In the penultimate part of this series, Bosch outlines how to save your work for future reference or how to share it with customers as a Protocol.
A really helpful feature of ESI Truck is the ability to save key data as you work to be able to have a record of your work on the vehicle either for future use or to share with the customer to show what has been done to the vehicle and, more importantly, why.
As you work through the diagnostic process, occasionally there will be a Save button at the bottom of the screen (Fig. 1). This could be when reading fault codes, monitoring actual values, recording live data or following a maintenance schedule. Clicking this Save button will add the data onto a customer-friendly printout and will be held in the ESI Truck system for future reference.
The Protocols button will present a screen where all of this information can be viewed (Fig. 2). Simply choose which type of information you would like to see and then select the vehicle in question. At this point, you must enter your workshop data if you haven’t already done so, so that the protocol can be produced professionally. You can also edit the customer data to make the report customer specific and for you to keep track of which protocol (Fig. 3 & 4), maintenance schedule (Fig. 5 & 6) or recording (Fig. 7 & 8) is for which vehicle.
Each tab within the Protocols menu will show what is available depending on what actions you have performed on each vehicle.
