Detailed descriptions of each report have been added to the Reports index page. We hope this provides a clear view of the insights and analytics available for your terminal operations with Octopi.
Direct Discharge for Rail Operations
Rail operations now have the option to skip work queues and instead discharge cargo directly to a designated heap or yard slot. While discharging cargo, fill the Yard Slot field with assigned location for the active cargo and click discharge.
Alternatively, if the cargo is discharged and Yard Slot field is left blank, the cargo will automatically be added to a work queue until it is assigned a location and moved to the yard.
