2022 Release Notes

2022 Release Notes

12/20/2022 – System Improvements


  • DVI/WO/QC – Videos can now be downloaded from any worksheet. This is done by opening the video and clicking the new download button on the upper right of the video preview window.
  • DVI – Sub-status pre-defined notes are no longer clipped with a “…” in mobile view. Beware, VERY long notes might get ugly, but users will no longer have to guess!
  • iDVI – Remove Category level video for warranty company usage.
  • MSO Master Shop – New ability to manage users for all locations from one location. This is another key ability for streamlining multi-shop operation manageability in the tool.
  • Slack – We’ve added a webhook for slack to include parameters in the body that slack can use. In this release, we can post status updates to slack.
  • Calendar v2 – List view phase 1 is out! This is an updated view that spotlights new pieces of data all consolidated on a single view. Check out the new List Day tab in the list view, or view it with the whole week or month. The format should help manage daytime activity a little more clearly.
  • Calendar v2 Pt.2 – We’ve added more color tags to the Calendar so you more clearly label certain tickets or priorities.
  • DVI PDF – We cleaned up the PDF view and move images from vertical to horizontal.

Bug Fixes:

  • WO – Prevent shop close time from being set at 12:00 am, which causes issues with WO clocks.
  • Protractor – The mileage entry on the dashboard needs to push to Protractor. It wasn’t, now it is!
  • Protractor – History search will now include package descriptions properly.
  • TechFlow – The Text Manager alert isn’t appearing on the Text manager button on Techflow the way it does on the ACP. Now it will turn orange when texts come in.
  • DVI Duplication – The button for DVI duplication was not working, forcing several users to export and import instead. Now the duplicate button works for everyone once again!
  • AI Text Response – Improved some of the parameters for specific triggers.

11/15/2022 – System Improvements


  • DVI – Vehicle Notes and Visit notes are more clearly indicated to prevent confusion on which fields are permanent, and which are not.
  • Client Connection – Tireshop and Mitchell1 shops are now benefiting from greater efficiency with our re-vised client connection.
  • Communication Preferences Part 1 – We’ve created a new tab on the customer microsite that allows a customer to toggle specific types of messaging for various updates by text/email. Presently this lives on the microsite when sharing a DVI, WO, or QC sheet with a client.
  • Communication Preferences Part 2 – Add messaging opt in/out button for status updates for appointments in Kiosk. Kiosk also received a link to a coms preference page.
  • Communication Preferences Part 3 – The client profile page has been cleaned up to match the preferences that customers will see.
  • TechFlow – Tech columns can now be sorted in any order. (no longer just alphabetical!) The sort order can now be adjusted by using the “Tech Order” button on the upper right corner of TechFlow.
  • DVI Send Time – The service advisors send time in the DVI Report now only considers company business hours. (It won’t count the time the shop is closed)

Bug Fixes:

  • Quality Control – An issue that occasionally prevented the DVI-addressed items from popping up on QC has been corrected. Affected users should no longer need to submit twice to see the popup.
  • Quality Control – N/A items were being erroneously counted as issues. Now they are not.
  • Work Order – Efficiency times were not being reflected accurately when manually updating a job work time. Now they are.
  • DVI PDF – Images in the PDF related to the RVH were not appearing correctly. Now they are.
  • Daily/Weekly Stats – Group sheets were affecting the accuracy of daily/weekly email reports. This has been corrected.
  • TechFlow – A bug causing work completion to be undone when moving some cards to unassigned has been corrected.
  • Apostrophes – The war with apostrophes entered a new phase after rebel characters were removed from the quick add modal. Good punctuation can now resume normal operations and double encoding crackdowns will continue.

10/25/2022 – System Improvements


  • Reporting – Workflow and Work Order reports have been re-written. Reporting metrics will look similar to our users, but the reports should perform better. With this update we can look forward to additional enhancements!
  • DVI Sheet Setup – Sub statuses can now be imported, exported, and duplicated along with DVI line items, notes, and recommendations. The sub-statuses are improving DVI times. Try them out!
  • MSO Management – Our team now has additional tools to create a super-admin login for multi-shop operators that want a single login to navigate their shops. This can be requested at support@Autoflow.com or through our training staff.
  • Client Connection – We’ve updated our client connection and phased the rollout. HITS and Protractor have been migrated to this new version in this release.

iDVI Enhancements:

