Mission name format (Optional)

ℹ️

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)

If you want to add instruction for the user creating the mission, add it here.

Mission note (Optional)

If you add a note here, it will be visible in all missions that are created with this template.

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

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

.

  1. Check the box Auto-end mission on first scan if you want this mission to end after the logger has been scanned for the first time since the mission had started.
  2. Use this function if the logger is scanned only on the recipient's end.

  3. Check the box Alert status to have status alerts displayed on the Scan page.
  4. Make these status alerts public if you want anyone without a Logmore account to see the status.

  5. In Infotext, add a text that is displayed on the Scan page. You can set different messages for the scan page with and without alerts.
  6. For example, provide instructions on what should be done and who should be contacted when the mission has alerts. You can add instructions on how to return the logger.

  1. Check the box β€œEnd monitoring” button to allow for the mission ending from the Scan page. The person scanning will see an "End monitoring" button displayed on the Scan page.
  2. Make this option public if you want anyone outside of your team to be able to end the mission.

  3. Check Show alert status after mission ended and set the period for which the alert status page will appear. The person scanning the logger can see the alert status page for a specific time after the mission has been ended.
❗

For a mission with several loggers, scanning one of the loggers when the auto-end on the first scan is on or pressing the β€œEnd monitoring” button will end this mission for other loggers attached to it as well. Enable Show alert status after mission ended for the receiver to see the alert status when scanning other loggers after the mission has ended.

  1. Allow comments if the person scanning the logger should add comments about the shipment.
  2. Make the commenting public to allow anyone to leave comments from the Scan page without logging in.
