Management > Preferences > Vehicle Alias


When you Import a Cost File, Frotcom try to will make a match of the license plates defined in the cost file with the vehicles that are registered in your Frotcom account. For the situations where a match is not found because the vehicle designations in the cost file are not the same as the designations in Frotcom, it is possible to use proposed aliasing features. To manage such associations, go to the Vehicles alias tab, on the Management > Preferences panel. You will see the following panel:

It contains the following information:

Columns Description
Vehicle in Frotcom License plate of the vehicle to be aliased (as it is in Frotcom's data base). 

Tag that triggers the association to the vehicle whose license plate is defined in the Vehicle in Frotcom column.

Include in Import If Yes, Frotcom will automatically make the association of the tag in the association column with the vehicle in the Vehicle in Frotcom column, when importing the cost file. If No, no automatic association will be done.
