Important Update: Improved Printing and Quick Links

Important Update: Improved Printing and Quick Links

A key focus of the latest release of ProDemand was to improve printing throughout the product. We’ve made several important enhancements and every one of them is in direct response to customer feedback. We listened and have implemented improvements that we know are important to you, including:

  • Wiring Diagrams You can now print to show highlighted and hidden wires. We’ve also included the ability to print the diagram at your zoom level so that your printed sheet will reflect the configuration of the diagram you see on the screen.
  • Line Drawn Diagrams When you open a diagram within the procedures of ProDemand, the diagram will now open full size without the need to zoom in.
  • Maintenance Checklist Printing – In the Maintenance module, the checklist printout will include the selected mileage services instead of asking you to enter an odometer reading. If you enter an odometer reading, the maintenance checklist will print according to the odometer. Also, through tools a shop settings, you can set the maintenance checklist to include a custom header and/or footer so that you can include your shop information on the printed checklist you give to customers.

The Quick Links Menu has also been updated. You’ll find the Quick Links Menu on the right hand side of the screen in ProDemand. It contains links to the most commonly looked up information in the product. With this release we’ve expanded the content of Quick Links to offer direct access to:

  • Common Specifications and Procedures
  • DTC Index
  • Electrical Component Locations
  • Fluid Capacities
  • Technical Bulletins
  • Tire Fitment
  • Wiring Diagrams

Note: The Conversion Calculator, which had been located in the Quick Links Menu, is now found in the “Tools” Menu.

You’ll also notice that we’ve updated the category titles in the Components and Vehicle Reference modules. When you navigate to these modules you will see that the category titles now match industry standards (and the familiar OnDemand5 category list).
