Important Update: New TSB Search, plus more…

The ProDemand product development team has been working on the top issues that users have submitted into our feedback system. The latest product release reflects that effort, and includes a new TSB search, as well as improved navigation, vehicle selection and printing capabilities. Look for the team to continue providing frequent updates throughout 2015 to bring you more features based on your feedback.

Here’s an overview of the latest enhancements:

  • TSB Search added to Quick Links: Using the TSB selection in the Quick Links menu, you can now search for a specific TSB. The search looks at reference number or words in the title.

  • Improved ProDemand navigation: When switching between modules, ProDemand now remembers the previous module and tab that you had read, then automatically takes you to your previous position when navigating back from another module. For example: You are reviewing information under the Procedures tab within the 1Search module and switch to the Reset tab under the Maintenance module. When you switch back to the Procedures tab in 1Search, ProDemand remembers the heading you had previously selected and drops you off in that position. This will save you time by eliminating the need to re-navigate to your information.
  • Choice between desktop and mobile versions (due 2/25/2015): If you view ProDemand on a mobile device, you will now have a choice of logging in to the desktop version of ProDemand instead of automatically being directed to the mobile version. If you are using a mobile device, this choice appears in a banner running along the top of the landing page,

NOTE: ProDemand Mobile is optimized for Android and Apple tablets. if you are using a device that is not Android or Apple (i.e. a Windows tablet), you can use ProDemand by selecting the desktop version when you log in. Be sure to click  “Switch to desktop version” before logging in.

  • Mileage interval selected by user will print on the Maintenance Checklist: The default mileage interval to print has been changed to be the selected mileage interval in the Maintenance Module.  Previously, the odometer selection was the default selection for mileage. With this change, users no longer have to click back into vehicle selection to change the odometer reading for the maintenance print selection to change.
  •  Improved zoomed print capabilities of wiring diagrams: In the previous software update, ProDemand added zoomed printing for wiring diagrams allowing you to select and print a section of the wiring diagram. We’ve refined this capability so that what you now see on the screen will more closely match your printout.
  •  Extended column width when selecting a vehicle: ProDemand now takes advantage of the full display space during vehicle selection. For example: Previously, with smaller screen resolutions, when you selected a “2010 Chevrolet Cab & Chassis Silverado,” the model selection for “Cab & Chassis Silverado” would wrap onto two lines, making you think this selection was two separate models instead of one. With the improvement, ProDemand now uses the full display space and the model selection of “Cab and Chassis Silverado” will properly display on one line.
