Exporting data is a key feature of any data tool, and this is true of Fleets Analyzer. When we designed the export feature we increased (compared to previous products) the limit on the number of exportable rows to 100,000 and placed no limit on the number of columns. We also made sure that the exported Excel file is an exact copy of the results grid, including the column order.
What we didn’t have access to when designing the export solution for Fleets Analyser was data on the export habits of users of our previous products (ACAS and ASO Fleets).

We recently (March 2017) solicited feedback from users regarding the possibility of including a “Run search” button. At the moment, a search is initiated after each filter has been added via the Quick Filter Select (QFS).

There are two reasons why we were considering making this change:
We had received a request from a user who suggested we do so.
It would reduce the number of queries being sent to our servers, and therefore reduce the server load.
The mock-up below shows how this could look if implemented. In the mock-up the selected filters are no longer in sync with the results (as a new filter has been added since the search was last run), so the results are “disabled”, and a “Run search” button has been added.
