Mission name format (Optional)

ℹī¸

If you leave this field blank, you will need to create the Mission name manually every time.

Defining the Mission name format is beneficial especially if you are not using a clear unique shipment ID to name your missions. In these cases you could use a format like for example (timestamp, what you are shipping, and the temperature range):

Example:

Mission name format: {t} Dairy 2-8C Result: (2020-11-01 08:00 Dairy 2-8C).

To create the mission name format, you may use custom name formatting. This will capture the following information to the mission name:

{x} the user who created the mission (they need to have an account in Logmore Cloud)

{t} date and time when the mission was created

{i} the incremental number of missions created using this template (i.e. if its the first mission created using the template, the (i) number will be 1. If it's the 65th mission created using the template, the (i) number will be 65, etc. etc.).

Ask for "Mission name" input on mission creation (Optional)

Select the checkbox if you want to require input from the user creating the mission.

Mission naming guide (Optional)