  • iDVI API’s – We have added API’s specific to iDVI to allow Integrators to able to create an iDVI inspection request, dispatch that request to the repair facility, get real time inspection status notifications, and retrieve the inspection results all through the iDVI API’s.
  • Initiate Email – We have added the ability for Claims Adjusters to launch the windows default email client and insert the Service Advisor email to draft and send an email to the repair facility. This eliminates unnecessary clicks and improves adjuster productivity.
  • Today’s Stats for iDVI – The Today’s Stats have been modified to be more aligned with iDVI usage.
  • Hide Claim # – The claim number has been removed from any text and/or email to the repair facility.
  • iDVI Inspection Email – We have given the iDVI Inspection request email to the repair facility a bit of a face lift to include more details and clear confusion.
  • iDVI Workflow Report – The workflow report has been reworked to include claim number. We also removed some columns that were not relevant to iDVI usage.
  • Duplicate Inspection Requests – We have added logic to notify Adjusters when a duplicate iDVI request is being sent based on claim number.

Bug Fixes:

  • Calendar – The list view on tablets was showing tooltips incorrectly. These have been addressed.
  • DVI Notes Setup – DVI Notes setup was not displaying notes if the browser was zoomed in. This is corrected.
  • Tech View – The active customer page was not updating the appointment counter on the “all” tab. This counter is once again correct.
  • Add Customer – Using a comma in the odometer field broke the modal. Punctuation is no longer punished.
  • Vehicle Profile Images – The time stamp on the tagged image’s profile image showed the time and date the tagging occurred, not the time and date of the actual upload.
  • TechFlow – The Search function was inoperative for searches for some parameters. Search now allows all searchable parameters to be queried.
  • iDVI Report – We have fixed a bug that was not counting images and videos in the iDVI report.
  • iDVI Motorcycle Tire Inspection – FIxed a broken link concerning the rear tire in the Tire Inspection.

8/19/2022 – System Improvements


  • Tekmetric Job to DVI Sheet Mapping – Tekmetric users can now link a Job in TM to automatically select a linked inspection sheet on visit creation. This helps technicians complete the intended inspection rather than mistakenly completing a different sheet.
  • Omnique Mileage Update – Omnique users will now see that mileage entered on the Autoflow DVI, Work Order, or QC will now push the updated mileage back to Omnique.
  • Customer Search by VIN – Users can now search customer history visits by using the VIN number as a search term.
  • Techflow – The ever popular Text Manager can now be accessed from the Techflow screen.
  • Architecture Updates – We have updated PHP on our servers. What is PHP you ask? It is quite technical, but the simple answer is that it is one of the core web languages used by Autoflow. Why is it important? Staying up to date allows for increased system performance and ensures the safety and integrity of data. While the gains may be minimal, very small fractions of a second, they are significant when observed at scale. Simply put….It allows us to be bigger, faster, and stronger!

iDVI Enhancements:

  • UI/UX Enhancements – We have continued improving the user experience by streamlining the most common screens in iDVI to be better aligned with iDVI users.
  • Image Upload Instructions – Instruction on how upload images and videos was added to the iDVI view of the inspection screen. This will reduce confusion when uploading images and videos to iDVI.

Bug Fixes:

  • Video Playback – We have fixed a bug where the screen would go black or freeze when trying to review a video that was just uploaded on iOS devices.
  • Notifications – Some WO and QC notifications were not being sent. We have fixed this.

  • Misc. – Several smaller bugs related to technical components have been addressed in this release.

7/14/2022 – System Improvements


  • DVI – Video time limit has been increased. 5 minutes (300 seconds) is the new limit. Previously the limit was 1 minute (60 seconds).
  • TechFlow – Real-time. Previously, the auto-refresh timer on Techflow has been several minutes. We’ve enhanced TechFlow to be real-time, in much the same manner as the Active Customer Page.
  • MotoVisuals – Instead of linking out to MotoVisuals, the educational videos now load in a modal. This should enhance the experience for recipients of these videos.
  • Protractor – We now permit dashes in the RVH notes transfer. Previously dashes were underappreciated, ignored, or neglected.
  • Email – We have added a user setting for notifications. If you would like an email when a DVI, WO, or QC is completed, go for it! Maybe filter it too!

iDVI Enhancements:

  • Email Notifications – This very useful feature enables claims adjustors who may not have Autoflow’s iDVI Dashboard open in plain view to receive real time notifications of a completed inspection via email.
  • UI/UX Enhancements – We have been busy improving the user experience by changing some of the most common screens in iDVI to be more aligned with iDVI users.

Bug Fixes:

  • WO/QC – Tagged RVH items in the DVI were not appearing in the QC and WO. This was not intentional. This should now be uniform across all worksheets.

