signing process. After the driver agreed, the data can be sent to TransFollow.