  • Work Order – An issue requiring work orders to be refreshed if the tab was left open overnight has been addressed.
  • Reporting – Multiple minor bugs related to reporting rewrites have been addressed.
  • Benchmark Score Modal – DVI completion time was occasionally appearing inaccurate inside the modal of the DVI (but not in the DVI report). This is now corrected.
  • Spelling – We found a typo in a report screen. It was corrected. OK, we didn’t see it, someone else did. We fixed it. Embarrassing!
  • Misc – Several smaller bugs related to technical components have been addressed in this release.

6/22/2022 – System Improvements


  • Sales Report – Added count of total inspections as a pill selection. This allows for a quick understanding of total closed tickets for a time period vs. the total number of tickets with DVI’s.
  • Engaged Report – Rewrite of the engaged report allows you to focus on engagement with familiar report customizations already available in newer reports.
  • Manage Users Page – We’ve added a column to give at-a-glance insight into user mapping. This should help users identify when a staff member has not been properly linked with their SMS username.
  • DVI Line Item History – It is now more clear what mileage an item was addressed at in previous inspections, and if it was addressed.
  • DVI – New Sub-Statuses are available so techs can choose notes directly from the Green/Yellow/Red statuses. This is a new feature with a lot of flexibility for shops to standardize language across entire categories or individual line items. See our training page for details and manage sub statuses in DVI Sheet Setup

  • Tire Inspections – Powersports and motorcycle facilities now have a graphical tire inspection that better matches the number of wheels on their client’s vehicles.

iDVI Enhancements:

  • Resend iDVI Request – Adjustors can now resend an iDVI Inspection Request directly from the DVI. Previous repair facility contact info is pre-populated for and allows for quick resends. Resending the iDVI request also moves the status of the request back to the inspecting or pre-completion status automatically.
  • iDVI Report – This new report will allow claims adjudicators and claims management personnel to view key metrics about iDVIs sent and completed over a selected date range.
  • iDVI Tire Inspections – Powersports and motorcycle facilities now have a graphical tire inspection that better matches the number of wheels on their client’s vehicles.
  • iDVI Image Upload – When uploading an image to the iDVI we have updated the choices to “Add Image” or “Add Video” to avoid confusion from repair facilities.

Bug Fixes:

  • Widget – Received time was not correct for all users. Now it is!
  • Widget – The submit button was sometimes buried under messages, this has been moved to be more accessible.
  • DVI – Changing the sign-off user was not always populated the top most user option. We’ve also added Writers to the list of potential sign-off personnel, these were unintentionally left out of the drop-down.
  • Adding Users – A bug preventing SMS usernames from saving during user creation has been resolved.
  • Calendar – Appointment time is now appearing properly on the calendar for all users.
  • DVI Links – Links to DVI’s no longer expire after one year. It will no longer be necessary to resend an inspection if your client has retained the link from the original visit.

6/1/2022 – System Improvements


  • Technical – The main element of this release is a large technical update benefiting our users of integrated management systems. This is a phased rollout that will occur over the next several releases. Users should notice no changes in functionality or integration behaviors in this time. We look forward to more efficient improvements to integrations in the near future when this important update is concluded.
  • DVI – Administrators can now make images and/or videos required on a DVI. In DVI Sheet Setup, you can click the camera icon next to a line item to require an image for that item on all inspections Users cannot submit a DVI as completed unless an image is included. If line item videos are permitted, another icon will also appear which allows the admin to require a video in the same manner. These options are in addition to the original ‘required’ button. Any combination of requirements are permitted.
  • DVIEnhanced alerts for DVI users are now in place. The new alerts are more descriptive of the type of requirement that is missing from a DVI. This will assist users in correcting those items and enable them to get those DVI’s submitted!

Bug Fixes:

  • The new ability to pre-attach Moto-Visuals videos to a DVI is now fully restored. The manner in which the API calls occur has been modified to be more efficient. Pre-attaching MV videos is an option in DVI Sheet Setup. Moto-Visuals integration is a free integration for MV subscribers.

5/11/2022 – System Improvements


  • UI – Add Customer Page – The UI has been updated to allow for a more streamlined adding process. This mostly impacts standalone users, but even users with management system integrations will see this change.

  • Work Order – Major Technical Update – Work Order has been updated to enable advanced features and full utility of assets that have been implemented in other areas of the tool.
  • Work Order – Videos can be added on individual jobs as well as images. In the past, videos had to be added in a special section titled “Add Video.
